DescriptionThe main goal of a Phase I cancer clinical trial is to identify the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of a new drug having acceptable dose-limiting toxicity (DLT). Two main model-based designs are continual reassessment method (CRM) (OQuigley et al., 1990) and escalation with overdose control (EWOC) (Babb et al., 1998). Most of the designs are based on the binary toxic outcome. The occurrence of DLT is assessed over a predefined time window, and complete follow-up of the current patient is required to fit the model. Information is lost by categorizing time to DLT to a binary variable and might lead to a poor estimate of MTD. Trials might have to suspend accrual to obtain complete data and lead to long trial durations and complicate administrative burdens. Some methods have been proposed to incorporate the time-to-DLT using a weight function, such as TITE-CRM by Cheung and Chappell (2000) and TITE-EWOC by Mauguen et al. (2011). A better approach would be to model the time-to-DLT data ...
The continual reassessment method (1) (CRM) for phase I cancer trials provides improved estimation of the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), and fewer patients receive ineffective dose levels compared to the traditionally used design. However, the CRM has not gained acceptance in practice owing to concer …
BACKGROUND: Dose-finding trials are essential to drug development as they establish recommended doses for later-phase testing. We aim to motivate wider use of model-based designs for dose finding, such as the continual reassessment method (CRM). METHODS: We carried out a literature review of dose-finding designs and conducted a survey to identify perceived barriers to their implementation. RESULTS: We describe the benefits of model-based designs (flexibility, superior operating characteristics, extended scope), their current uptake, and existing resources. The most prominent barriers to implementation of a model-based design were lack of suitable training, chief investigators preference for algorithm-based designs (e.g., 3+3), and limited resources for study design before funding. We use a real-world example to illustrate how these barriers can be overcome. CONCLUSIONS: There is overwhelming evidence for the benefits of CRM. Many leading pharmaceutical companies routinely implement model-based designs.

The approved clinical trial will be open to patients with a variety of tumor types who have failed previous ...
Phase I trials are a critical first step in the study of novel cancer therapeutic approaches. Their primary goals are to identify the recommended dose, schedule and pharmacologic behavior of new agents or new combinations of agents and to describe the adverse effects of treatment. In cancer therapeutics, such studies have particular challenges. Due to the nature of the effects of treatment, most such studies are conducted in patients with advanced malignancy, rather than in healthy volunteers. Furthermore, the endpoints of these trials are usually measures adverse effects rather than molecular target or anti-tumor effects. These factors render the design, conduct, analysis and ethical aspects of phase I cancer trials unique. As the only comprehensive book on this topic, this online resource for oncology trainees and specialists explains cancer drug development and includes information on Phase 0 Trials, immunotherapeutics, and updated information on the process, pitfalls, and logistics of Phase ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Multidecadal Analysis of an Engineered River System Reveals Challenges for Model-Based Design of Human Interventions. AU - Berends, Koen D.. AU - Gensen, Matthijs R.A.. AU - Warmink, Jord J.. AU - Hulscher, Suzanne J.M.H.. PY - 2021. Y1 - 2021. N2 - Hydraulic models were used in practice to predict the effect of human intervention during extreme conditions. However, the accuracy of such predictions remains untested. In this study, we compare a simulated trend in water levels covering a twenty-year period of large-scale human intervention with a thirty-year observational record. The results show that the observed water levels display a linearly decreasing trend attributed to channel bed erosion. A deviation from this trend, which would be an indication of the effect of human intervention, was not observed. We propose that the most likely explanation for this is that any effect observable at lower discharge is hidden in the uncertainty of the rating curve. Given the inherent ...

Basel, March 7, 2018 Novartis today announced an additional strategic alliance with Science 37, a leader in decentralized clinical trial technology and design, to initiate up to 10 new clinical trials over the next three years. The studies will blend virtual and traditional models, with increasing degrees of decentralization towards a mostly site-less model. Novartis was an early investor in Science 37 and together we have already initiated virtual trials for cluster headache, acne and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Decentralized, or virtual, trials harness digital technology to allow some or all aspects of a clinical trial to be carried out at a participants home or local physicians office, rather than at a central trial site such as a large hospital. The new Novartis decentralized trials are expected to begin later this year in the United States (US) in the areas of dermatology, neuroscience and oncology, leveraging Science 37s proprietary Network Oriented Research Assistant ...

The care of patients with cancer has been a multidisciplinary effort throughout the 60-year history of MD Anderson Cancer Center. In the early years, cancer care at MD Anderson involved primarily the disciplines of diagnostic imaging, pathology, and a treatment modality. The complexity of these interrelationships has increased at a seemingly exponential rate, especially in the last decade. Technological advances, introduction of new drugs, improvements in supportive care, and exciting findings in basic and translational research have placed demands on the entire medical team for constant education and coordination.. Lung cancer is a leading cause of death from cancer throughout the world. It is by far the leading cause of death in all urbanized countries, and it has rapidly risen in importance in developing countries. An intensely committed group of physicians and laboratory investigators has been gathered at MD Anderson to treat lung cancer. Their understanding of the diseases involved and ...

Katherine: For people who dont understand how treatment approvals work, which would you give us an overview of the stages of clinical trials?. Dr. Mato: Sure. Im very involved in clinical trials at my center. There are different phases of clinical trials. And so, the way that I think about them would be - lets focus on Phase I through III, because those are probably the most relevant ones for patients. The purpose of a Phase I trial is really to define the dose of the drug and confirm that its safe or not. We get very, very preliminary data about activity of the drug, but the major question thats being asked is, Is this drug safe?. Phase II is - and I should also add that Phase I trials are relatively small. So, its a small number of patients where were trying to find the right dose. By the time we get to Phase II, we know the drug is likely safe. We have a lot of information about its side effect profile. We might have a hint that its active. And so, the purpose of a Phase II trial is ...

