Investigational New Drug (IND) Decision Resource
Not sure whether or not you need to file an IND to conduct your
study? Think your study might be exempt?
You're not alone. The language in the Code of Federal Regulations
and the Food and Drug Safety Act is difficult to interpret and often
misunderstood. Many researchers make the mistake of not filing an
IND when by regulation, they are required to do so.
The Office of Clinial Research at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine has developed several resources to assist you with this process:
- IND Decision Tool
- The IND Decision Tool guides you through
a decision tree process
to help determine whether or not you need to file an IND. Use of the IND Decision Tool also can help clarify the conditions in which an IND is typically required.
