ADNCA is the dataset used for Non-Compartmental Analysis, NCA. This is where the Pharmacokinetics (PK) parameters are created by the scientists. Parameter creation utilizes software with certain dataset requirements and existing BDS and/or SDTM structures do not meet requirements. Prior to ADNCA, it meant submissions contained interim datasets configured as needed for the software without guidance as to structure; thereby resulting in many different dataset structures. ADNCA provides such guidance and standardizes this part of the PK process. ADNCA has completed the public review.
