"Go inside the drug development and FDA regulatory process with today's most authoritative and popular reference on the topic. In its all-new 2008 edition, New Drug Development: A Regulatory Overview addresses the most cutting-edge developments redefining how new drugs are developed and regulated today, including: how the FDA Amendments Act of 2007 will affect everything from drug reviews to postmarketing requirements; how the CDER's efforts to integrate a culture of drug safety has affected the center's structure and its new drug review and approval processes; how CDER's much-anticipated January 2008 transition to the eCTD as the only valid esubmission format will affect the FDA's drug submission and review process; how the FDA and industry are already integrating pharmacogenomics, computer simulation, and other emerging technologies to inform key decisions; and which drug development strategies are fulfilling their promise and offering optimal returns for industry, given the explosion of accelerated development/approval programs and pilot programs to speed the drug development and review process."--Publisher's description.
