JHU Animal Facilities comply with PHS policy and USDA regulations to ensure the responsible use of animals for research. Many of our researchers are working to develop new and cutting edge drugs and devices that have the potential to improve clinical care and may have plans to eventually seek approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to test such drugs or devices in humans. The FDA requires that sponsors of Investigational New Drug applications or Investigational Device Exemptions who submit animal data in support of their applications verify that the animal studies were carried out in accordance with Good Laboratory Practice ("GLP") regulations outlined at 21 CFR Part 58. These regulations include a number of specific requirements that are best suited to testing laboratories specifically set up to conduct GLP studies. At the present time, JHU animal facilities are not compliant with all aspects of GLP regulations, and studies conducted in our animal facilities cannot be represented as GLP. If you have questions about this policy or are planning an animal study with the potential of applying for FDA approval, please contact the RAR Director at 410-955-3273.
