Insights on the major trends in oncology including the development of targeted therapies in clinical trial designs and patient care.
Successive revolutions of prevention strategies and precision medicine in the past two decades have contributed to lowering the mortality rate for the ten most prevalent cancers by more than 10% across most of Europe, Asia, and North America. In the coming years, emergent therapeutic strategies, including immuno-oncologics and liquid biopsy-based companion diagnostics, may yield some of the most transformative clinical benefits to date. Yet, oncology pipelines remain rife with challenges. This whitepaper provides specific ideas and innovative approaches that make a real difference to the successful conduct of industry-sponsored clinical trials.Download the whitepaper
The goal of oncology drug development is to bring effective treatments and improved individual care to patients suffering from cancer. The process to get a new therapy approved by the FDA may take 10–15 years and requires the timely completion of numerous clinical trials. The success of the process rests on finding and supporting the investigators and site staff that ultimately recruit the patients for the studies. CROs can reduce barriers to clinical research participation for sites, by finding ways to create administrative efficiencies, keep investigators engaged throughout the process,Download the whitepaper
Immuno-oncology (I-O) plays an increasingly important part in cancer treatment, utilising the body’s own immune system to fight the disease. Although not a new concept, I-O has progressed considerably in the last 10-15 years with approvals for numerous I-O therapies including vaccines, cytokines, tumour-directed monoclonal antibodies, and immune checkpoint inhibitors.Download the whitepaper
