Improving Outcomes in Diabetes Research

Diabetes is often referred to as an epidemic, with an estimated 415 million adults worldwide living with the condition, according to the International Diabetes Federation Diabetes Atlas – approximately 1 in 11 of the adult population (1). What’s more, this figure is expected to rise to 642 million people worldwide by 2040. With a reported 46% of people with diabetes undiagnosed, these figures are, realistically, much higher.

With so much of the population suffering, pharmaceutical companies are continuing to invest in research into this condition in a bid to bring new and improved treatments to market across the globe. With this in mind, this article will discuss the current status of diabetes clinical research. In particular, it will provide an overview of the current diabetes landscape, including the types of disease and condition management, as well as the challenges of clinical research. Putting the person with diabetes at the heart of the development process will demonstrate how sponsors can implement patient-centric electronic data capture solutions which improve the user experience and support better study outcomes.

Recommendations for Implementing Assessment Criteria Guidelines in Lymphoma and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Clinical Trials

Perceptive Informatics

Standardized assessment criteria are becoming increasingly important in obtaining valid outcomes in oncology clinical trials. While standardized criteria encourage a more uniform approach to assessing clinical trial data, they are often subject to the interpretation of the user. These differences in interpretation, while seemingly minor, can have a major impact on assessments. The most commonly used standardized criteria for lymphoma have been no exception. Differences such as minimum new lesion size, lymph node normalization size requirements, inclusion of extranodal lesions and assessment of organomegaly can have a profound effect on overall response. Additionally, heightened scrutiny of the assessment criteria used in a given protocol can lead to questions about a drug’s efficacy if not applied correctly according to regulators’ interpretation.
