Improving Predictability of Food-Drug and Drug-Drug Interaction Risks by Utilizing In Vitro Simulated Gastrointestinal Dissolution Model for High-Risk Oral Drug Products (U01) Clinical Trial Optional
Food and Drug Administration
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is offering a federal grant opportunity titled "Improving Predictability of Food-Drug and Drug-Drug Interaction Risks by Utilizing In Vitro Simulated Gastrointestinal Dissolution Model for High-Risk Oral Drug Products (U01) Clinical Trial Optional". This funding opportunity falls under the category of Consumer Protection and is a Cooperative Agreement type of funding instrument. The grant does not require cost sharing or matching. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to examine the utility of an in vitro simulated gastrointestinal (GI) dissolution model for the assessment of in vitro performance of amorphous solid dispersion (ASD) drug products under different clinically relevant conditions. The goal is to develop and validate the in vitro mechanistic methodology to provide an improved understanding of the impact of food and acid reducing agents on the absorption for test and reference listed drug (RLD) drug products, taking into consideration their potentially different formulations and manufacturing. The bio predictive in vitro mechanistic methodology is intended to correlate the in vitro observations to in vivo outcomes, help define types of in vivo bioequivalence (BE) studies needed for ASD drug products, and inform regulatory decision-making related to mitigating the risk of potential failure modes for therapeutic equivalence for high-risk generic oral drug products. The grant has an award ceiling of $500,000 and an award floor of $250,000. It is expected that there will be 2 awards given. The eligible applicants for this grant opportunity are unrestricted, meaning any applicant organization may submit an application. However, each application must be scientifically distinct. The FDA will not accept duplicate or highly overlapping applications under review at the same time. For more information and to apply for this grant opportunity, you can contact Terrin Brown, the Grantor, at terrin.brown@fda.hhs.gov or (240) 402-7610. The last updated date for this grant opportunity is November 30, 2023.
