Harness the Potential of ML Applications in Drug Development

An increased volume of data almost always yields more effective machine learning, and for those in drug development, the healthcare sector is the data equivalent of an oil reserve.

The AI Innovations for Life Science and Healthcare Summit, taking place June 13–14 in Philadelphia, will feature a dedicated AI in Life Science track to discuss use cases for machine learning in drug development and clinical trial design.

The use of machine learning in early-stage drug discovery can potentially be applied to optimize initial screening of drug compounds to predicted success rate based on biological factors. This includes R&D discovery technologies like…


Harness the Potential of AI to Leverage Healthcare Data

The sheer volume of data in the healthcare sector represents a significant opportunity for AI to prove its value. Before a health system invests in systematic computing, ML, or artificial intelligence technologies, providers should have a clear, concrete idea of how they will use these tools to improve care quality, outcomes, or efficiencies.

The AI Innovations for Life Science and Healthcare Summit, taking place June 13–14 in Philadelphia, will feature a dedicated AI in Healthcare track to discuss cases studies where machine learning and AI were employed to improve health outcomes.

Eyal Zimlichman, M.D., Deputy Director, Chief Medical Officer, and Chief Innovation…

Ingredients for a Successful Disease Awareness Campaign!

A successful disease awareness campaign will either resonate with patients about the burden of their disease or improve the way HCP educate and engage with their patients around a disease state. Educational and impactful messaging for a successful campaign requires a deep understanding of the patient’s journey and knowledge gaps about a particular disease state.

The Disease Awareness Campaigns Forum, April 4–5, in Philadelphia, will be two days for marketing, communications, and patient/HCP engagement professionals to discuss strategies for building better disease education campaigns. Here are some of the strategies the…


CROWN Congress and Proactive GCP Compliance in Applied Clinical Trials!

Check out a great article by Applied Clinical Trials, interviewing Kevin Hudziak following his recent presentation at ExL Events’ CROWN on Eli Lilly’s patient engagement initiatives. The interview was conducted by a previous CROWN presenter, Moe Alsumidaie, too!

When asked to explain changing patient behaviors, Husziak said, “Patients and patient communities/advocates are becoming empowered to take a more active role in healthcare, and the digital world is altering the way that people seek healthcare information. Patients are also self-identifying for clinical trials.”

He continued, “They are educated and knowledgeable…


Cytel at the Adaptive Clinical Trials Symposium — Download Complimentary Cytel Whitepaper: Adaptive Trial Accelerates FDA Approval

An average clinical trial can cost $60–80 million. Adaptive design allows a sponsor to modify multiple parts of a trial without incurring additional costs. Using this innovative method will present the opportunity to stipulate collected data at various intervals in order to adjust one or more detailed aspects of the study based on analysis of the data. It is proven that this approach will allow a trial to more efficiently demonstrate the effects of a drug.

Take an in-depth look at how Cytel assisted Napo Pharmaceuticals to optimize an adaptive speed and control to achieve orphan drug exclusivity protection. This…


A Message From the Chair of the Central Monitoring Summit

The Central Monitoring Summit, scheduled for March 22–23 in Philadelphia, has an outstanding list of expert presenters who will deal with the complex issues we must face while exploring the challenges, impacts, and implications of risk-based monitoring. Subjects such as the updated ICH E6 (R2) Guidelines, implementing central monitoring, and the shifting role of a CRA are just some of the topics to be addressed during this meeting. This conference presents an opportunity to examine the present status and future direction of RBM and central monitoring. You can view the full agenda here.

As conference chair of…


FDA Data Transparency: How Will Your Development Pipeline Benefit?

Frequently, new formulation approaches end up disappointing the industry because, instead of a breakthrough, they yield slow, incremental development. Is there anything on the horizon that can truly accelerate your drug pipeline? As The Washington Post reports, just a few weeks ago, FDA announced a pilot program to release more detailed study reports from clinical trials. This initiative should quickly provide drug development teams with a much larger library of information about safety and efficacy results to guide their own R&D. How is your company going to take advantage of this new program? Will the drugs you are working…
