There are different interpretations across FDA divisions, she noted, and sometimes between reviewers within the same division, of how to apply the Animal Rule. Second, appropriate review of MCMs based on risk and benefit is needed. These are high-risk, life-threatening diseases, about which clinical knowledge is often limited. Third, Leffel noted, there is a need for precompetitive mechanisms to share basic animal model information quickly. , for NIAIDsponsored studies, information on basic models for vaccine studies is available in cross-referenced master files for sponsors).

What makes a good animal model is highly dependent on the research question, he said. One must consider, for example, whether there is similar pathophysiology as the human disease or similar mediators of immune protection. For product development, are there well-defined generic animal models or platforms that could be used? Most of the time, Lyons said, researchers are working with a nonvalidated surrogate that is “reasonably likely” to predict clinical efficacy. Lyons opined that it is unlikely one species model will reflect human disease adequately and suggested a compartmentalization strategy, pooling data from several species models.
