|Incorporating Adaptive Trial Design Approaches in Oncology Clinical Trials|
|Event Date: November 15, 2012 at 11:00 AM EST|
This webinar will analyze the incorporation of adaptive trial design in oncology trials, assessing the early decision making benefits that are critical to the decreasing drug development time and providing increased benefit to patients. Adaptive trial design is critical in all phases of oncology drug development and helps overcome many of the hurdles of traditional study design.
Join PPD’s Dirk Reitsma , M.D., Vice President, Global Product Development and Niklas Morton, Vice President, Global Biostatistics and Programming for an engaging and thought provoking look at the next generation of oncology clinical research. They will be joined by Scott Berry, Ph.D., President and Senior Statistical Scientist with Berry Consultants to discuss the statistical component of adaptive trial design and how it can benefit clinical trials.
Overview of main topics:
- Learn how the challenges of traditional trial design will impact oncology trials and how adaptive trial design will help mitigate many of these issues, leading to more timely and effective research in this field
- Why Bayesian statistics plays a critical role in adaptive trial design
- How adaptive trial design can be incorporated in all phases of oncology research from design hurdles in phase I studies to overcoming high failure rates of phase III trials
- Learn how the early decision making benefits of adaptive trial design can lead to a faster go/no-go conclusion to save time and decrease costs
