Statistical designs in Early Phase Oncology

Nonparametric and Algorithm-Based Designs to Calculate MTD

Traditional design

  • Design without dose de-escalation
  • Design with dose de-escalation

Accelerated Titration Design

  • Rapid acceleration phase
  • Intra-patient dose escalation phase
  • Assessment of dose-toxicity relationship

Bayesian Algorithm-Based Designs

  • Toxicity posterior intervals (TPI)
  • Beta-binomial model (BBM)
  • Isotonic Designs

Navitas Life Sciences will help streamline the information overload that exists about managing clinical trials, seiving through with clarity and objective insights to provide actionable recommendations for greater cost and time efficiency.
