Rationalizing the Preclinical-Clinical Hurdle – How to Overcome the Toxicology Exposure Challenge

Medicon Valley Alliance and Quotient Sciences would like to welcome you to a Good Morning Meeting.

In this presentation, Dr. Andrew Parker will discuss transitioning from pre-clinical to clinical stages, covering regulatory expectations and enabling technologies for poorly soluble molecules. He will also showcase solutions developed by our team using the Quotient Sciences Translational Pharmaceutics® platform. This includes assessing amorphous solid dispersions compared to lipidics and size reduction, and how these translate into suitable presentations for oral administration and dose escalation.

Key learning objectives:
• How to identify the best development strategy, technology(s) and candidate(s), demonstrate solubility improvement and stability.
• Justify selection of prototypes as being suitable for testing in animals and potentially improving exposure to meet toxicology multiples required to justify entering a FIH study.
• Where to invest from early stage, modularity of the preclinical screen and how it can be refined based on your needs
