Summary Metrics of Drug Development Tool Qualification Projects Submitted to FDA

These tables provide the current number of Drug Development Tool (DDT) projects grouped overall, by Program, and DDT stage. Please note, the stage of the DDT is determined by the last submission accepted by the FDA (Letter of Intent, Qualification Plan, Full Qualification Package). For example, if a requestor’s Letter of Intent (LOI) was accepted into the qualification program, the DDT is in the LOI stage as the requestor works toward the Qualification Plan. The numbers in the tables are not meant to be summative.

The tables are updated and reported on a biannual (twice a year) basis. Refer to DDT Contacts and Submitting Procedures for contact information for each DDT Program.
