Criteria for 'go/no-go' decisions

Compounds under investigation as potential new medicines must meet certain criteria, at each stage of development, in order to progress further. These criteria need to be agreed upon by the medicines developers. A ˜go™ decision means that the compound meets the criteria, and will be advanced to the next development step. Failure to meet the criteria will lead to a ˜no-go™ decision and the medicine development will stop.
