Toxicology and pharmacology are challenging areas in the clinical trial process, says the 150 page report. Although the results gained are vital for the safety of medicines and are required by regulatory bodies around the world, the processes involved, especially animal testing, remain controversial. Almost all of the work is outsourced and the major companies involved have come under considerable pressure from activist groups.
Outsourcing Toxicology and Pharmacology is essential reading for everyone involved in clinical trials and drug development including senior staff in pharmaceutical companies and CROs, trial managers and staff and those staff directly involved in toxicology and pharmacology testing, product, process and analytical development, R&D, and regulatory affairs. The report gives an authoritative, detailed and clear explanation of the issues surrounding toxicology testing, its implications for the market and for the biotech and pharmaceutical industries.
