Drug development may be defined as the series of specialized events performed to satisfy internal (i.e., competitive industry benchmarks) and external (i.e., regulatory compliance) criteria, to yield a novel drug. Much attention has been given to the various activities of drug development. The combined vision and depth of knowledge has had a profound effect on the pharmaceutical industry, helping to promote a greater understanding of technology and to develop new strategies for discovering novel lead candidates.
