Abstract

Phase 1 trials are primarily designed to accumulate short-term safety (toxicity) and pharmacological data. Although preliminary efficacy may be addressed ("proof of concept" efficacy), it is a secondary endpoint. The numbers of patients are small, the numbers of patients receiving efficacious doses are very small, and controls are absent. Evaluation of efficacy and of long-term toxicity requires longer, larger, and controlled studies.
