Clinical Research ::

This department focuses on clinical pharmacokinetics, Phase III and IV clinical studies, bio-equivalence studies for generic drugs.

The Unit has two independent functions namely :

  • Planning & execution of Phase- III & IV studies,
  • Clinical pharmacokinetic studies.

Major Functions :

Marketing of a new drug in India, requires a Clinical trial in an appropriate patients population to establish safety & efficacy and Bio-equivalence study; comparing the bio-availability of test formulation with reference i.e. innovator's formulation in healthy volunteers.

The unit identifies unmet medical needs and strives to find out a suitable intervention; be it a drug formulation or a device. Presently, regulatory activities for filing for domestic market dominate majority of the work. This comprises of Phase III & Phase IV Clinical trials. Clinical Research being the last portal for a drug going to the regulatory authorities and ultimately to the market, reviews all the evidences for its safety and efficacy, before submission.

New Products Selection & Development in :

  • Liaison with Marketing Division
  • Liaison internally with R&D Divisions
  • Liaison with Collaborators

Studies :

  • Phase III & Phase IV Clinical Trials

Regulatory Affairs :

  • Pre-Marketing / Marketing / Post Marketing

Training / Promotional Activities :

  • Field Staff Training / Clinical Symposia / Work Shop / Panel Discussions

Achievements :

As a part of Domestic / International Regulatory requirements, Clinical Research has conducted clinical trials of several molecules including Nocorandil, Repaglinide, Rosiglitazone, Clopidogrel & Sildenafil in the recent past.

Major functions :

The distinct function of the unit is:

  • Comparative Bio-availability Studies for Known Molecular Entities

Achievements :

Since the time of its inception, the unit has conducted 38 (12 / 24 volunteers) pharmacokinetic studies. In these studies, a comparative bioavailability of Torrent's formulation (Test) was measured against Innovator's brand (Reference). These studies have been used for domestic as well as international regulatory submissions.
