Technology The platform or technologic approach upon which a treatment is based; either chemically synthesized like a small molecule or polymer drug, or biologic like a protein, antibody, or cell therapy.
Pre-Clinical

Pre-Clinical testing conducted in the lab and on animals to investigate a treatment’s ability to fight against a targeted disease and to demonstrate safety.

Phase I Clinical trials on small number of human subjects, usually healthy, primarily to assess safety and potential side effects at different dosages.
Phase II Clinical trials on affected patients, primarily to test efficacy; usually randomized and placebo-controlled.
Phase III Clinical trials on affected patients to further test efficacy, benefits, and potential side effects; usually randomized, placebo-controlled, and blinded.
