Download slides (PDF)

Thank you for your interest in the recording of our recent webinar. During this webinar James Matcham, Vice President Strategic Consulting at Cytel, will discuss how small to medium Biotech's taking their early steps into clinical development often do not have the technical expertise in adaptive trial design needed to accelerate their early trial clinical trial programs. This webinar will outline the trends in the use of adaptive design in early phase clinical trials.

Key learnings: 

  • The use of Bayesian (and other) dose escalation designs
  • Early proof of concept designs
  • Designs with Combination products
  • Adaptive Dose finding designs
  • Population Enrichment designs
