Leveraging Predictive Dosing to Reduce Clinical Trial Risk

  • Wednesday, February 10, 2021

Medication non-adherence in clinical trials can lower the statistical power of the study, leading to incorrect conclusions about the safety and efficacy of novel treatments. A recent study by the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development reviewed over 250,000 dosing videos captured by the AiCure platform, showing approximately half (48%) of all study volunteers had at least one intentionally non-adherent dose. Apart from concerns about the underestimation of the true dose response, toxicity and the overestimation of the optimal dose level required, new questions arise around the ability of trial investigators to predict patient behavior and factor it into analysis.

In this webinar, Rich Christie, MD, PhD, from AiCure, Ken Getz from the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development and Dooti Roy, PhD, from Boehringer Ingelheim, will discuss patient dosing patterns and how to apply predictive dosing to improve the effectiveness of clinical trials. Register for this webinar to hear their novel insights.
