The Importance of Site Selection and Dosing Strategies in Early-Phase Oncology Studies

TORONTO (PRWEB) NOVEMBER 02, 2020 Setting up an effective phase 1 trial for a novel investigational oncology product is rife with challenges. Every aspect, from site identification to estimation and coordination of enrollment and safety review, is interrelated to ensure a timely dose determination that is nimble and allows flexibility. What factors can affect, or...

Tumor-Agnostic Treatments: A Game Changer for Rare Oncology Trials

Rare cancers account for almost a quarter of all new cancers worldwide though there is no universally adopted definition for rare cancers. In the U.S., rare cancers are defined as those with fewer than 15 cases per 100,000 per year, whereas in the EU, they are defined as six cases per 100,000 per year. Historically,...

Regulatory Challenges in Global CAR-T Cell Therapy Development

When exploring the complex and rigorous regulatory landscape for CAR-T cell therapies, sponsors may encounter challenges in their efforts to bring products to market Since the historic approval of Kymriah® (tisagenlecleucel) in 2017, research on chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy has accelerated. There are more than 230 regenerative medicine companies in Europe and...

Novel Trial Approaches for Rare Cancer Patients

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...

Considerations for Applying Adaptive Design Approaches to Early Oncology Studies

By utilizing accumulating data to modify the operating characteristics of an active trial in accordance with pre-specified rules, adaptive designs can make clinical trials more flexible, efficient, and informative than fixed-sample designs.[1] Adaptive design approaches can be applied across all phases of clinical development, including early oncology studies. These designs introduce real-time flexibility while a...

Minimizing Early-Stage Oncology Failures with Adaptive Design Approaches

Despite advances in our understanding of the complex genetic, molecular, and immunological factors which lead to cancer, the success and likelihood of approval rates for oncology remain low. According to a recent study performed by the Biotechnology Innovation Organization(BIO), nearly one-third of drugs entering phase 2 studies between 2006 and 2015 failed to progress. Of...

Adaptive Trial Designs in Early Oncology: Minimizing Risk & Accelerating Timelines

Introduction Over the past decade, significant advances have improved our understanding of the genetic and molecular mechanisms that lead to cancer. And yet, a recent review of the oncology drugs approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the basis of response rate showed only 10 percent of these therapies demonstrate an overall...
