Advancing Expansion

The UK has significant experience in first-in-human (FIH) clinical trials and has performed almost a quarter of the total of 2,206 FIH studies in the EU between 2005 and 2017 (Figure 1). Furthermore, the number of FIH trials conducted in the UK continues to increase; 69 out of 143 (48%) Phase 1 trials in 2016 were FIH, whereas, in 2017, this number grew to 105 out of 167 (63%) (1). The collective experience of regulators, clinical Phase 1 units, and FIH principal investigators in the last couple of decades has played a significant role in the development of guidelines for FIH/early phase clinical trials. However, two events come to the forefront of any early clinical developer’s mind in relation to the guidance issued by the EMA in this area.

Time lapse photography to demonstrate the potential antimicrobial abilities of Dycem contamination control flooring

Dycem

A defined volume of bioluminescent reporter bacteria was deposited onto 20 mm x 20 mm coupons of Dycem flooring, vinyl tile and ITW Alma tacky mat. Through monitoring of bacterial bioluminescence, metabolic inhibition was observed on all three surfaces however the effect occurred more rapidly on Dycem flooring than on vinyl or ITW Alma. Recovery counts after three hours of exposure to the floor surfaces showed between a 65% and 100% decrease in the number of viable organisms recovered from Dycem flooring compared to controls. On vinyl and ITW Alma flooring, there were slight increases in the number of viable survivors recovered compared to controls. Dycem flooring inhibited the metabolic activity and reduced the number of viable survivors recovered of Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium DT104 pGLITE. It remains unclear as to whether this effect is attributable to the impregnated biocide or rapid drying of the inoculum on this surface.
