Xtalks Life Science Webinars

This webinar will explore the promise and challenges associated with the planning and execution of rare cancer trials including patient access, biomarker testing requirements, selecting the right endpoints, alternative study designs accounting for small sample size, and the regulatory landscape.

Join Rupa Doshi, PhD, Executive Director – Program Strategy, Oncology, Premier Research and Sameena Sharif, PhD, Senior Vice President, Product Strategy, Premier Research in a live webinar on Monday, August 24, 2020 at 11am EDT (4pm BST/UK).

Rare cancers account for 22 percent of cancer diagnoses worldwide, yet there is no universally accepted definition for a “rare” cancer. Moreover, with the evolution of genomics and associated changes in categorizing tumors, some common cancers are now characterized into groups of rare cancers, each with a unique implication for patient management and therapy.

This shifting paradigm may well underestimate the incidence of rare cancers, and further underscores the need for innovative approaches in developing new therapies. This webinar will explore the promise and challenges associated with the planning and execution of rare cancer trials including patient access, biomarker testing requirements, selecting the right endpoints, alternative study designs accounting for small sample size, and the regulatory landscape.
