IND-Enabling Toxicology Programs
The challenge of drug discovery and drug development to the pharmaceutical toxicologist is that a drug is supposed to have a biological function and requires a scientific understanding of mechanistically based toxicity. Furthermore, drug development allows the toxicologist become somewhat flexible in developing the toxicology program that allows the entry into early stage clinical trials.
