In this webinar esteemed speakers Marc Buyse, Founder of IDDI, and Linda Danielson, Chief Operating Officer for IDDI, will discuss today’s operational challenges in adaptive trials:

The needs:

  •     to validate the design through simulations,
  •     to control the trial centrally,
  •     to collect and analyze key data rapidly,
  •     to preserve the trial blinding and integrity,
  •     and to document all important adaptive decisions taken.

These challenges will be illustrated using an actual phase I trial in oncology, and the speakers will argue that the issues can be addressed through:

  •     proper planning,
  •     choice of experienced vendors and independent groups (coordinating center and DSMB),
  •     statistical teams with adequate expertise and experience with the design chosen,
  •     recourse to efficient computer technology (IWRS, EDC, automated emailing),
  •     and oversight by a specialized team.

Finally, issues specific to the design of pivotal trials for registration will be addressed. A Q&A with the audience will follow the main presentation.
