PSI CRO AG, a full-service global CRO specializing in pivotal Phase 2 and 3 trials for oncology, hematology, and other select therapeutic areas, has published a new report on the current landscape of oncology research and its impact for future trials. Preparing for the Future of Oncology Clinical Research, co-authored by PSI’s Dr. Maxim Kosov, Senior Medical Advisor, Operations, and Dr. Victor Zenzola de Toma, Medical Monitor, provides essential insights for sponsors into the trends with the greatest potential to affect clinical trial design and operationalization.
Kosov and Zenzola de Toma reviewed data from over 2,200 poster presentations at the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting to develop the comprehensive overview. Topics include:
- General trends in oncology, including insights into concomitant medications’ impact on immune checkpoint inhibitors and emerging biomarkers such as ctDNA
- Therapeutic advances in the most challenging indications, including “HER2-low” breast cancer and resectable stage IIIA NSCLC
- Additional research highlights in gastrointestinal, gynecological, and genitourinary cancers as well as pediatric oncology and rare disease
“Oncology studies face unique challenges due to their expansive geographic footprints, lengthy screening and treatment durations, and massive amounts of clinical data,” said Dr. Kosov. “As the need for oncology clinical trials persists and grows, PSI CRO is committed to keeping abreast of the latest scientific advances and partnering with the companies and investigators doing the most exciting work across the wide range of oncology diseases.”
For the past 25 years, PSI CRO has worked with sponsors to advance their research in oncology by proactively cultivating long-term relationships with sites around the world and applying advanced technology for data-driven feasibility and enrollment forecast, including through its proprietary technology platform, INTELIA™.
VISIONAL™, the latest addition to the platform, allows project managers and sponsors to model and compare hundreds of country and site combinations, their budgets and probability of success within just a few minutes. In the end, it recommends the most optimal enrollment scenario in line with sponsor key objectives.
