There is growing interest in integrated Phase I/II oncology clinical trials involving molecularly targeted agents (MTA). One of the main challenges of these trials are nontrivial dose-efficacy relationships and administration of MTAs in combination with other agents. While some designs were recently proposed for such Phase I/II trials, the majority of them consider the case of binary toxicity and efficacy endpoints only. At the same time, a continuous efficacy endpoint can carry more information about the a...
In clinical trials, selection of appropriate study endpoints is critical for an accurate and reliable evaluation of safety and effectiveness of a test treatment under investigation. In practice, however, there are usually multiple endpoints available for measurement of disease status and/or therapeutic effect of the test treatment under study. For example, in cancer clinical trials, overall survival, response rate, and/or time to disease progression are usually considered as primary clinical endpoints for e...
Immunotherapies have revolutionized cancer treatment. Unlike chemotherapies, immune agents often take longer time to show benefit, and the complex and unique mechanism of action of these agents renders the use of multiple endpoints more appropriate in some trials. These new features of immunotherapy make conventional phase II trial designs, which assume a single binary endpoint that is quickly ascertainable, inefficient and dysfunctional.
Alzheimer's disease (AD) clinical trials, focused on disease modifying drugs and conducted in patients with mild to moderate AD, as well as prodromal (early) AD, have failed to reach efficacy endpoints in improving cognitive function in most cases to date or have been terminated due to adverse events. Drugs that have reached clinical stage were reviewed using web resources (such as clinicaltrials.gov, alzforum.org, company press releases, and peer reviewed literature) to identify late stage (Phase II and Ph...
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a global public health concern. Its natural history, the development of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and fibrosis, is highly variable, prone to endogenous (e.g., genetics, microbiota) and exogenous (e.g., nutrition, alcohol, physical activity) disease modifiers, and can fluctuate over time. The complexity of its pathophysiology is reflected by the multitude of pharmacological targets in development. NASH clinical trials have provided valuable insight that i...
For a trial with primary endpoint overall survival for a molecule with curative potential, statistical methods that rely on the proportional hazards assumption may underestimate the power and the time to final analysis. We show how a cure proportion model can be used to get the necessary number of events and appropriate timing via simulation. If phase 1 results for the new drug are exceptional and/or the medical need in the target population is high, a phase 3 trial might be initiated after phase 1. Buildin...
Because of the highly penetrant gene mutation and clinical features consistent with idiopathic Parkinson's disease, carriers of the autosomal dominant Ala53Thr (A53T; 209G→A) point mutation in the α-synuclein (SNCA) gene are an ideal population to study the premotor phase and evolution of Parkinson's pathology. Given the known neurochemical changes in the serotonergic system and their association with symptoms of Parkinson's disease, we hypothesised that carriers of the A53T SNCA mutation might show abno...
A randomized phase III trial was planned to commence in October 2017. Resectable giant cell tumor of bone (GCTB) without possible postoperative large bone defect has been treated by curettage with local adjuvant treatment, with the local recurrence rate found to be as high as 24.6-30.8%. The aim of this study is to confirm the superiority of preoperative denosumab for patients with GCTB without possible postoperative large bone defect. A total of 106 patients will be accrued from 34 Japanese institutions ov...
To document the acceptability of treatment with long-acting injectable (LAI) antipsychotic medication to early-phase schizophrenia patients as demonstrated by enrollment in a cluster-randomized LAI clinical trial.
Perifosine (PRF) is an oral alkylphospholipid with antineoplastic effects and reasonable tolerability. It inhibits signaling through the PI3/AKT axis and other cascades of biologic importance in glioblastoma, and has promising pre-clinical activity in vitro and in vivo. Therefore, we conducted a phase II open-label single-arm clinical trial of perifosine for patients with recurrent glioblastoma (GBM).
To identify quantitative EEG frequency and connectivity features (Phase Lag Index) characteristic of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients and to investigate if these features correlate with cognitive measures of the patients.
