Human Clinical

As a result of pharmaceutical companies tend to produce semi-synthetic and synthetic drugs and since previous centuries mid term also by discovery, production and supplying new drugs, some serious problems and side effects were emerged consequently, comprehensive regulations were issued to commit studies on animals as well as humans in advance to launch new drugs into the market. Usually clinical trials on humans to discover or confirm clinical effects, and pharmacology (pharmacodinamice & pharmacokinetic) or side effects are done and 4 Phases are included: Phase I: Researchers test an experimental drug or treatment in a small group of people (20-80) for first time to evaluate its safety, determine an appropriate dosage, trace what happens to the compound in the body, and begin to identify side effects. Phase II: The drug or treatment being studies is given to a larger group of people with the disease (100-300) to obtain preliminary evidence of an effect and to further evaluate its safety. If there is evidence of an effect and the risks are considered acceptable, the drug may move to the next stage. Phase III: This phase of trial tests a drug candidate in a larger number of people with the disease (at lest 1000), further testing its effectiveness and monitoring for side effects, in some cases this will be compared to a treatment standard, if one is already available. Phase IV: After a drug or treatment has been approved by the appropriate government and regulatory agencies and is being marketed, The company may study its safety and effectiveness over a longer period of time and in a larger number of people (this phase also are known as post-marketing studies). The company may also continue to study some of our marketed products for new indications. Thousands of people usually participate in phase IV trials and this phase exists until the product is used in the market and its effects will be recorded in the drug master file. Also in Iran, by expanding pharmaceutical companies and entering into the industry in various areas of drug, the necessity clinical trials commitment has been felt more than ever to prove the effectiveness and efficiency of drug and lack of side effects . Of course, almost all pharmaceutical companies’ products in Iran are generic and those previously have been subject to extensive clinical trials by the main manufacturers so there is no need to study. However, some companies assumed themselves to investigate some pharmaceutical drugs which Aburaihan pharmaceutical Co. is the leading among them. The studies done by this Co. usually have been defined to be proven on efficacy and lack of side effects by its own self or in comparison with imported similar drug. These studies are similar to standard clinical trials third phase. However, in some special cases also the usage of a new drug has been studied. It should be noted that all studies by Aburaihan pharmaceutical Co. reputable academic centers and approved by these centers´ are done by ethics committee. The Aburaihan pharmaceutical Co. is interested cooperating with drug companies, research centers, universities, medical students and residents group; to carry out studies on its own drugs
