Clinical Trial of an Investigational Medicinal Product (CTIMP) Research Projects

A major part of Newcastle Clinical Trials Unit’s portfolio is interventional drug trials, otherwise known as Clinical Trials of Investigational Medicinal Products (CTIMPs), from Phase I to Phase III, funded variously by industry, NIHR, research councils and medical charities. These include both placebo-controlled trials, and head-to-head trials of two or more drugs. Also included in this category are trials of Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (gene therapy medicinal products, somatic cell therapy products and tissue engineered products).
