Regulatory Considerations on Imaging Endpoint Procedures in Oncology Trials: a Comparison of China NMPA and FDA Guidelines

In April 2020, The China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) regulatory agency publicly solicited opinions on the draft guidelines on “Standard and Technical Guidelines for Imaging Endpoint Procedures for Clinical Trials of Anti-tumor Drugs”.

  • How the new regulations affect the endpoint selection of cancer drug approval?
  • What are the key differences compared with FDA guidelines?
  • How to select qualified imaging vendors for this activity to accelerate the drug approval in a compliant and efficient manner?

In this presentation, Dr. Yan Liu, Median’s CMO and a member of the expert panel who developed the NMPA guidelines, as well as Mr. Faisel Jobrani, Head of Median QA provide you with a clear vision based on concrete examples.

Imaging in oncology trials: local vs. central read workflows: Let’s discuss!

Imaging is frequently used to derive the endpoints of oncology studies; hence, it is critical to provide accurate data. However, not every study is designed the same or has the same needs. What is sufficient for your study? What alternatives do you have? The improvement of data reliability that comes with central reads is costly and some decisions are difficult to make. This 30-minute presentation + 15-minute Q&A provides a review of the imaging practices for oncology trials and the elements to support this key decision.

Agenda

  • Overview
  • Local Reads: workflow, limitations
  • Central reads: possible workflows, limitations (difficulties, operational complexity)
  • Quality of reads and variability: monitoring
  • Summary: how to choose the right design

The Evolution of Response Evaluation Criteria in Cancer Immunotherapy

The response evaluation of cancer immunotherapy requires differentiation from traditional chemotherapy; hence, it needs more precise criteria that are compatible with the observed response patterns and the well-documented mechanism of action of these novel treatments. This 30-minute presentation + 15-minute Q&A provides a review of the latest advances on imaging assessment for cancer immunotherapy evaluation in clinical trials.

Agenda

  • Lesson learnt – the evolution of response criteria in immunotherapy
  • Overview of immune modified response criteria
  • Challenging cases – pitfall of imaging interpretation

Imaging Phenomics in Precision Medicine

Presented by:  Dr. Loan Hoang-Sayag, Chief Medical Officer and Dr. Peter Bannister, Chief Technology Officer

Recent discoveries in the imaging of various cancers and diseases have shown that imaging features can reflect underlying disease pathophysiology. Imaging features may be apparent at the visual level to a skilled clinician, or may instead only manifest themselves at a much finer scale following image processing that is not routinely applied in the clinic.

Other features may only be identifiable when considering multiple image types in parallel. The quantification of these features, in order to identify fingerprints of a specific disease embedded in medical images, is known as Imaging Phenomics. With the use of deep learning technology and artificial intelligence, a new paradigm of computer-aided medical treatment is emerging and imaging phenomics may serve as another foundation for delivering precision medicine.

What you will learn in this webinar:

  • An introduction to imaging phenomics
  • The types of imaging features that may provide robust and non-invasive indicators of disease state
  • Approaches that can be employed to train and validate prognostic models using deep learning and other artificial intelligence techniques
  • Predictive solutions for cancer and diseases of the liver, prostate and lung
  • Median’s iBiopsy® system for precision medicine
  • A future look at next generation imaging and analysis
