3rd German Pharm-Tox Summit

AGAH Workshop

AGAH Workshop GPTS 2018: First-in-human trials – what you need to know. 

This workshop addresses young scientists working in basic pharmacological research and other colleagues involved in biomedical research who would like to know more about early phase clinical development. First-in-human trials will be the focus of this workshop. Non-clinical prerequisites, ethical and regulatory requirements, starting dose, dose escalation rules and stopping criteria, design aspects and clinical conduct, as well as pros and cons of integrated protocols will be addressed.
