Introducing a drug into the human body for the first time is an important milestone. Considerable investment goes into preparing for this day, with more to follow — 70% of the R&D cost needed to bring a drug to market is spent after Phase I. With so much at stake, human safety and early efficacy are now driving more go/no-go decisions than ever before.
