Design of Dose-response Clinical Trials

Thursday, March 17, 2016 - 11:00
Naitee Ting, Boehringer-Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, ASA Fellow
Statistics Seminar
Room 4192, Earth Sciences Building, 2207 Main Mall

Challenges in designing these studies include: selection of the dose
   frequency and the dose range, choice of clinical endpoints or biomarkers,
   and use of control(s), among others.  Consequences of bad Phase II study
   designs may lead to the delay of the entire clinical development program
   or the waste of R&D investment.  Misleading results obtained from poor
   designs could cause a Phase III program to confirm a wrong set of doses,
   or to stop developing a potentially useful drug.  Therefore, it is
   critical to consider an entire drug development plan, to make best use of
   all the available information, and to include all relevant experts in
   designing Phase II dose response clinical trials.  This presentation
   discusses some of these considerations.
