Dose Finding in Drug Development
by Naitee Ting

Dose Finding in Drug Development is based on discussion between the pharmaceutical manufacturer and the drug regulatory agency, and the label is a summary of results obtained from many scientific experiments.

Dose Finding in Drug Development introduces the drug development process, the design and the analysis of clinical trials.
