Oncology Clinical Trials – The Paradigm Shift of Basket Trials: Key Considerations, Upcoming Webinar Hosted by Xtalks
Date:4/17/2019

Clinical trials of new cancer treatments have historically focused on disease type by tumor location: breast cancer, brain tumor, colon cancer and so on. With advances in medical oncology and genomic characterization of tumors, we are now able to test new therapies that target a single biomarker in multiple tumor types by conducting “basket trials.” This ability has created a paradigm shift in oncology trials.

In basket trials, cancers with differing histologies are pooled and the common element is a singular genetic mutation or protein alteration. The biomarker may be a protein or a DNA alteration. The tumors of interest are grouped in baskets for the analysis. The basket trial tests a drug that targets a common biologic process. Because of the different tumors involved, the recruiting physicians may represent many different areas of specialization.

Join Julia Lawrence, DO, Senior Medical Director and Head Oncologist at Synteract in a live session on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at 11am EDT(4pm BST/UK) to learn about:

  • The differences between basket trials and historical oncology trials
  • Key parameters that should be considered during trial design
  • Understand the biomarker and the methodology used to test for it
  • How adaptive and flexible operational conduct from an experienced CRO study team allows for critical readiness to respond to inevitably shifting outcomes
