Clinical Trials - Phase -I

Single Ascending Dose studies ( SAD )

In single Ascending dose studies small groups of patients consisting of 3 to 6 people are given small doses of the drug to be tested and are then observed for as specific period of time . If these patients do not develop any side effects during the period of observation, a higher dosage of the same drug is tried out on a new group of individuals. This process continues until intolerable side effects start showing up, this stage denotes the Maximum Tolerated Dose ( MTD) of the drug .

My colleagues and I have just concluded one of India's most in-depth studies on "Clinical Trials in India". We have looked at various areas such as:
- Market Trends
- Growth Drivers
- Regulatory Bodies and Framework
- Major Players.
-Etc.
We interviewed over 200 individuals and firms to collect the data in what we believe is one of the most detailed study on the subject in India.
