First-in-human clinical trial (FIH)

First-in-human trials are a key step in medicines development, where a medicine already tested in vitro, in animals or in other preclinical studies is administered to people for the first time. Participants in these trials, often healthy volunteers, face an element of risk as the ability of researchers to predict the effects of a new medicine on people is limited before it is actually studied in humans.
