Abstract # / Poster # – The adjudication rates between readers in Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR) of advanced esophageal cancer trials with or without immune checkpoint initiators as first-line therapy
- Session: Gastrointestinal Cancer, Gastroesophageal, Pancreatic and Hepatobiliary
- Date: Saturday June 4, 2022
- Time: 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM CDT
- Place: McCormick Place South, Hall A, Poster Board 27
The study analyzed a pool of advanced esophageal cancer trials with or without immune checkpoint inhibitors, which used RECIST 1.1, and documented the proportion of reader discrepancies, reader performance through monitoring procedures. 4 esophageal cancer BICR trials that included 1,875 patients (8,501 time-points) involving 14 radiologists were analyzed. Trials had an average adjudication rate of 45.28%. The discordances of baseline lesion selection (34.4% of discordances) and lesion measurement (40.3% of discordance) in follow up visits are the main reasons triggering adjudications in esophageal cancer central reading. Appropriate reader training and monitoring are solutions which can not only mitigate a large portion of the commonly encountered reading errors, but also help to reach more consensus on lesion selection and measurement between readers.
The Median’s clinical team will be available at booth #2098, Exhibit Hall A to discuss the abstract results from June 4 to June 6, 9:00 am-5:00 pm.
