Predictive biomarker-based assay development in the context of drug development and lifecycle

Published by EMA

EMAPredictive Biomarkers

The proposed concept paper is intended to be developed into a guideline which will replace the reflection paper on co-development of pharmacogenomic biomarkers and assays in the context of drug development. The guideline will provide recommendations on the interface between predictive biomarker-based assays including CDx, and the development and lifecycle of a medicine.

EMAGuidelineAnimal ModelsNon-Clinical TestingJuvanile AnimalsPaediatric Indications

This document provides guidance on the need for, role and timing of studies in juvenile animals in the non-clinical safety evaluation of medicinal products for paediatric use. It is applicable to initial medicinal products applications and also to authorised medicinal products being further developed to include paediatric indications. It outlines potential safety concerns that cannot be adequately assessed in the adult population, in standard non-clinical studies, or in clinical trials.
