Dear ElMaestro,

» » OK, maybe if the product has a very low variability and the number of subjects remains very low, it could make sense and save time to directly go for the pivotal. Any experience ?

» Yes absolutely. The majority of dossiers are being accepted without pilot trials.

Sure, when you only have one test formulation. But when you hesitate between two ? Would you directly go for a pivotal where both test formulations would be compared to the reference, and then file whichever one passes ?
