Post-IND Maintenance

With extensive experience of regulatory services, Creative Biolabs provides pre-IND meeting, IND publishing and submission to help gain IND approval to facilitate clinical trials of your drug candidate. In addition, we also offer post-IND services to help maintain your IND in compliance with specific regulations of agencies.


To maintain an IND, three timeline-sensitive reports are essential (see Fig.1). For IND amendments and safety reports, they need to be submitted in the event of updates or unpredictability. For annual report, it should be submitted every year, even if no studies are under progress under the IND. All submissions need to be sent to the address provided in the IND acknowledgement letter in response to the first submission.
