Note; Before we proceed, a Brief introduction, Tayana Solutions provides ERP for the process manufacturing industry. Acu Process Manufacturing is an ERP that manages the process manufacturing business smoothly.
Along with this, Tayana solution publishes articles, case studies, and regulations updates, to help process manufacturer updates and to keep them away from regulation violence.
Let’s learn more about the drugs review process through in detail;
The path a drug takes from the laboratory to your medicine cabinet is usually long. It depends on the drug and its intended use, as well as many other factors. Sometimes, a drug is developed to treat a specific disease. In addition to its intended use, a drug may also be found effective in treating or preventing other diseases.
As an example, Zidovudine (Retrovir), an anti-cancer drug, was discovered in the 1960s to be ineffective in treating cancer. In the 1980s, researchers found that the drug could treat AIDS and the Food and Drug Administration approved it for this purpose in 1987.
The vast majority of medications that go through animal testing do not advance to human trials. The FDA must approve drugs before they can be marketed in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), drugs must undergo a rigorous evaluation of their efficacy, manufacturing procedures, and side effects.
Drug development and review are complicated and lengthy process that involves several stages.
Our Acu Process Manufacturing will help you track your production process at every stage. It facilitates production, Inventory management, Compliance Management, Product Formulation, Labeling Management, Expiry Date Management, and many other critical operations.

Stage 01- Animal Tested: In the pharmaceutical industry, Investigational New Drug (IND) applications are sometimes submitted to the FDA prior to seeking advice.
The sponsor conducts preclinical tests, usually on laboratory animals, to show that the drug is reasonably safe. After the sponsor has submitted a research protocol to the FDA, the FDA decides whether it appears safe enough to proceed to clinical trials in humans.
Stage 02: IND Applications
Only after an investigational new drug (IND) has been reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration and a local institutional review board (IRB) can clinical trials in humans begin. The IRB is a panel of scientists and non-scientists that oversees clinical research.
The Independent Review Board (IRB) evaluates clinical trial protocols, which describe the type of people who may participate in a study, the schedule of tests and procedures, the medications and dosages to be studied, the length of the study, and other details.
Stage 03: Phase 0ne Testing
Phase one clinical trials are usually conducted on healthy human volunteers. This stage of the drug development process is designed to determine the most frequent side effects of the medication in question and to monitor its metabolism and excretion. Trials at this stage typically involve 20 to 80 test subjects.
Stage 04: Phase Two Testing
Phase 2 studies begin if Phase 1 results show that very small numbers of patients suffered unacceptable toxicity and that the drug does not work. The emphasis in Phase 1 is on safety, but effectiveness is also studied. In controlled trials, patients receiving the drug are compared with similar patients receiving a different treatment—usually an inactive substance (placebo), or a different drug. Safety continues to be evaluated, and short-term side effects are studied. Typically, the number of subjects in Phase 2 studies ranges from several dozen to several hundred.
Stage 05: Phase Three Testing
At the end of Phase 2, the FDA and sponsors discuss the proposed Phase 3 trials for a new drug. They discuss which type of study design would be most appropriate for showing that the drug works, and how large each trial should be. The FDA may then request additional information from a sponsor, delaying the submission of an application for another six to twelve months.
Phase 3 trials are the last stage of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-required testing before a drug can be approved for use by the general public. Additional studies are conducted on the drug’s safety and effectiveness, including studies of other populations and dosages, and studies combining this drug with other drugs. The number of subjects in these studies usually ranges from several hundred to about 3,000 people.
Stage 06: Review Meetings
Sponsors of approved products must conduct postmarket requirement and commitment studies—data-gathering efforts undertaken after a drug is approved. The FDA uses the results from this type of research to monitor the safety and efficacy of products on the market.
Stage 07: NDA Applications
The development of new drugs is a complex process involving many steps. The application for the first time a drug is given approval by the FDA to be marketed in the United States is called the New Drug Application (NDA). This document includes animal and human data and analyses of that data. It also includes information about how a drug behaves in the body and how it is manufactured. In this way, developers of new drugs are able to communicate with the FDA in order to provide complete information about their products.
Stage 08: Applications Review Process
The development of new drugs is a complex process involving many steps. The application for the first time a drug is given approval by the FDA to be marketed in the United States is called the New Drug Application (NDA). This document includes animal and human data and analyses of that data. It also includes information about how a drug behaves in the body and how it is manufactured. In this way, developers of new drugs are able to communicate with the FDA in order to provide complete information about their products.

The lengthy approval process “is almost entirely related to the pharmacovigilance and the clinical trials,” says Sandra Kweder, M.D., deputy director of the Office of New Drugs in the CDER. It takes several years to run a drug through the clinical trial process.
