ClearTrial to Chair Session at DIA 45th Annual Meeting on "Effective Operational Planning for Adaptive Clinical Trials"
Date:6/2/2009

ClearTrial will lead panel of adaptive trial experts offering practical guidelines for designing and implementing adaptive studies. As adaptive clinical trials become more prevalent, their operational planning challenges often remain overlooked in the clinical development process. Adaptive trials place a greater burden on the initial trial design, ranging from understanding the potential for changes in resource allocations to the need for more accurate simulations.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 2, 2009 -- ClearTrial (www.cleartrial.com), a leading provider of clinical trial software for clinical trial operations planning, budgeting, and outsourcing, announced today that Molly Blake-Michaels, Director, Clinical Services, will chair a panel of adaptive trial design experts on the topic of "Effective Operational Planning for Adaptive Clinical Trials" at the DIA 45th Annual Meeting. Held at the San Diego Convention Center, June 21-25, 2009, the meeting will bring together the biggest names from industry, regulatory, and academia to instruct on the issues affecting global drug discovery and development.

As adaptive clinical trials become more prevalent, their operational planning challenges often remain overlooked in the clinical development process. Adaptive trials place a far greater burden on the initial trial design, ranging from understanding the potential for changes in resource allocations and demands in areas such as biostatistics and drug supply, to the need for more accurate simulations of differing trial scenarios and their operational elements.

During this session, the panel of experts will examine these challenges and provide practical design and implementation guidelines for adaptive trials, including:

*Operational best practices for more successful adaptive trials
*Improving budgeting and forecasting accuracy
*IT considerations, including interactive voice response, electronic data capture, and upfront database design
*Impact of adaptive trial designs on drug supply

Blake-Michaels brings more than 20 years of clinical operations experience to the DIA session, with extensive experience in the strategic planning and execution of clinical development programs across a wide variety of therapeutic areas. Before joining ClearTrial, she worked for pharmaceutical companies such as Abbott Labs, Fujisawa, TAP, Hospira, and Ovation, as well as one of the largest clinical research organizations. Blake-Michaels has authored over 50 clinical study protocols that included adaptive studies, several investigator brochures and FDA briefing books, and multiple NDA summary documents. As an independent clinical research consultant, she prepared clients for FDA Advisory Committee meetings and post-acquisition portfolio reviews, and planned and managed numerous studies, including a REMS-required patient registry.
