Regulatory Scientific Advice

Scientific advice is the provision of advice to a company by a regional or national Regulatory Authority, on the appropriate tests and studies required in the development of a medicine or on the quality of a medicine. Timely engagement with a relevant authority can increase the probability of a positive outcome for your registration.

Non Clinical Development Planning

The non clinical (or pre-clinical) development phase primarily aims to identify which therapy has the greatest probability of success, assess its safety, and build solid scientific foundations before transition to the clinical development.

The non clinical development of a medicine is complex and regulatory-driven, with each programme requiring a customised approach, suited to support the follow-on clinical program. At Bionical Emas, we can advise on the right approach and ensure your non clinical package meets the immediate and/or long-term needs.

Regulatory Roadmap

Roadmaps are designed to inform our clients of what they need to know, before business-critical decisions are made. A Roadmap will provide the client with an applicable suite of potential regulatory procedures. We’ll outline the key considerations of each, to enable you to decide which procedures are appropriate for your eventual Submission Strategy.

Regulatory Submission Strategy

With a Roadmap in place, or if a client has reasonable idea of a pathway, we can develop a Regulatory Submission Strategy, which can cover national, regional or global markets. The Strategy will give the client a clear perception of data requirements, timings and the sequence of regulatory activities.
