This webinar will focus on the regulatory requirements and expectancies for the conduct of studies to support the scheduling of new chemical entities. A perspective will be provided on past approaches to scheduling as well as an overview of the three study types; dependence, drug discrimination, and self-administration. The process of selection of species for conducting these studies will also be discussed.

The results of abuse liability studies are used to make recommendations about scheduling in the form of an 8-factor document. The 8-factor document will include both clinical and preclinical data. Emphasis of this webinar will be on decision-making points and how to design these studies to meet the FDA and EMA requirements.
