Upcoming and Past Events
On October 27, Dr. Kush Dhody, Senior Vice President of Clinical Operations, conducted the webinar Oncology Clinical Trials: An Emerging Paradigm Shift in Trial Design. The recording of this webinar is now available.
Cancer treatments are fulfilling the promises of personalized medicine. One aspect is the use of biomarkers detectable in blood such as circulating tumor cells. This webinar reviews several newer clinical trial strategies such as combining adaptive trial designs with innovative endpoints; and umbrella or basket designs that allow multiple drugs to be tested against a cancer in a single trial, or a single drug to be tested against multiple cancer types in a single trial. Dr. Dhody also discusses the challenges of interpreting traditional survival analysis methods in this era of personalized cancer immunotherapies.
