Just click on the various stages below to reveal the information.

Pre Licensing Activities

  • Phase II-IIIa research covers subsequent clinical trials conducted prior to a marketing licence application and is designed to gather further data in relation to safety and efficacy to be used as part of the submission. Marketed products may fall under the same regulations if the product is used as part of an interventional trial. (The product must meet the definition of an investigational medicinal product -IMP.)
  • Company Core Safety Information finalised and benefit-risk confirmed.
  • Prepare marketing authorisation application (MAA)/new drug application(NDA) dossier.
  • The process for gathering data contained in the clinical safety and efficacy section of the common technical document (ICH M4E) and establishing the processes which formulate the Quality and Chemistry and Manufacturing Controls section of the common technical document (ICH M4Q).
