  • Thursday, May 09, 2019

As clinical trials evolve, it is natural to feel overwhelmed with how to begin planning master protocols for new study designs – namely platform, basket and umbrella trials.

With the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s draft guidance ‘Master Protocols: Efficient Clinical Trial Design Strategies to Expedite Development of Oncology Drugs and Biologics’  –  it opens up a world of opportunities forsponsors and sites alike. 

Through years of experience helping sponsors manage complex oncology trials, endpoint has established a deep understanding of the emphasis needed on continuously advancing eClinical technology to accommodate for the increasing complexities of trial management. In this webinar, learn how to efficiently and easily manage platform, basket and umbrella trials so sponsors and sites can focus on what matters most – the patient.
