First human Intra-Target Microdosing (ITM) study demonstrating the feasibility of the approach in detecting pharmacodynamic and proof-of-mechanism effects in targets of interest by administering a microdose directly to the target. Also demonstrating the utility of control contralateral measurement in modeling extrapolation over the microdose vs. therapeutic-level range.

This article is a practical guide into Phase-0 approaches. It emphasizes the importance of initiating planning in advance (1.5.-2 years prior to IND) in order to make full use of the potential of these approaches. It also includes the first economic analysis on the impact of microdosing on the patent life of back-up compounds.

This is a meta-analysis of 35 studies that included exposures to microdose and therapeutic-level doses. It demonstrates that nearly 80% of drugs administered orally at microdose will extrapolate linearly to therapeutic level exposures. It also demonstrates that if administered IV 100% of the drugs studies extrapolate linearly to therapeutic level exposures.

This is the first publication of a randomized withdrawal design in major depression. The reason for the design was the wish to have patients stay as little as possible on placebo when symptomatic. Patients on placebo experiencing withdrawal (i.e., resurgence of depressive symptoms) were withdrawn from the study. They were then given standard treatment. The withdrawal event was the primary outcome.
