Reinventing Drug Candidate Selection
Late-stage failures are expensive, and many could have been prevented if the right information and data had been available earlier in the drug development process. This is particularly relevant to drug safety and regulatory approvals, where evidence-based information, such as that found in FDA and EMA drug approval documents, offers insights that can help reduce time spent in development and navigating regulatory approval cycles – which can mitigate the likelihood of late-stage failures.
Elsevier R&D Solutions improve risk and benefit analyses by providing supportive and comparative drug safety precedent data. This data enables pharma professionals to make better-informed scientific, business and regulatory decisions that ensure development processes happen on time and within budget, including informing preclinical study designs with precedent information on drugs in the same or similar classes.
