Overcoming Drug Resistance Patterns in Non-Responders: Proven Best Practices on Informing Your Clinical Strategy

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Drug Discovery & Development,
  • Friday, March 22, 2019

Many standard of care (SOC) treatments in cancer patients result in a clinical outcome of non-response. Drug development companies are trending toward interrogating resistance mechanisms and using this information in advancing their programs and informing personalized approaches to novel therapeutics.

In this free webinar, learn about:

  • Key ingredients to testing hypotheses of specific resistance mechanisms that are involved in non-responders in a specific case study
  • How various drug combinations may overcome these identified resistance mechanisms
  • Discussion on how to improve clinical trial design

This webinar will benefit executives in small to mid-size biotech and pharmaceutical companies interested in learning more about how to save time and money while maximizing the value of their drug development clinical trial programs.


Dr. Mark Paris, Director of Translational Applications, Mitra Biotech
