U.S. Investigational New Drug (IND) Application


Background of IND Application

U.S. Investigational New Drug (IND) Application

The investigational new drug (IND) application is a crucial step in drug development in the United States. Before an innovative drug can be tested on humans, it must first undergo extensive preclinical testing to ensure its safety and efficacy. Once this testing has been completed, an IND application can be submitted to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which allows the drug to be tested in clinical trials. The IND application must contain information in three broad areas, including animal pharmacology and toxicology studies, manufacturing information, clinical protocols, and investigator information.

At the IND filing stage, the FDA generally requires that a drug applicant must:

  • Complete pharmacological studies of the drug;
  • Conduct acute toxicity tests on at least 2 kinds of animals;
  • Conduct short-term studies for a period of 2 weeks to 3 months in accordance with the proposed use of the drug.
