CIOMS Glossary of ICH terms and definitions now available

The Council for International Organizations of Medical Sciences (CIOMS) has recently released a glossary of terms and definitions taken from the publicly available guidelines of the International Council for Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH), as a service to their followers and the ICH stakeholders, among other parties. The ICH Quality, Safety, Efficacy and Multidisciplinary guidelines reflect an international consensus on the scientific and technical aspects of drug registration.

To produce this resource, the CIOMS has reviewed 121 ICH guidelines and Q&A documents posted on the ICH website. They found a total of 1080 definitions, which are shown alphabetically in the glossary along with their ICH guideline number, title, and where the definition was found.

The Glossary of ICH terms and definitions is freely available for download here.
