Supplemental Safety Pharmacology Studies

Register/Login Button

Co-Chairs:Alfred Botchway, MSc, PhD, Xenometrics, Stilwell, KS, United States, and Jeffrey McKee, PhD, MS, PhD, DABT, Baxter, Round Lake, IL, United States

The ICH S7A guidelines have recommended that when concerns arise from core battery studies, clinical trials, post marketing surveillance, or from other nonclinical studies, then it is prudent to conduct supplemental safety pharmacology studies. These supplemental studies are designed to evaluate potential adverse pharmacodynamic effects on organ system functions not addressed by the core battery or repeated dose toxicity studies. This course will provide to individuals involved in the development of therapeutic agents. The session will focus on study designs and sample results used to evaluate the renal/urinary, autonomic and gastrointestinal system, and understanding the physiological basis of the supplemental tests.
