Regulatory Reform in Local Clinical Trial Bridging Study Before An approved local clinical trial study report is required for the new drug application in Taiwan --July 7 Announcement in 1993. Disadvantage: - A sample size of 40 as required would be difficult to demonstrate significant importance clinically or statistically - The study design of the local trial usually only repeated a study that has been done in the foreign countries but in a smaller sample size The study has not been designed based on the Regulatory Reform in Local Clinical Trial Bridging Study After

Bridging Study (Double Twelve Announcement, 2000) -Follow ICH E5 guidance Advantage: - To avoid repeating unnecessary clinical study - Conducting, necessary, meaningful clinical study based on differences of disease, ethnic differences etc, and the results of study, a dosage adjustment can be done for the locals Strategies for Implementation of Bridging Study To follow closely the spirit of the ICH E5

guidance To establish a sound and practical consultation and evaluation process encourage sponsor to submit complete clinical data package for the evaluation of bridging study before new drug application guidance and Q & A data base self-evaluation checking list consultation process assessment scheme Double Twelve Announcement for Bridging Studies Dec. 12, 2000 Effective on January 1, 2001 One-year of transition period

-Local clinical trial bridging study In accordance with ICH E5 guidance Procedure of consultation and evaluation of bridging study Considerations for Assessing the Necessity of a Bridging Study ( 1of 4 ) Submit relevant documents Does the drug meet DOH requirements for waiving YES according to DOH a bridging study and also the criteria for exempting requirements and request submission of information for ethnic consideration?(1) for waiving bridging studies NO Does the submitted preclinical and clinical data package meet the regulatory requirements (ICH E5 and DOH guidance on clinical trials)?(2) NO

Amendment YES NO Does the package include clinical data of Asian populations?(3) Is the medicine insensitive to both intrinsic and extrinsic factors? efficacy and safety insignificant? (See ICH E5 guidelines) YES YES NO Considerations for Assessing the Necessity of a Bridging Study

( 2 of 4 ) Does the package include clinical data of Asian populations?(3) NO YES YES Have any early phase trials or global clinical trials that meet the YES DOH requirements of bridging studies been conducted in Taiwan? NO Is it reasonable to extrapolate from foreign clinical data that the medicine is insensitive to both intrinsic and extrinsic factors in Asians(3) and that its clinical differences in efficacy and safety are acceptable?(See ICH E5 guidelines)

NO Is the medicine insensitive to both intrinsic and extrinsic factors? Are the clinical differences in efficacy and safety insignificant? (See ICH E5 guidelines) No bridging study required(4) NO Based on the result of evaluation, an appropriately designed protocol of a bridging study should be submitted to DOH for approval(5) YES No bridging study required(4) Considerations for Assessing the Necessity of a Bridgi

ng Study ( 3 of 4 ) Is it reasonable to extrapolate from foreign clinical data that the medicine is insensitive to both intrinsic and extrinsic factors in Asians(3) and that its clinical differences in efficacy and safety are acceptable?(See ICH E5 guidelines) YES No bridging study required(4) NO Is it reasonable to extrapolate from foreign clinical data that the concentration (dose)-response relationship is similar between foreign and Asian populations(3)? NO Is PK and/or PD data of Asian

populations(3) available for estimating dosage or predicting efficacy? YES NO YES Based on the result of evaluation, an appropriately designed protocol of a bridging study should be submitted to DOH for approval.(5) Considerations for Assessing the Necessity of a Bridgi ng Study ( 4 of 4 ) Is PK and/or PD data of Asian populations(3) available for estimating dosage or predicting efficacy? YES

NO Based on the result of evaluation, an appropriately designed protocol of a bridging study should be submitted to DOH for approval.(5) Using available data for dose determination Apply for waiving bridging studies with reference to DOH announcements of waiving clinical trials. If the drug falls within the category that requires submission of information proving no e xistence of ethnic differences, it should be evaluated following this flowchart after the one year phase-in period. (2) Under circumstances when evidence indicating potential intrinsic/extrinsic differences betwee n Chinese and other Asian populations, a bridging study in Chinese population is a must. (3) A bridging study will be required when there exists any safety concern. (4) 1 Under circumstances when evidence indicating potential intrinsic/extrinsic differences betwe en Chinese and other Asian populations, a bridging study in Chinese population is a must.

(5) A bridging study can be a PK and/or PD study or any clinical study that can demonstrate the efficacy and safety of the medicine. (1) Bridging Study Evaluation --Current Status-18 8 7 No.of Bridging Study Evaluation Applications in 2001 6 5 5 4 3 3

Impact of Bridging Study on Clinical Trials Promoting early phase / global clinical trials in Taiwan Conducting necessary, meaningful clinical study based on scientific and medical circumstances (intrinsic/ extrinsic factors)

Establish Network of Pharmaceutical Regulatory Science - APEC Joint Research Project Objectives: To establish an APEC network of pharmaceutical regulatory science To promote regulatory consensus through regional educational seminar, or APEC conference To develop a sound and practical methodology for implementing bridging study in accordance with ICH E5 by APEC members for the global new drug development Establish Network of Pharmaceutical Regulatory Science - APEC Joint Research Project 1999 At the 17th APEC ISTWG Meeting, all of the APEC economies have reached consensus on this project proposed and sponsored by Chinese Taipei and co-sponsored by Singapore, Philippines, Mexico, Malaysia,

and Australia. 2000 The 1st workshop was held in Taipei. 2001 The 2001 symposium was held in Taipei. The 2001 Symposium on APEC Network of Pharmaceutical Regulatory Science- APEC Joint Research Project on Bridging Study Conclusion(1) 1. Bridging justification should be based on sound science and intrinsic /extrinsic factors, not based on citizenship and nationality. 2. The regulatory agency should consider existing data and various factors (scientific and medical

circumstances ) for drug approval. 3. Criteria for the similarity of efficacy,safety and quality between regions is needed. The 2001 Symposium on APEC Network of Pharmaceutical Regulatory Science- APEC Joint Research Project on Bridging Study Conclusion(2) 4. Bridging: Multi-directional Input and output between ICH/ Non ICH region should be involved 5. ICH E5- Identifying the questions from APEC region, elaboration/supplement is needed. 6. Consolidate the networking of pharmaceutical regulatory science within APEC is obviously.
