It’s shaping up to be a busy year for Cytel’s software development team with a number of upgrades and planned launches across our range of tools. (Watch this space for announcements soon on new quantitative decision-making software OK GO and an upgrade to EnForeSys). East, our industry leading platform for clinical trial design, simulation, and monitoring will be unveiling version 6.5 in the Fall, and delegates at the PSI conference in early June had the chance to grab a sneak peek of the new functionality in one to one demos.
We’ll also be opening the hood on the new design capabilities you can expect in East 6.5 at a complimentary webinar on Wednesday July 18, 11:00AM - 12:00 US EDT (16:00 UK, 17:00 EU).
Our presenters Pantelis Vlachos and Charles Liu, will introduce the 3 new available modules and share their insights on the supporting methodologies and their practical applications. New developments in the East software are typically derived from two sources: our team’s interaction with our customers, particularly during East training; and from our consulting practice when we help clients design their trials.
The new modules in East 6.5 include:
MCPMod (design with Multiple Comparisons Procedures)
MCPMod allows you to measure the likelihood that particular dose-response curves are the right mathematical model for a given set of data. East MCPMod will allow designing a trial using optimal allocation and then analyze the trial data using various dose/model selection criteria resulting
into a solid base (target dose) for the next phase confirmatory trial.
Population Enrichment (Adaptive designs)
An adaptive enrichment design allows the full population is segmented during interim analyses. Recently, we worked with TRACON Pharmaceuticals to design their TAPPAS trial that incorporated a population enrichment component to help overcome the potential heterogeneity of treatment effect between subpopulations for an angiosarcoma design.
It is important to take a strategic approach to clinical development to minimize the potential for Phase 3 attrition. This new module will help users apply simulations to optimize their clinical trial programs.
