Example text

In evaluating 98 pesticides, Gaines (37) observed that the majority of orally administered drugs were more toxic in females as compared to males. The reverse was true for only 9/98 compounds. However, similar sex-related differences were not observed in dogs (38). Studies involving other P450 systems likewise support the premise that rats tend to express sex-related differences more frequently than do other animal species (38,39). In part, sex differences in the daily rhythm of rat hepatic enzymes have been linked to sex differences in the pattern of growth hormone secretion (28).

Before discussing the elements of a preclinical development program, some comments on the regulatory environment should be considered. The fundamental mandate of regulatory agencies is to ensure that clinical trials are conducted in a safe manner and that only drug candidates shown to be safe and effective are approved for commercial use. Early, scientifically rigorous interactions between a regulatory agency and industrial scientists will ensure that all concerns are addressed and that common objectives are determined.

It should be anticipated that as studies are completed and observations are confirmed, ongoing and future studies are likely to require modification. Throughout all development programs, it is imperative that the preclinical scientist assesses each study prior to implementation. What questions must be answered by the study? Do those questions warrant animal use or can more ethical in vitro methods be utilized. Does the proposed study have a high likelihood of answering those questions? If so, will the answers affect the subsequent clinical development?
