Immuno-Oncology Summit 2017 Program

Now in its fifth year, the Immuno-Oncology Summit will return to Boston again this August 28-September 1 with the goal of supporting researchers in developing the next generation of immunotherapies. Immuno-oncology researchers are changing the way we treat cancer by unleashing the immune system and achieving functional cures in some cancers.

This year’s IO Summit has been designed to give attendees a complete picture of the field and its advances with 12 conference tracks, 1 in-depth training seminar, and 4 instructional short courses. Topics include immunotherapy discovery, development, biomarkers, and translational oncology as well as emerging topic areas such as cancer vaccines, oncolytic viruses, and advances in synthetic biology techniques. Overall, this event provides a focused look at how researchers are applying new science and technology in the development of effective and safe immunotherapies.

Utilizing Big Data to Enhance Patient Recruitment

On Wednesday 22 February 2017 at 11:45 AM MDCPartners’ Strategic Analyst in Oncology, Dr Jonathan Crowther, will talk about:

Utilizing big data to enhance patient recruitment: Analyzing public information for trial feasibility and site selection

The path to clinical trial success is burdened with underperforming site selection, poor patient recruitment and frequent delays. Such barriers result in failures to meet targets and dwindling statistical significance. Comprehensive planning via a feasibility survey can alleviate these issues however, it has been suggested that the accuracy of a survey may be below 10%. As big data becomes more applicable in the clinical trial setting, capitalizing on the wealth of publicly available clinical data is essential. The clinical business intelligence platform ta-Scan semantically links trial, investigator and site information to provide a robust feasibility analysis to help address the following questions:

  • Estimation of appropriate patient cohorts
  • Key Opinion Leaders in the field
  • Competing and historic trials across the therapeutic area
  • Suitable geographic setting for a trial
  • IRB and timing issues that may affect trial start-up

Join us in London

Would you like to join us in London this month to learn more about how to leverage big data for patient recruitment or to see how our real-world data evidence solutions can help with clinical trial planning challenges? Let us know to arrange a meeting with our Technical Product Manager Kristof Geentjens and our Strategic Analyst in Oncology Dr Jonathan Crowther. Or just pop by at booth #5!

MDCPartners Innovation Partner Big Data in Precision Medicine Washington

Big Data in Precision Medicine

With ESMO 2016 coming to a close in Copenhagen, MDCPartners is getting ready for their next stop: we are this year’s Innovation Partner of the Big Data in Precision Medicine meeting, which will take place in the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C. on November 1-2, 2016.

This meeting attracts 250-300 senior executives from across the drug development sector including Big Pharma, biotech, leading solution providers, government, healthcare and academia. The meeting addresses the opportunities and challenges of big and real-world data, and how machine learning and cognitive computing can be applied in the context of drug development. View the meeting’s streams and the meeting agenda here.

Private Clinical Trial Data in the Real-World Data Context

On Tuesday November 1 at 9:30 AM, MDCPartners’ Chief Scientific Officer David Cocker will present our findings on “The value case of private pharma clinical trial data in the real-world data context”.

Real-world data (RWD) is generally the term used to refer to any data which is collected outside of randomized clinical trials (RCT). The data can be from sources including patient data from hospitals and clinicians. The premise is that RWD combined with information from RCTs can provide better research outcomes and improved healthcare.

Unfortunately, available clinical trial information data is really not that big. Often it is also dispersed and contradictory, and includes duplicates through multiple entries that are not verified and/or matched. Many transformative actions with data are frequently heralded as a big data panacea long before any analytical conclusion can be applied.

This presentation will explore the challenges faced when approaching the question of clinical trial data merging and its interoperability with public clinical trial data for creating valuable insights for study placement.

Meeting Up

ta-Scan’s data team will be present in Washington, D.C. as well to show the precision medicine experts how our clinical business intelligence software ta-Scan can leverage today’s medical big data challenges.

If you want to learn more about our software solutions, you can meet us personally during the exhibition at booth #1 or make an appointment with CSO David Cocker or Strategic Data Analyst, Oncology Jonathan Crowther.
