Cytel and Medelis Present an Educational Webinar April 7: Transforming Oncology Development with Adaptive Studies
Date:3/24/2011

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and PHOENIX, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cytel, a leading provider of adaptive clinical trial services and software, jointly announced with oncology-focused CRO Medelis, the opening of registration for their April 7 webinar "Transforming Oncology Development With Adaptive Studies".

Over 50% of confirmatory clinical studies today end in failure – a distressing reality, especially for oncologists and developers of cancer treatments. Fortunately, increasing use of validated adaptive designs is helping reverse this discouraging trend.

With their improved probability of successful outcome, adaptive trials are increasingly proposed and accepted by international regulatory agencies. Download the FDA's guidance at: www.fda.gov, search: "download adaptive guidance".

Bridging the gap between statistical innovations and clinical reality, the webinar program will educate all oncology treatment stakeholders: study sponsors, their investors, the medical community, and regulators. The webinar centers on the breakthrough adaptive Promising Zone "de-risking" strategy now accepted for pivotal phase 3 development studies.

The April 7 webinar speakers: noted oncology advisor Dr. John Grous from Medelis and Cytel President and Co-Founder Cyrus Mehta, PhD. Together, they'll examine two actual, adaptive confirmatory studies currently underway.

The recent peer-reviewed publication Adaptive Increase in Sample Size when Interim Results are Promising documents the underlying Promising Zone statistical technique, adaptive Sample Size Re-estimation.