Antiangiogenic agents combined with chemotherapy have efficacy in the treatment of unresectable malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM). Cediranib (AstraZeneca, Cheshire, United Kingdom), a vascular endothelial growth factor receptor and platelet-derived growth factor receptor inhibitor, demonstrated therapeutic potential in a prior phase I trial. We evaluated a phase II trial for efficacy.
Glasdegib is a potent and selective oral inhibitor of the Hedgehog pathway. We report data from the single-arm, lead-in cohort of an open-label phase 1b/2 trial of glasdegib in patients with primary/secondary myelofibrosis (MF) previously treated with at least one Janus kinase inhibitor (JAKi). Patients received glasdegib 100 mg orally once daily until there was no further clinical benefit. Primary endpoints included adverse events (AEs). Secondary endpoints included patients with spleen volume reduction ...
Well-established, validated and clinically meaningful primary and secondary endpoints are critical in advancing vaccines through proof of principal studies, licensure and pre-qualification. To that end, the field of vaccine development for Shigella, enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) as well as other enteric pathogens would benefit greatly from a focused review of clinical endpoints and the use of common endpoints across the field to enable study-to-study comparisons as well as comparative assessments ...
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a relevant cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Around half of HCC patients will receive systemic therapies during their life span. The pivotal positive sorafenib trial and regulatory approval in 2007 was followed by a decade of negative studies with drugs leading to marginal anti-tumoral efficacy, toxicity, or trials with lack of enrichment strategies. This trend has changed during the period 2016-18, when several compounds such as lenvatinib (in first line) and re...
Although gait disorders strongly contribute to perceived disability in people with Parkinson's disease, clinical trials have failed to identify which task-oriented gait training method can provide the best benefit. Freezing of gait remains one of the least investigated and most troublesome symptoms.
As therapeutic trials target early stages of Parkinson's disease (PD), appropriate patient selection based purely on clinical criteria poses significant challenges. Members of the Critical Path for Parkinson's Consortium formally submitted documentation to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) supporting the use of Dopamine Transporter (DAT) neuroimaging in early PD. Regulatory documents included a comprehensive literature review, a proposed analysis plan of both observational and clinical trial data, and an ...
Health plan administrative claims data present a cost-effective complement to traditional trial-specific ascertainment of clinical events typically conducted through patient report or a single health system electronic health record. We aim to demonstrate the value of health plan claims data in improving the capture of endpoints in longitudinal pragmatic clinical trials.
With the rapid increase in utilization of imaging endpoints in multicenter clinical trials, the amount of data and workflow complexity have also increased. A Clinical Trial Imaging Management System (CTIMS) is required to comprehensively support imaging processes in clinical trials. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a guidance protocol in 2018 for appropriate use of medical imaging in accordance with many regulations including the Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines. Existing research on ...
This multicenter, phase II clinical trial evaluated the diagnostic performance of 18F-fluciclovine, a novel amino acid for positron-emission tomography (PET), for detection of small lymph node metastases with short-axis diameters of 5-10 mm in patients with prostate cancer.
Diagnostic tests favoured to detect C. difficile infections (CDI) have undergone successive changes. The problem of over-diagnosis with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing is recognized in the clinical setting; here we discuss the parallel of the clinical trial setting. We summarize and discuss four examples of the impact of method used to diagnose CDI on clinical trial outcomes. Bezlotoxumab, a human monoclonal antibody neutralizing toxin B, was found to be protective against recurrent CDI (rCDI) in cl...
Selegiline or levodopa treatment has been suggested as a therapeutic method for Parkinson's disease (PD) in many clinical trial reports. However, the combined effects of two drugs still remain controversial. The aim of this report was to evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of selegiline plus levodopa (S + L) combination therapy in the treatment of PD compared to that of L monotherapy, to provide a reference resource for rational drug use.
: Despite considerable advances in our understanding of how sepsis develops and multiple clinical trials of potential therapies, no new pharmacologic agent has been consistently shown to improve survival. : We reviewed relevant publications identified through PubMed and from the authors' knowledge of this field. We discuss the main reasons why clinical trials on new therapeutic interventions have failed in the past, including heterogeneity of study populations and choice of outcome measures. We discuss how ...
