Investigator Initiated Trials

As part of medac’s philosophy Investigator Initiated Trials (IITs) are recognized as a pivotal pillar of driving medical research and as an important aspect to contribute towards enhancing understanding of medac’s products and their therapeutic value. Hence, medac is looking forward to receiving and evaluating your proposal and to enter discussion about possible support.


At medac we define Investigator Initiated Trials as unsolicited research initiated, developed and sponsored by independent/non-pharmaceutical researchers. An IIT is a clinical or non-clinical study performed without the involvement of medac, for which the IIT sponsor is responsible for understanding and complying with any and all regulatory requirements related to the research conducted. The IIT sponsor requests medac to provide either funding, drug product (provided as finished medicinal product) or both pursuant to a written agreement. All studies supported by medac must be registered at or or other accessible databases.

medac does not serve as the regulatory sponsor for IITs. The study sponsor has complete responsibility for study conception, design, operational execution, data handling, data analysis and evaluation, subsequent reporting, and ensuring compliance with all local laws and regulations.
