Best Practices for Clinical Development of Immunotherapies, Live Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Experts to Share Extensive Experience From Pivitol Immunocology Clinical Studies

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 27, 2015) - Explore the growing field of immuno-oncology, including the competitive landscape and best practices for the clinical development of immunotherapies, during a webinar hosted by Xtalks.

Recent advances in immuno-oncology, including the launch of immune checkpoint inhibitors, have demonstrated the potential to greatly improve treatment outcomes for patients with hard-to-treat diseases, such as metastatic melanoma and non-small cell lung cancer. However, the evolving landscape can pose unique challenges for biopharmaceutical sponsors.

Experts from inVentiv Health will explore the obstacles and nuances of this rapidly growing field during a free, one-hour webinar on November 4 beginning at 11 am EST / 4 pm GMT (UK) / 5 pm CET (EU-Central). inVentiv Health, a top-tier professional services organization, has supported about 80 percent of all oncology drugs approved by the FDA in recent years. In the area of advanced oncology therapies, they have worked on clinical programs and commercialization for all immuno-onocolgy products approved by the FDA.

This webinar will summarize key aspects of evaluating safety and efficacy in studies of immune checkpoint inhibitors, as well as describe operational strategies that support successful trial execution and regulatory approval. The panel will also present medical and operational lessons learned from past immuno-oncology trials, along with an assessment of the current pipeline of immunotherapy agents and the coming market trends.
