English translation:A course of drugs which are used before taking another drug
Explanation:
You take a bridging drug, maybe a drug which is a milder dose to help your body build up to be able to handle a stronger drug, "A bridging drug"
If you were to take the stronger drug straight up the side effects would be too much for the body to handle.
The "subject" here is referring to the Patient. "for the subject to bridge"
for the patient to take to build up a tolerance to or a immunity to.
