Enhancing Confidence in AD Clinical Trial Outcomes: How Composite Measures and In-Study Quality Programs Can Help Achieve the Goal, Live Webinar Presented by Bracket and Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 25, 2014) - In this webinar, the challenge of and need for developing more sensitive clinical outcomes in Alzheimer's disease (AD) clinical trials, and ensuring that they are administered and scored properly will be presented. The development of one such composite will be discussed. The live broadcast will take place on Thursday, December 11, 2014 at 11am EST (4pm GMT).

Clinical trials targeting Alzheimer's disease are frequently long and require raters to administer and score many instruments. Some of these instruments have complex scoring conventions which must be memorized and understood, while others have specific administration guidelines regarding the acceptability of patient prompts and other spontaneous verbal communications with subjects. Raters must be experienced with the dementia population and with the individual instruments specified for use in the protocol.

Join esteemed speakers Veronika Logovinsky, Executive Director at Eisai Inc., Neuroscience & General Medicine, and David Miller, Clinical Vice President at Bracket, as they provide real-world examples from recent and on-going AD clinical trials where data quality programs were employed will be presented.

Key takeaways from this webinar:

  • Fundamental challenges associated with clinical endpoints in AD trials
  • The rationale behind the development and use of composite measures
  • Which remediation techniques can improve outcomes with these endpoints
