Slide 2:

Purpose : To frame guidelines for conduct of Clinical research. Creating opportunities for Foreigners in India. Control and regulation for new drugs. CDSCO and DTAB formulated GCP under Schedule Y in 2005.

Slide 3:

Why India : India offers unique opportunities for conducting clinical trials in view of : the large patient pool, well- trained and enthusiastic investigators and premiere medical institutes available in the country considerable low per patient trial cost, as compared to developed countries.

Slide 5:

S ystematic study of pharmaceutical products On human subjects To discover or verify the clinical, pharmacological effects. adverse effects. safety and efficacy. Phases : Human/Clinical Pharmacology trials (Phase I) Exploratory trials (Phase II) Confirmatory trials ( Phase III) Phase IV ( Post Marketing Surveillance )

Slide 7:

The purpose of clinical trial is to find out whether a medication or treatment regimen is safe and effective for the treatment of a specific condition or disease.

Nature of trials:

Nature of trials Already approved/marketed drugs, phase III trials as required under item 7 of Appendix I (to Sch. Y) usually are required. If not than is initiated from one phase earlier to the phase of trials in other countries. For new drug substances discovered in other countries phase I trials are not usually allowed to be initiated in India unless phase I data as required under Item 5 of the said Appendix from other countries are available. For new drug substances discovered in India, clinical trials are required to be carried out in India right from phase I as required from Item 5 of the said Appendix.

Permission for trials:

Permission for trials May be obtained by applying in Form 12 for a test license (TL) to import or manufacture the drug under the Rules. Data appropriate for the various phases of clinical trials to be carried out should accompany the application as per format given in Appendix I (Items I-4). The names of investigators and institutions should also be submitted for approval. The investigators selected should possess appropriate qualifications and experience . Permission to carry out clinical trials with a new drug is issued along with a test license in Form 11. It is desirable that protocols for clinical trials be reviewed and approved by the institution’s ethical committee . For new drugs having potential for use in children, permission for clinical trials in the paediatric age group is normally given after phase III trials as required under item 7 of the said Appendix, in adults are completed. However, if the drug is of value primarily in a disease of children, early trials in the paediatric age group may be allowed.

Responsibilities of Sponsor/ Investigator:

Responsibilities of Sponsor/ Investigator Sponsors are required to submit to the Licensing Authority as given under Rule 21 an annual status report on each clinical trial, namely, ongoing, completed, or terminated. In case a trial is terminated, reason for this should be stated. Any unusual, unexpected, or serious adverse drug reaction (ADR) detected during a trial should be promptly communicated by the sponsor to the Licensing Authority under Rule 21 and the other investigators. In all trials an informed, written consent is required to be obtained from each volunteer/patient in the prescribed form (See Appendix V), which must be signed, by the patient/volunteer and the chief investigator.

Chemical and Pharmaceutical Information (See Appendix I to Sch. Y, Item 2):

Chemical and Pharmaceutical Information (See Appendix I to Sch. Y, Item 2) Most of the data under this heading are required with the application for marketing permission. When the application is for clinical trials only, information covered in item 2.1 to 2.3 of Appendix I will usually suffice.

Animal Toxicology (Appendix I – Sch. Y - Item 4.2) :

Animal Toxicology (Appendix I – Sch. Y - Item 4.2) Acute toxicity Acute toxicity studies should be carried out in at least two species, usually mice and rats using the same route as intended for humans. In addition, at least two more route should be used to ensure systemic absorption of the drug. Mortality should be looked for up to 72 hrs after parentral administration and up to 7 days after oral administration . Symptoms, signs and mode of death should be reported, with appropriate macroscopic and microscopic findings where necessary

Reproduction studies (Appendix I – Sch. Y, item 4.4):

Reproduction studies (Appendix I – Sch. Y, item 4.4) Reproduction studies need to be carried out only if the new drug is proposed to be studied or used in women of childbearing age. Two species should generally be used, one of them being non-rodent if possible. It mainly includes three types of studies …. Fertility studies Teratogenicity studies Perinatal studies

Local toxicity (See Appendix I, Sch. Y, Item 4.5) :

Local toxicity (See Appendix I, Sch. Y, Item 4.5) These studies are required when the new drug Is proposed to be used typically in humans. The drug should be applied to an appropriate site to determine local effects in a suitable species such as guinea pigs or rabbits, if the drug is absorbed from the site of applications, appropriate systemic toxicity studies will be required.

Long-term toxicity (See Appendix I – Sch. Y, Item 1.3) :

Long-term toxicity (See Appendix I – Sch. Y, Item 1.3) Studies should be carried out in at least 2 mammalian species, of which one should be a non-rodent. Duration of study will depend on whether the application is for marketing permission or for clinical trial. In these studies the drug should be administered 7 days a week by the route intended for clinical use in humans. The number of animals required for these studies, i.e. the minimum number on which data should be available. Control group of animals should also be included for the comparison of the TD and ED.

Mutagenicity and Carcinogenicity (See Appendix I, Sch. Y Item 4,6) :

Mutagenicity and Carcinogenicity (See Appendix I, Sch. Y Item 4,6) Studies are required to be carried out if the drug or its metabolite is related to a known carcinogen or when the nature and action of the drug is such as to suggest a carcinogenic/mutagenic potential. For carcinogenicity studies, at least two species should be used. Species should not have high incidence of spontaneous tumors and should preferably be known to metabolize the drug in the same manner as humans. At least three does levels should be used; the highest does should be sub-lethal but cause observable toxicity; the lowest does should be comparable to the intended human therapeutic does or a multiple of it. A control group should always be included.

Animal Pharmacology (See Appendix I to Sch. Y, Item 3.2) :

Animal Pharmacology (See Appendix I to Sch. Y, Item 3.2) Specific pharmacological actions are those with therapeutic-potential for humans. These should be described according to the animal models and species used. Wherever possible, dose response relationships and ED 50s should be given. Special studies to elucidate mode of action may also be described. General pharmacological action (see Appendix I to Sch. Y, Item 3.3) are effects on other organs and systems, especially cardiovascular, respiratory and central nervous systems. Pharmacokinetic data help to relate the drug effect with plasma concentration and should be given to the extent available.

Special Studies:

Special Studies Include studies on solid oral dosage forms, such as BA and dissolution studies. These are required to be submitted on the formulations manufactured in the country. (See Appendix I, Items 8.1 and 8.2) These include studies to explore additional aspects of the drug, e.g. use in elderly patients or patients with renal failure, secondary or ancillary effects, interactions, etc. (See Appendix I to Sch. Y, Item 8.1 and 8.2).

Submission of Reports (Appendix II to Schedule Y) :

Submission of Reports (Appendix II to Schedule Y) The reports of completed clinical trials shall be submitted by the applicant duly signed by the investigator within a stipulated period of time. The applicant should do so even if he is no longer interested to market the drug in the country unless there are sufficient reasons for not doing so.

Regulatory status in other counties:

Regulatory status in other counties It is important to state if any restrictions have been placed on the use of the drug in any other country, e.g. dosage limits, exclusion of certain age groups, warnings about adverse drug reaction, etc. (See Appendix I, Sch. Y, Item 9.2) Likewise, if the drug has been withdrawn from any country especially by a regulatory directive such information should e furnished along with reasons and their relevance, if any, to India (See Appendix I, Item 9.1(d)).

Marketing Information:

Marketing Information The product monograph should comprise the full prescribing information necessary to enable a physician to use the drug properly. It should include description, actions, indications, dosage precautions, drug interactions, warnings and adverse reactions. The drafts of label and carton texts should comply with provisions of Rules 96 and 97 of the said rules.
