Phase I Oncology trials used dose-escalation to determine the maximum tolerated dose for further study. Modern model-based techniques help to acquire knowledge about the chemistry of the new drug and select appropriate dose for later phases. It offers clinicians more flexibility than more traditional designs like the 3+3. Through this introduction to advanced dose escalation methods, you will first learn about the traditional 3+3 method for dose-escalation and then gain an understanding of how Bayesian logistic regression model (BLRM) techniques can improve the traditional method.
