Clinical Research: Phase 1 - Phase 4

Pathways to Expedited Drug Development in the U.S. and Europe

Preparing for expedited drug development requires a thorough understanding of the steps that comprise a successful first-in-human study. It’s essential to start with the end firmly in mind, identifying the target population and defining elements of the program long before you dose the first patient. This webinar will show you where to start and how to envision...

Clinical Data Trends: Transforming Data Access/Analysis

The clinical trial industry has been steadily undergoing a data evolution. Data from remote capture devices, such as wearables and other novel sources (e.g., increasingly large health data repositories and electronic healthcare data), have gained importance. Proper management and utilization of such data allows sponsors to untether from a set roster of trial sites, focus...

Long-Term Gene Therapy Follow-Up: Patient Considerations

When developing a long-term follow-up strategy for gene therapy trials, safety is the main concern, closely followed by the patient perspective. Digital technologies and monitoring have proven essential to this, easing the burden on the patient, and providing accurate, time-saving methods of data management. Momentum is increasing in the field of gene therapy, with over...

Global FSP: The Expertise You Need. Exactly Where You Need It.

In the normal course of a clinical trial, delays are often accepted as part of the process. For instance, data entered by the site may not auto-encode correctly and therefore require further review by a medical coder, generally within five days. But in the fight against COVID-19, time is especially critical. A large pharmaceutical company...

How to Mitigate the Placebo Response in Analgesia Clinical Trials

The placebo effect can be problematic in analgesia clinical trials with a symptom-based approach, as placebo-related analgesic responses may occur and persist for some time in up to 60 percent of study participants.1 In chronic pain studies, it is generally assumed that the placebo effect accounts for approximately 30 percent of the analgesic response.2 The...

Alternative Designs to the Traditional 3+3 Design in Phase 1 Dose Escalation Studies, Upcoming Webinar

TORONTO (PRWEB) FEBRUARY 08, 2021 Phase 1 clinical trials aim to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of a new molecule with the goal of identifying a recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D), often the MTD itself. Ideally, the RP2D would have adequate therapeutic effect to demonstrate preliminary signs of efficacy in Phase 2, but many...

The Great Debate: The Use of Placebo Control in Chronic Pain Studies

The use of placebo control in clinical trials has long been a topic of spirited debate. Proponents maintain that placebo control is necessary for proving the safety and efficacy of investigational products. Critics argue that use of placebo sacrifices patient welfare and is unethical if a proven therapy is available. In analgesia studies, the question...

Essential Strategies for Patient-Focused Dermatology Clinical Trials

Dermatology clinical research is undergoing a rapid transformation in response to new demands for clinical trials that are more justifiable, safer, and less burdensome for patients. In dermatology, a patient-focused approach can be applied to all phases of the research process, from the earliest stages of discovery and pre-clinical testing to clinical trials, regulatory approval,...

Establishing Competitive Advantage in Dermatology Trials: Critical Study Design and Operational Considerations for a New Age

Skin diseases are the fourth leading cause of health afflictions, affecting nearly 900 million people worldwide.1,2 At the same time, there has been a remarkable increase in dermatology drug development activity in recent years. For conditions such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and melanoma, there are hundreds of ongoing or planned clinical trials.3 In this new...
