Short description This guide offers an overview of the most common types of trial undertaken in early clinical development. The coverage discusses the different methodologies and the impact of new technologies, both clinical and statistical, on clinical development. It also describes how information at the end of early phase development can be brought together to facilitate and enhance decisions pertinent to a clinical development program. This is an essential resource for both researchers working in early phase trials and students of pharmaceutical medicine.
