Enabled-First-in-Human™ – Accelerating Your Programs into Clinic and Through to Proof of Concept (PoC)

  • Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Enabled-First-in-Human™ programs re-engineer the pathway from candidate selection, into clinical development and through to Proof of Concept (PoC). Timelines for early development can be significantly accelerated and the associated costs reduced, supporting pharma development teams in their quest for ever increasing R&D efficiency and productivity.

Enabled-First-in-Human™ programs exploit Quotient’s Translational Pharmaceutics™ platform, which integrates real-time drug product manufacturing with clinical testing. This platform delivers:

  • Streamlined expenditure on drug product development and clinical trial manufacturing until the drug candidate has achieved PoC and been validated for full development
  • “Real time” modification of dose and formulation composition in response to clinical data (safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics) emerging from the program
  • Seamless and uninterrupted transition between clinical investigations in healthy volunteers and patients, enabling accelerated PoC read out

This webinar will describe the Translational Pharmaceutics™ platform and present Enabled-First-in-Human case studies to illustrate how it has been applied in early stage drug development programs.