Robust systems designed to enable the use of engineered molecular systems in biotechnological and medical applications are of particular interest. This project will address various aspects of methods and model development for Molecular Systems Engineering to enable rational (model-based) design of molecular systems and component features such as kinetic parameters in iterations with experimental (analysis) approaches. For the rational design of synthetic molecular systems, mathematical models of different types have been developed. While a growing number of computational design tools implements such formal approaches, major challenges remain, for example, in terms of systematic model development and in the rational design of informative experiments for systems characterization. In the area of model-based analysis and design of genetic circuits, the development of computational models and design methods will enable rational design of parts and circuits. Another focus on the design of engineered ...

My first sabbatical was in England at the Chester Beatty Research Institute, (Royal Marsden Hospital) in Sutton a suburb south of London. The year was 1973. I remember this year very clearly since we were in England during the Yom Kippur war and also during the great English (Welsh) coal strike. The Royal Marsden was an institute famous for studies of leukemia, and was affiliated with the Chester Beatty Hospital in the city. I had chosen to work there because of Dr. Peter Alexander and his publications on macrophage activity and response to double stranded (ds) RNA. Macrophages are cells of the immune system that eat and clean up the body of foreign material and bacteria, and even destroy virus-infected cells. We had been working in my laboratory with a virus that during its replication produced large amounts of double stranded RNA, although the virus itself is single stranded. Double stranded RNA treatment of macrophages led to what were called angry macrophages. Microscopically the cells ...

Phase I trials aim to identify the recommended dose for further development. Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) could be a complement to the usual National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) scale to detect adverse events and define the doses. The objective of this study is to review the phase I in oncology which used HRQoL as endpoint. A search in PubMed database identified phase I trials in oncology with HRQoL as endpoint, published between January 2012 to May 2016. Hematological and pediatric phase I were excluded. A total of 1333 phase I were identified and 15 trials were identified with HRQoL as endpoint (1.1%). The European Organisation for Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire C30 (EORTC QLQ-C30) was the most frequently used instrument: 5 studies (33.3%). The targeted dimensions of HRQoL and the minimal clinically important difference were prespecified in 1 study (6.7%) and 2 studies (13.3%), respectively. Twelve studies (80%) described the

Simulation has played an important role in reducing design time and improving the reliability of power electronics systems. Over the years power electronics system diversity and complexity has grown to include subsystems which traditionally have used different modeling and simulation strategies, making the simulation of such systems difficult. This paper presents a standard simulation methodology for such complex power electronics systems based on cosimulation. This approach allows individual subsystems to be conveniently modeled in the most natural and trusted simulation environment. A simulation example of a four-phase buck converter employing digital control is provided. The power stage is modeled in Saber, and the digital controller is modeled in Simulnk using the Xilinx System Generator Blockset. The Saber-Simulink cosimulation is used as the interface between the two engines. Xilinx System Generator is used to automatically generate synthesizable code for Xilinx FPGAs. ...

Cancer treatment evolves through oncology clinical trials. Cancer trials are multimodal and complex. Assuring high-quality data are available to answer not only study objectives but also questions not anticipated at study initiation is the role of quality assurance. The National Cancer Institute reorganized its cancer clinical trials program in 2014. The National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN) was formed and within it was established a Diagnostic Imaging and Radiation Therapy Quality Assurance Organization. This organization is Imaging and Radiation Oncology Core, the Imaging and Radiation Oncology Core Group, consisting of 6 quality assurance centers that provide imaging and radiation therapy quality assurance for the NCTN. Sophisticated imaging is used for cancer diagnosis, treatment, and management as well as for image-driven technologies to plan and execute radiation treatment. Integration of imaging and radiation oncology data acquisition, review, management, and archive strategies are essential

The results of a pilot study to investigate the technique are published online today in The British Journal of Radiology.. Some prostate cancers can be aggressive while others never require treatment. Men diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer therefore have the option of delaying therapy and opting instead for Active Surveillance - regular monitoring by biopsy and testing levels of prostate specific antigen (PSA) in the blood. However, biopsies are invasive and carry side-effects while PSA testing can be inaccurate, so scientists are looking for other ways to monitor cancer growth in these men and determine if treatment is needed.. An accurate test is particularly important as recent figures show the proportion of men who opted for Active Surveillance increased from zero to 39 per cent between 2002 and 2006, and has likely become more common since NICE made it a standard treatment option in 2008*.. Scientists at The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) and The Royal Marsden Hospital used a ...
Presentations at the 4th IMPAKT Breast Cancer Conference. New findings presented at Europes leading breast cancer translational research conference this year shed new light on the many biological differences between individual breast cancers.. Focused on the biological features that make tumors more or less sensitive to important therapies, the new studies will help doctors make crucial choices about the most appropriate treatment for millions of patients.. Despite major advances in the treatment of breast cancer many patients continue to relapse and die from the disease, noted Prof Mitch Dowsett from the Royal Marsden Hospital, UK, former IMPAKT Chair. Studies presented at this years IMPAKT further emphasize the potential of biomarkers to identify new targets for developing therapy to disease that is resistant to our current treatments as well as the groups of patients most likely to respond to the new treatments. In this way we are progressively reducing the threat posed by a diagnosis of ...
