Prototype devices

It is recognized that a manufacturer may wish to submit a small number  of "prototype models" of a device to clinical investigation in order to assess safety and/or performance; and those such prototypes may need to undergo a number of changes prior to large-scale production.

Dear Colleagues,
For Authors
GCP focus welcomes articles from Clinical Research Professionals from Hospitals, Industry and Academia.
Most articles in the GCP focus are about the methods and process of clinical research. We generally do not publish articles on the therapeutic results of clinical trials. Your article should offer practical advice for Clinical Research or Good Clinical Practices.
We have no hard-and-fast rules about article length. All articles must be strictly non-promotional in content. They should not have been published elsewhere, or have been submitted concurrently to any other journal or website.
If you have already written your article, please send it in. We will work with you to make the article outstanding. There is no specific deadline for submissions. There are no issue themes. Articles are typically published after receipt. Timing depends on the editorial process, other articles ready for publication, and composition of each issue.
The GCP HelpDesk neither pays for articles nor charges authors for publication.
