Pharmacoepidemology Preclinical studies, clinical trials, post-marketing studies: what are durations?
Hello, everyone! Do you have any idea about duration of preclinical studies, clinical trials, post-marketing studies?
Hi! Very interesting question! It seems to me that it strongly depends on the type of medication and on the disease that the drug is aimed at combating. As far as I know, clinical trials usually last for several years, and from the moment of the first experiments to the release of a drug on the market, it usually takes at least 5 years.
@marie-curie do you have any reviews, papers or any sources about that?
