Written and edited by experts from different sectors actively engaged in CNS drug development, this is a unique resource for drug developers, investigators, academics and clinicians.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The experienced authors admirably describe the art and skills of managing the constraints of recruitment criteria, prioritising participant welfare, and balancing budgetary concerns ... The volume can be recommended for the libraries of senior investigators who are training the next generation as a stimulus in the supervisory process. The text also offers a springboard for discussions among policy makers themselves, hopefully promoting an insight that they are overdue in their effort to overhaul a system nearly imploding under ponderous, regulatory, protectionistic, and, unfortunately, often minimally scientific burdens of multiple financial and other interests. The brief format is highly readable, more concise than comprehensive in scope, providing more of an overview of the issues than would be expected from a formal reference text ... Overall, the editors offer a timely discussion of many strengths and weaknesses of a highly regulated and cumbersome process.' Ronald M. Salomon, Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
