Strategies for Achieving Regulatory Milestones Faster19 April 2023
Learn how choosing an integrated service provider can help to accelerate your drug development timeline, featuring a customer case study presented by Ensysce Biosciences CEO, Lynn Kirkpatrick.
As the pharma and biotech industry looks to make drug development more efficient to achieve regulatory milestones faster, the outsourcing services sector has scaled to meet demand. In doing so, drug development activities have spread across multiple service vendors, creating siloes. In this presentation, Dr. Vanessa Zann, Senior Drug Development Consultant, and Lynn Kirkpatrick, CEO of Ensysce Biosciences, discuss the benefits of Quotient Sciences Translational Pharmaceutics® integrated drug development platform for decreasing the complexity of drug development for sponsors by providing integrated services under a single company.
Ensysce Biosciences' PF614-MPAR is a novel opioid combination product for the potential treatment of chronic pain that is designed to prevent both abuse and overdose. It is currently in Phase I trials. Quotient Sciences has supported Ensysce Biosciences with an integrated formulation development and Phase I clinical study program for PF614.
In this presentation, Lynn Kirkpatrick, CEO of Ensysce Biosciences, discusses the reasons why Quotient Sciences was selected as an outsourcing partner. She highlights her company's experience working with Quotient Sciences, and how the Quotient Sciences Translational Pharmaceutics platform for integrated drug development is being used for their program.
- How the Quotient Sciences Translational Pharmaceutics platform has accelerated Ensysce Biosciences' drug development timeline and what Ensysce hopes to achieve next through their partnership with Quotient Sciences
- How drug product formulations and doses can be adjusted and manufactured in real-time, often in response to emerging human data
- How the integration of drug substance, drug product & clinical testing activities under one organization can encourage close relationships between multidisciplinary experts and create a more agile approach to pharmaceutical development, which ultimately accelerates timelines towards IND and onwards to proof-of-concept.
