Cancer research is complex: trials require specific trial design expertise, often include biomarker and companion diagnostics, and attrition rates tend to be high. A clinical research organization with broad cancer research clinical trial experience and deep knowledge of regulatory requirements can mitigate risks associated with these complex studies.

IDDI is an oncology CRO led by a highly-skilled biostatistical and clinical team of thought-leaders in oncology research. 66% of our studies are in oncology. IDDI’s expertise lies in the right choice of endpoints, adequate definition of selection criteria, sensible use of safety and efficacy assessments, and state-of-the-art statistical planning, analysis and modelling tailored to oncology drug development needs.

We have designed, collected, analyzed clinical data and reported on cancer research studies for more than 30 years and are currently collaborating with oncology cooperative groups all over the world.
