Imaging services in clinical trials: using Business Intelligence-based reporting tools to optimize operations efficiency

Efficient reporting tools are a must have when managing the vast amount of data in clinical trials. However, reports are only meaningful when they are based on accurate operational data and challenges can arise when data is constantly changing and is integrated from multiple sources using various formats.

This 45-minute presentation provides an overview on how Business Intelligence (BI) is used at Median to develop comprehensive and meaningful reporting tools based on high quality data, for better operational efficiency. Here are some insights we will be discussing:

  • BI for data management in clinical trials, including 2 main components: data integration and data visualization,
  • BI-based data integration is the most efficient way to manage clinical data coming from multiple sources using different formats,
  • BI-based data visualization enables the aggregation of data in powerful reports, providing insights on quality monitoring, activity, forecasts, and risk management for clinical trials,
  • Implementing a BI based reporting tool is an exceedingly profitable investment for both clients and imaging CROs! Let us explain why!

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
