Event description:

Overview: The seminar will mainly focus on critical points related to clinical trials. Among the others, a critical point is related to the clinical trial endpoints, other than survival, that objectively demonstrate meaningful clinical benefit. In fact, with the introduction of molecular pathology, patients and their oncologists now deal with a greater variety of malignant diseases than ever before, each of which likely benefits from a unique approach to treatment. Furthermore, many new drugs determine slow tumor progression instead of causing tumor shrinkage. Therefore cancer drug trials may require more patients and the more frequent use of placebo controls, thus presenting greater recruitment challenges as well as requiring a long period of time to reach major clinical endpoints, more expensive clinical documentation to record progression events, and additional regulatory scrutiny. For all the mentioned reasons potential surrogate endpoints and other biomarkers have been identified and evaluated and they will be discussed during the seminar. Another critical point is related to the clinical trial conduction within the sites. Therefore it is also important to know what deviations, violations and exceptions represent and when they could have an impact on the clinical trial results. On the other hand, it is important to underline in which situations a waiver could be given and a less strict Company's behavior could facilitate the study without compromising the study results.
