An Inside Look At The World’s Largest Charitable Funder of Cancer Research

by Jonathan Stone

Cancer drug development has shifted in recent years as traditional chemotherapies give way to targeted therapies and therapeutic antibodies. Some of the most exciting research in this space is being done by London-based charity Cancer Research UK.

[Join co-hosts Cancer Research UK and Medidata for our upcoming Twitter chat, “Patient Centricity in Clinical Trials,” on May 19, 11 am EST / 4pm BST. We’ll discuss the challenges, opportunities and value that a patient-centric model presents for drug development.]

A House Wired for Clinical Research

by Medidata Solutions

a-house-wired-medidata-20160428Judith Kornfeld is the chief business and operations officer for ORCATECH, an R&D center formed in combination with the biomedical engineering and neurology departments at Oregon Health and Science University.

Her group has developed a system for clinical research based on remote sensing and pervasive computing whereby data is collected unobtrusively and continuously. ORCATECH installs sensors in patient homes, rather than outfitting patients with wearable devices, to monitor patient activity.

We chatted with Judith at the Partnerships In Clinical Trials conference in Hamburg, Germany, to discuss how technology is transforming clinical development.

The Patient Experience Will Define Clinical Trial Evolution

by Patrick Hankey

PrintI recently participated in a webinar on patient-centric trials with ISR president Andrew Schafer and patient advocate Steve Smith. The webinar — Capturing the Patient Voice: ePRO, Real World Data and the Future of Clinical Trials — considered how clinical trial design can improve to include a more patient-focused approach.

The event brought together diverse voices including Andrew Schafer and his recent pharma tech research, Steve Smith’s patient-advocate perspective, and my own background in both wearable sensors in pharmaceutical and healthcare research. (more…)

When is Adaptive Design Right for Your Clinical Trial?

by Wade Wirta

when-is-adaptive-design-medidata-20160421Pharmaceutical companies will accelerate adoption of adaptive clinical trial designs, according to the Tufts Center for Drug Development, to reduce clinical development timelines and costs while increasing program success rates.

Adaptive design varies intervention based on patient response, not to cherry pick results, but to refine the gold standard of randomized clinical trials.

These trial designs, which can alter patient sample size or dosing during the course of a trial, require new technology or working practices to implement changes in randomization in the trial and to manage the trial’s clinical drug supply chain. (more…)

Digital Health in Remote Patient Monitoring: Enabling Greater Visibility and Patient-Centricity

by Geeks Talk Clinical

This guest post is written by Ryan Beckland, the CEO and cofounder of Validic.

Throughout the duration of a study, researchers must frequently monitor clinical trial participants’ responses to a drug and capture precise sets of measurements. These measurements have traditionally been gathered at frequent office visits or through constant, at-home manual tracking by the participants. (more…)
