Developing OA Drugs in Times of ”Rapidly Progressive OA”

Developing OA Drugs in Times of ”Rapidly Progressive OA”

Developing Osteoarthritis Drugs in Times of ”Rapidly Progressive Osteoarthritis”

Join us to discuss rapidly progressive osteoarthritis (RPOA) and challenges of designing and executing Osteoarthritis clinical trials.

Link to the content

The design of osteoarthritis (OA) clinical trials investigating novel OA drug therapeutics has always been challenging. In this webinar, we want to discuss a particular challenge of accounting for patients who may develop rapidly progressive osteoarthritis (RPOA). The etymology and epidemiology of RPOA are not yet well characterised. We nowadays know that the dramatic radiologic manifestations of RPOA can lead to diagnostic confusion with other arthropathies, infection, and osteonecrosis.

Design of a successful clinical trial must incorporate an imaging strategy that would allow to exclude patients who are at risk of developing RPOA, as this would have profound implications on the trial outcomes and safety of patients. It is therefore imperative to understand RPOA and how imaging can assist in defining patient eligibility prior to enrolment as well as monitoring patient safety during clinical trials.

Key discussion points:

  • Regulatory perspective and future directions in knee OA drug development
  • Observational radiographic features that may lead to prompt diagnosis of RPOA
  • Design of clinical trials of osteoarthritis and use of imaging in identifying RPOA

Presenter: Prof. Mikael Boesen:
Professor of musculoskeletal imaging, hands-on radiologist with 20 years of international experience in clinical research in inflammatory and degenerative joint diseases. Prof. Boesen is a global PI, speakers and author of 80+ articles and book chapters. He brings together cross-therapeutic area expertise and helps drug developers to think outside the box when it comes to designing clinical trials and selection imaging strategy.

Presenter: Dr. Lee Simon:

He served as a director of FDA division for of Analgesic, Anti-inflammatory and Ophthalmologic Drug Products and currently advises many biotech and pharmaceutical companies on designing impactful clinical programs.

Moderator: Dr. Olga Kubassova:

Power of Modern Trial Infrastructure for Accelerated Drug Development

Power of Modern Trial Infrastructure for Accelerated Drug Development

AI and Cloud – Power of Modern Trial Infrastructure for Accelerated Drug Development

Speed, quality, and cost of drug development depend on the robust clinical trial design, targeted patient selection and optimal efficacy assessments. Imaging is increasingly used in clinical trials to improve success rate and reveal early evidence of treatment impact.

IAG, Image Analysis Group is a leading medical imaging expert company driving the use of quantitative imaging as an early evidence for drug development. We improve speed and reproducibility of radiological reviews with Computer-Aided workflows and bring smart often AI driven methodologies to extract the full spectrum of information from medical images. Thus, giving biotech or pharma companies early powerful efficacy data in clinical trials.

In this webinar, we will present our proprietary cloud-based platform DYNAMIKA and show how it can increase efficiencies of traditional radiological reviews while integrating the best of advanced quantitative image analysis in clinical trials.

We will show how the flow of an imaging part of a clinical trial improves when operational teams can take advantage of automated data de-identification, built-in audit trail and notification system, automated quality control, and seamless workflows for all trial stakeholders.

Our therapeutic experts will show case studies of early drug evidence, trial enrichment and advanced treatment efficacy assessments from phase I-IV trials in oncology, neurology, and rheumatology.

This webinar will be interesting to those who are responsible for clinical trials operations, design of clinical trial protocols, imaging biomarker selection, patient recruitment and overall success of clinical programs.

Drug Development in Rheumatoid Arthritis: Black and White Answers to Tough Questions

We picked 3 hot topics and invited 3 outstanding speakers to join a live webinar focused on the drug development in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA):

–    Unmet needs in RA drug development: do we still need new therapies?
–    Trial design: is clinical score enough?
–    Earlier decisions in RA drug development: how imaging and technology can support your clinical programs?

If you are interested in a replay, please reach out to imaging.experts@ia-grp.com

About the Webinar

While the rheumatoid arthritis drug pipeline is robust with over 240 molecules under study, many will drop off through natural attrition. It has been shown that only 40% of patients are ACR70 responders, which indicates a need for more effective treatment options.

The drug development process is complex, with greater focus being put on personalization of therapeutic strategies, both in the choice of molecules and their place in a patient treatment pathway.

This webinar will be a live discussion on several hot topics.

The moderator and the speakers will start with discussing the need for new therapies and what new therapies mean for the market.

The second topic will be focused on trial design, remission as an outcome, patient inclusion, trial enrichment and patient phenotyping.

The third topic is the use of imaging biomarkers and technology to achieve earlier decisions on treatment efficacy and practical aspects of RA clinical trials.
