Regulation of the Discovery, Development and Supply of New Drugs: Lessons for Medicine

  • William M. Wardell


In view of the diverse interests represented in the subject of this meeting, the opening speaker should, I suppose, deal with aspects of regulation that affect all branches of medicine in its broadest sense. So, I shall use my own special field of interest (the process of drug development and its regulation) as a model for considering regulatory influences on medicine as a whole. There are some special features of the drug development process that will help to illuminate regulatory influences on all fields of medicine.
