Program Topic:

The Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) Standard for the Exchange of Nonclinical Data (SEND) provides the structure and implementation rules for the submission of nonclinical study datasets to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As the result of collaboration between stakeholders, including FDA and Sponsors, SEND continues to evolve, and implementation guides continue to add more domains to the standard. The implementation of SEND has a major impact on the industry, as these standards are required for all sponsors wishing to submit nonclinical data to the FDA. Failure to comply with SEND standards may result in rejection of the submission.  Implementing SEND requires support from professionals in several disciplines including Toxicology, IT, Regulatory Affairs, and project team scientists.

Despite being a requirement for submission of IND and NDA, many Sponsors have limited knowledge and resources to prepare, complete, or verify the SEND datasets. This presentation is designed for a broad audience and covers: SEND history and timeline, basic understanding of SEND, what studies require SEND, SEND domains, current state of SEND implementation guide, most frequent issues with SEND data preparation, and the upcoming additions.
