Now, let's define “drug sponsor.” For the purpose of this article, a drug sponsor is the entity responsible for collecting all the information about a new animal drug and submitting this information to CVM for review.
Who can be a drug sponsor? Any organization, or even one person, can be a drug sponsor. For example, scientific research groups; government agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture; and academic organizations, such as colleges and universities, can all be drug sponsors. But typically, drug sponsors are pharmaceutical companies.
Together, CVM and the sponsor guide the drug through the approval process.
