Clinical endpoints and treatment effect in immuno-oncology
July 7, 2020
IDDI Complimentary Webinar on Immuno-Oncology
Immuno-oncology is a buoyant field of research, with recently developed drugs showing unprecedented response rates and/or a hope for a meaningful prolongation of the overall survival of some patients.
In this webinar our speakers reviewed:
- Adaptations to tumor response and progression criteria for immune therapies. Survival may be the endpoint of choice for clinical trials in some tumor types, but presence of delayed treatment effects and non-proportional hazards may complicate evaluation of treatment benefits.
- Statistical methods to best describe and test for treatment effects in immuno-oncology randomized clinical trials.
