Knowledge-Based Approaches to Decreasing Clinical Attrition Rates, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Xtalks Life Science Webinars

The pharmaceutical industry continues to face enormous challenges. Increasing payer pressures and a constantly changing regulatory landscape have forced all companies to identify new processes that can increase productivity and decrease attrition. However, success rates for candidate drugs moving from Phase I to market have remained relatively steady at ~7% for the last several years. There have been numerous attempts to understand the reasons for failure and many have offered suggestions that have promised to decrease attrition, but these have mostly met with marginal success.

In this live webinar, our featured speakers will cover the leading factors that contribute to clinical attrition, discuss a number of factors associated with trial endpoint success and explore specific strategies related to effective trial amendments. For trial success, the speakers will look at several aspects of trial design that are associated with increased likelihood of trial endpoint success, including the application of specific types of biomarkers in different phases and therapeutic areas.

Participants will learn:

  • What the latest trends are in clinical success and phase attrition
  • The scenarios in which biomarkers contribute most to trial endpoint success
  • How can you inform critical decisions relating to trial amendments

Join our guest panel from Clarivate Analytics for an information session on Thursday, May 3, 2018 at 9am EDT (2pm BST/UK). The session will benefit professionals working within clinical development, clinical operations and clinical research and development from biopharmaceutical companies.
