Harnessing bioanalytical data in early phase clinical pharmacology studies


Early clinical drug development aims to achieve a number of important objectives aimed at characterizing novel therapeutic candidates, including safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD). The bioanalytical laboratory plays an important role in providing PK and PD data that helps, for example, to guide dose selection and validate mechanism of action respectively. This webinar will provide insight on how bioanalytical data is deciphered in early-phase clinical trials to make important decisions to further clinical drug development.

What will you learn?

  • How PK and PD data is used in early-phase clinical trials
  • How preclinical data is used to design first-in-human (FIH) studies

Who may this interest?

  • Bioanalytical Scientists
  • Regulatory Scientists
  • Clinical Pharmacologists
