Findings from Bentley University Broaden Understanding of Clinical Trials and Studies (Timelines of translational science: From technology initiation to FDA approval)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Medical Letter on the CDC & FDA Current study results on Clinical Research - Clinical Trials and Studies have been published. According to news reporting out of Waltham, Massachusetts, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "While timelines for clinical development have been extensively studied, there is little data on the broader path from initiation of research on novel drug targets, to approval of drugs based on this research. We examined timelines of translational science for 138 drugs and biologicals approved by the FDA from 2010-2014 using an analytical model of technology maturation."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Bentley University, "Research on targets for 102 products exhibited a characteristic (S-curve) maturation pattern with exponential growth between statistically defined technology initiation and established points. The median initiation was 1974, with a median of 25 years to the established point, 28 years to first clinical trials, and 36 years to FDA approval. No products were approved before the established point, and development timelines were significantly longer when the clinical trials began before this point (11.5 vs 8.5 years, p<0.0005)."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Technological maturation represents the longest stage of translation, and significantly impacts the efficiency of drug development."
