If a target organ has been identified are there any surrogate markers of toxicity that could be measured in man? • Toxicokinetics Measurement of plasma (or serum) concentrations of drug in the animal studies is essential if one is to interpret the safety and pharmacological studies and relate those results to the predicted effects in man. By comparing the drug concentrations required to achieve the desired pharmacological response in the in-vivo pharmacology studies with the concentrations associated with unwanted effects in the safety pharmacology and toxicology studies, a therapeutic index can be defined.

Carcinogenicity study results are generally required prior to marketing, and would only be completed prior to Phase III trials if there was special concern. • Reproductive toxicity These studies investigate the effect of the drug on fertility, reproductive performance, foetal organogenesis, and periand post-natal development. Studies should be in mammals, and are usually performed in the rat. In addition, embryo-foetal development studies (which include teratology studies) are conducted in a non-rodent species, usually the rabbit.
