The Importance of Pilot Studies in Diagnostics Development

Pilot studies may seem unnecessary when your investigational diagnostic is performing superbly for lab professionals in your internal labs. Why waste time and money on a pilot study when you are witnessing excellent results in the lab day after day? After all, the goal of every development program is to obtain regulatory approval, market the [...]

Addressing High Failure Rates in Drug Development

FDA has published an excellent report on 22 instances in which phase 2 and phase 3 trials had divergent results. Appendix A of the report provides justifications for essential elements of modern clinical trials, including a control group, randomization and blinding. In addition, Appendix A highlights risks of techniques for improving efficiency in early development, [...]

Mitigating Risk in Neurosciences Studies with e-Source Assessments

The case for electronic data capture in neurosciences studies is strong. The high failure rate in CNS development, headlined by a series of failed Alzheimer’s studies, is one reason to seek better methods. According to a Scientific American article by Kenneth Kaitin and Christopher Milne of the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development, [...]

Meeting the Challenges of Phase 2 Clinical Development

Some investigational products successfully make the transition from phase 2 to phase 3 while most fall by the wayside. Disregarding products that fail because they simply lack efficacy or safety, what makes the difference between phase 2 success for a relative few products and failure for most? In our view, the key to maximizing chances [...]

Why Diagnostics Development Is Different

All clinical trials share core requirements such as the need to exclude bias and provide evidence of effectiveness. However, diagnostics trials differ from drug trials in many important ways. As a result, diagnostics development requires substantial differences in planning, trial design and trial execution. It will come as no surprise to diagnostics professionals that diagnostics [...]
