A Guide to Clinical Drug Research
This work provides practical advice, from the conception of an idea, planning a study and writing a protocol, through to the conduct of a study, data collection and analysis, and publication. It informs investigators what information they should expect sponsoring companies to provide, particularly when there is only limited information available about a new drug. It also explains what the company can expect of investigators, including the requirements of "good clinical practice". The text concentrates on the needs of the practising clinician and research team. It is not restricted to drug investigation, and should be relevant to all those involved in clinical research in a variety of settings.
