Adaptive Trial Design in Clinical Trials: What You Need to Know, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 21, 2015) - The featured speakers -- Cheng Gang Greg Wei, Ph.D., Research Fellow, SynteractHCR and Zoran Antonijevic, Senior Director, Strategic Consulting, Cytel, Chair of the Adaptive Design Scientific Working Group at DIA -- will address the components that go into the design, simulation and clinical execution services for adaptive trials. Attendees will learn how to reduce cycle times and late stage attrition rates while managing the ethical considerations that are at the heart of everything. The live broadcast takes place on Thursday, June 4, 2015 at 1pm EDT.

In the quest to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of clinical trials, adaptive design methods have arisen, with support from the FDA. Adaptive trial designs use accumulating data to modify trials under progress without undermining the integrity of the trials. They allow sponsors to adjust certain parameters such as dosage, subject population, or sample size in consideration of statistically significant safety or efficacy data.

The goals are to accelerate clinical development and improve its efficiency, better target experimental drugs to responsive patient groups, and reduce the number of patients exposed to inappropriate or ineffective therapies. According to recent studies that have addressed the topic, adaptive trials save three months in trial duration on average but may save up to a year in the trial process.
