Immunotherapy Trials: Overcoming the Challenges of Selecting the Correct Patient Population, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

One of America's foremost oncologists leads this webinar series on the past, the present and the future of immunotherapy studies

Xtalks Life Science Webinars

There are lots of immunotherapies currently being tested in oncology trials and they are one of the leading forces in oncology drug trials throughout North America and the World. The marketplace is teeming with “the latest” and “the greatest” immunotherapies, but do they work in practice? How can they be brought to market in a practical, cost-efficient manner, that pays due respect to the commercial objectives of the sponsor, and the treatment imperatives of the patient?

Ari VanderWalde, MD, MPH, FACP, Scientific Leader at George Clinical CRO, Director of Clinical Research at West Cancer Center and Associate Vice Chancellor of Clinical Research at University of Tennessee Health Science Center, will give you a no-holds-barred perspective of the trials of the past, how they worked, and insight into successes and failures of those earlier trials. He will use present-day case studies that represent the current landscape and highlight the logistics and challenges that come with running an efficient precision medicine trial. Finally, he will discuss the future of immunotherapy trials: basket/umbrella trials and the most effectual approach to bring the latest and greatest compounds to market. All of this will be based on tried and true experience.

Do not miss this live webinar upcoming on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 at 12 p.m. EDT (5 p.m. BST/UK), if you are the CMO, CEO, COO, Clinical Operations Leader, Outsourcing/Procurement Leader or CSO of pharmaceutical, biotech or organizations with a cellular therapy compound in their pipeline.

Dr. Vanderwalde offers a unique perspective as a clinician, and as a medical leader for an oncology CRO, who has had an extensive career at the forefront throughout the rise of immunotherapy trials.
