The same drug substance should be used throughout the development program.

Is this okay? I think that this is more appropriate:

The same drug substance should be used throughout the course of the development program.

My intended meaning is: the same drug substance should be used consistently from the first day of the program to the last day. I want to emphasize this "time course" sense. Would sentence 1 manage to convey this "duration & consistency" sense?

I think that your first sentence

The same drug substance should be used throughout the development program.

is more approriate, because throughout suffices to convey the meaning of "duration & consistency" as it means during the whole course or period.

  • This is interesting. I was positive that "throughout" would not suffice, and posted the question just to make sure. Thank you, Christina – CowperKettle Jan 18 '17 at 9:53
