Innovative Trial Design Symposium: Adaptive Designs and Improving Operational Efficiency

Hear Jim Bolognese and Narinder Nangia from Alkermes on designing Phase 2 trials based on program-level optimization (i.e., optimizing the entire Phase 2/3 drug development strategy). You'll learn how:

  • Phase 2 sample size can be optimized to yield maximum eNPV when selecting 1 or 2 doses for Phase 3
  • Studying more doses in Phase 2 can improve Probability of Success, yielding higher product eNPV, unless AE rates low for all doses

Watch: Know the Risks You Need to Manage in Clinical Outsourcing

Time and again, we hear “Outsourcing key clinical functions is a clinical development risk mitigation strategy”. But do you really know the risks you need to mitigate in today's clinical research? Little wonder why the results so often disappoint: Sponsors don't know well what they should be considering to succeed.
