Phase I Trials and IND’s: From Conception through Application:  Phase I Trials and IND’s: From Conception through Application Division of Cellular and Gene Therapies Office of Cellular, Tissue, and Gene Therapies Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research Food and Drug Administration Keith Wonnacott, Ph.D. “Many things once thought to be science fiction now really are.”:  - Second grade essay on scientific progress “Many things once thought to be science fiction now really are.” A Brief History of the Drug Regulatory Agencies:  A Brief History of the Drug Regulatory Agencies 1860 PRESIDENT LINCOLN appoints a chemist, Charles M. Wetherill, to serve in the new Department of Agriculture. This was the beginning of the Bureau of Chemistry, the predecessor of the Food and Drug Administration. 1862 Chemical Division, Department of Agriculture 1889 Chemical Division, USDA 1890 Division of Chemistry, USDA 1901 Bureau of Chemistry, USDA 1927 Food, Drug, and Insecticide Division, USDA 1930 Food and Drug Administration, USDA 1940 FDA, Federal Security Agency 1953 FDA, Department of Health, Education, and Welfare 1972 FDA, Department of Health and Human Services 1909 Bureau of Chemistry Lab Brief History of the Biologics Regulatory Agencies:  Brief History of the Biologics Regulatory Agencies 1887 JOSEPH KINYOUN establishes Laboratory of Hygeine within the Marine Hospital Service at Staten Island, NY. This laboratory was moved to Washington D.C. in 1891 and became the predecessor of the NIH. 1930 Hygienic Laboratory is renamed the National Institute of Health 1937 Division of Biologics Control created within NIH 1944 Laboratory of Biologics Control 1955 Division of Biological Standards (DBS) 1972 DBS is transferred to FDA and becomes Bureau of Biologics 1982 Bureau of Biologics merges with Bureau of Drugs 1988 Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research created Regulatory Authority:  Regulatory Authority Federal regulatory authority is a 3-tiered system. Statutes: THE LAW --- passed by Congress and signed by the President Regulations: details of the law --- written by the Agency and approved by the Executive Branch Guidance: the Agency’s interpretation of the Regulations Slide6:  1901 13 children in St. Louis died of tetanus after receiving diphtheria antitoxin from a horse named Jim 9 children die of tetanus from contaminated smallpox vaccine 1902 Biologics Control Act authorizes Hygienic Laboratory to issue regulations to ensure purity and safety of serums, vaccines, and similar products 1901-1906 Dr. Harvey Wiley used ‘poison squad’ to test toxicity of food additives. Upton Sinclair published “The Jungle”. 1906 Food and Drug Act prohibits interstate commerce in misbranded and adulterated foods, drinks, and drugs. 1912 Sherley Amendment prohibits labeling medicines with false therapeutic claims intended to defraud the purchaser THE LAW Slide7:  1937 Sulfanilimide elixir containing diethylene glycol kills 107 people 1938 Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act Extended control to cosmetics and therapeutic devices. Required new drugs to be shown safe before marketing-starting a new system of drug regulation. Eliminated the requirement to prove intent to defraud. Provided that safe tolerances be set for unavoidable poisonous substances. Authorized factory inspections. 1962 Thalidomide, a new sleeping pill, is found to have caused birth defects in thousands of babies born in western Europe. Kefauver-Harris Drug Amendments passed to ensure drug efficacy and greater drug safety. For the first time, drug manufacturers are required to prove to FDA the effectiveness of their products before marketing them. The new law also exempts from the Delaney proviso animal drugs and animal feed additives shown to induce cancer but which leave no detectable levels of residue in the human food supply.

Clinical Protocols (cont.):  Trial design; single or multi-center study, open label, single- or double-blind, single arm or a controlled study, whether subjects are randomized or not to assigned treatments for comparison, etc. Well defined eligibility criteria, appropriate for the phase of development, with meticulous consideration related to the balance of risks and benefits, existence of alternative therapies and other considerations. Specific risk factors need to be taken into consideration that either significantly limit the potential benefit or endanger the subject. Clinical Protocols (cont.) Clinical Protocols (cont.):  Clinical Protocols (cont.) Specific and clear criteria defining the groups of subjects to be enrolled in the study. For each group clear criteria for each and the specific treatment regimen for each should be stated. Adequate safety monitoring and adequate monitoring of the parameters of bioactivity. Appropriate stopping rules should be established. For phase II and III trials additional complexity in trial design and implementation will be needed to ensure that the data produced are of sufficient reliability to be serve as the “substantial evidence” required for market approval, such as pre-specified endpoints and a statistical plan for endpoint analyses in their protocols.

It stipulated membership should include medical, nursing and lay-public and that research protocols should be reviewed & approved prior to conducting experiments 1974 National Research Act: requires IRB review and approval of all research involving human subjects 1981 HHS amended the policy to provide a framework within which IRBs would function Current Expectations are Codified (21 CFR Part 56) Biologics Control Act of 1902 Still True:  Biologics Control Act of 1902 Still True “Although the preventive and curative powers of viruses, serums, toxins, antitoxins, and analogous products has long since been established, certain unfortunate accidents, notably those which recently occurred in St. Louis, Mo., have tended to discredit their use. The extreme value of the preparations in preventing and curing disease renders it of prime importance, therefore, that action be taken to preserve the confidence of the medical profession and of the community generally in them.” “Do not tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.”:  “Do not tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.” -General George S. Patton War As I Knew It [1947] pt.
