Read more about this and the discussions that you missed at the MassBio Forum on Adaptive Designs in Clinical Research that took place last month.
Just last week, in the midst of the daily chaos of building new clinical trial databases, working on impending regulatory submissions, holding project team meetings, and programing tables figures & listings, Veristat paused its operations for one day in order to reflect upon and celebrate its contributions to drug development.
At the 2016 Duke Industry Statistics Symposium, Dr. Robin Bliss, in collaboration with Dr. Jing Wang of Gilead Sciences, lead a discussion on “Biomarker-Driven Clinical Trial Designs for Precision Medicine.” Dr. Bliss highlighted two Adaptive Enrichment Clinical Trials performed by Veristat as case studies for how to select and execute an enrichment clinical trial design.

An adaptive design is a clinical trial design that allows adaptations or modifications to aspects of the trial after its initiation without undermining the validity and integrity of the trial. An adaptive design consists of multiple stages. At each stage, data analyses are conducted and adaptations take place based on updated information to maximize the probability of success of a trial.

If you're reading this as a biostatistician or clinical trial professional, you know that the pharmaceutical industry is shifting from classical to adaptive clinical trial design in an effort to reduce NDA failure rate, lower the cost of research and development, and expedite the precision medicine movement. As a member of the Talent & Culture team at Veristat (a CRO), I spend a great deal of time speaking with people like yourself, many of whom are potential candidates excited about the opportunity to work at a company where they may get exposure to an adaptive design trial. Realizing the consistency across these conversations, I have begun wondering if their interest in adaptive designs is a result of it being a current trends, or if it is because adaptive design truly offers increased efficiencies. As a result, I have spent some time research when adaptive design might not be right for a clinical trial and have found two articles that discuss when it is appropriate to use them.
