On 3 July 2017, the Academy and the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry held a joint workshop to explore oncology endpoints in research. Co-chaired by Dr David Montgomery, Pfizer, and Professor Mark Emberton FMedSci, University College London, the workshop brought together key stakeholders including industry, academia, regulators, patients, clinicians, funders and commissioners, amongst others, to discuss and identify ways to overcome the challenges associated with selecting study endpoints in oncology, and consider those outcomes that are important for clinical trial measures to be ‘fit for purpose’, now and in the future. It was envisioned that oncology would be used as an exemplar, with discussion of principles that are more widely applicable across different therapy areas.
The workshop provided opportunities to debate different perspectives (patients, industry, regulators, clinicians, payers, academics, statisticians) and address key questions around the relevance, utility and acceptability of different endpoints across a variety stakeholders. Please note that this event was by invitation only, and for further details please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
A full meeting report will be published in the coming weeks and will be available on this page and on the publications section of the website.
