About this book


This book is a practical detailed and comprehensive guide for those involved in the conduct of early human studies with new drugs. It covers the pre-clinical information relevant to first human studies including pharmaceutical, metabolic, toxicological and regulatory aspects, as well as the general considerations relevant to all early human studies. Each major therapeutic area is considered by class of activity of drug. The chapters describe what measurements of drug activity are available in healthy human subjects and in patients, how to make the measurements, their value and their limitations. The contributors are drawn internationally both from the pharmaceutical industry and academia. The book provides a unique practical guide to all concerned with the development of new drugs.
