Compliance and Modernisation

The new ICH Good Clinical Practice (GCP) E6 Addendum Revision 2 (E6 R2) is the biggest amendment of the international guideline for over 20 years.

The Promise and Challenge of Adaptive Design in Oncology Trials

Medpace

Clinical oncology trials are more complex and time consuming than those in any other therapeutic area and failure rates are frustratingly high. Given the urgent need for new oncologic therapies, sponsors are eager to find more effective ways to conduct clinical research.
