  7. 7. Investigator’s Brochure  The Investigator's Brochure (IB) is a compilation of the clinical and nonclinical data on the investigational product(s) that are relevant to the study of the product(s) in human subjects.
  8. 8. Purpose of I.B.  Its purpose is to provide Information to the Investigators and others involved in the trial such as the dose, dose frequency/interval, methods of administration: and safety monitoring procedures. The IB also provides insight to support the clinical management of the study subjects during the course of the clinical trial. The information should be presented in a concise and simple manner
  9. 9. Purpose of I.B  I.B. enables a clinician, or potential investigator, to understand it and make his/her own unbiased risk- benefit assessment of the appropriateness of the proposed trial. For this reason, a medically qualified person should generally participate in the editing of an IB
  10. 10. Contents of I.B  The Investigator Brochure should include: 1) Title Page A. Sponsor name B. The identity of each investigational product (i.e., research number, chemical or approved generic name, and trade name(s) where legally permissible and desired by the sponsor), C. The Release Date. D. Confidentiality Statement
  11. 11. CONTENTS OF IB 1. Table of contents 2. Summary – not exceeding 2 pages. highlighting the significant physical, chemical, pharmaceutical, pharmacological, toxicological, pharmacokinetic, metabolic, and clinical information available of IP 3. Introduction: chemical name, active ingredients, pharmacological class, anticipated – therapeutic/ diagnostic indication(s). General approach to be fallowed in evaluating the IP
  12. 12. 4. Description of I.P. Physical, Chemical and pharmaceutical properties of I.P. Storage and handling of I.P. Any structural similarity with the other known compound given.
  13. 13. 5. Non clinical studies  The results of all relevant nonclinical pharmacology, toxicology, pharmacokinetic, and investigational product metabolism studies should be provided in summary form.  The information provided may include:  Species tested,  Number of sex in each group  Unit dose (e.g., milligram/kilogram (mg/kg),  Dose interval,  Route of administration and  Duration of dosing.
  14. 14. 5.1 NON CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY: A summary of the pharmacological aspects of the investigational product studied in animals, should be included. 5.2 PHARMACOKINETICS AND PRODUCT METABOLISM IN ANIMALS A summary of the pharmacokinetics(ADME) and biological transformation and disposition(getting a drug into its appropriate position in the body and in an appropriate concentration) of the investigational product in all species studied should be given.
  15. 15. 5.3 TOXICOLOGY (The study of the adverse effects of chemicals on animals)  A summary of the toxicological effects found in relevant studies conducted in different animal species.  Single dose  Repeated dose  Carcinogenicity  Special studies (irritancy, sensitisation)  Reproductive toxicity  Genotoxicity (mutagenecity)
  16. 16. 6. EFFECTS IN HUMANS  A thorough discussion of the known effects of the investigational product(s) in humans should be provided, including information on pharmacokinetics, metabolism, Pharmacodynamics, dose response, safety, efficacy, and other pharmacological activities. (a) Pharmacokinetics and Product Metabolism in Humans A summary of information on the pharmacokinetics of the investigational product(s) should be presented. (b) Safety and Efficacy: A summary of information should be provided about the investigational product's safety, efficacy, pharmacodynamics (c) Marketing Experience: The IB should identify countries where the investigational product has been marketed or approved.
  17. 17. 7. Summary of Data and Guidance for the Investigator This section should contain nonclinical and clinical data of IP.  IB – provide the investigator a clear understanding of  The possible risks  Adverse reactions  Observations & precautions needed for the clinical trial.
