Renowned Cancer Researcher Dan Von Hoff, M.D. Advocates for 'The Lost Opportunity in Phase I Oncology Trials'
Date:12/22/2008

tients and drug developers alike;
  • Why time to progression should be included in the trial protocol so it becomes part of each patient's data bank;
  • How to appropriately incorporate efficacy into the story you tell to sponsors and investors when raising money;
  • When to invest more deeply in a new therapy based on this data.

  • A member of President Bush's National Cancer Advisory Board, Dr. Von Hoff's major interest is in the development of new anticancer agents both in the clinic and in the laboratory. His laboratory interests and contributions have been in the area of in vitro drug sensitivity testing to individualize treatment for the patient. At present, he and his colleagues are concentrating on the development of molecularly targeted therapies with a focus on pancreatic cancer.

    Dr. Von Hoff currently serves as Senior Investigator and Head of Translational Research at the Translational Genomics Research Institute's (TGen) Translational Drug Development Division and Head, Pancreatic Cancer Research Program in Phoenix, Arizona. He also serves as Chief Scientific Officer for U.S. Oncology and the Scottsdale Clinical Research Institute and is a founding shareholder and chair of the medical advisory board of Medelis.

    The abstract is the fourth in Medelis' complimentary "Peer Perspectives in Oncology" Q&A series, which brings together respected researchers to discuss issues that face Chief Medical Officers today: rising costs, optimum patient accrual, targeted therapeutics, patient safety, FDA regulations, efficacy, budgets, and timelines.

    The abstract is available for download at Medelis.com.
