  • Webinar description:

Developing treatments for rare diseases pose many unique challenges that cannot be addressed by traditional study designs, including:

    • Prolonged enrolment periods and/or inability to enroll enough patients to formally power trials
    • Lack of clarity regarding endpoints and key design assumptions due to limited relevant clinical trials experience
    • Ethical concerns around the inclusion of a control arms.

These challenges require novel approaches, several of which will be reviewed and discussed during this webinar.

  • Agenda:
    • Informational Adaptive Design
    • Use of External Controls
    • Master Protocols
    • Decision Making at Master Protocol and Portfolio Level
