International Clinical Trials

Shredding Paper

The informed consent process represents the keystone in a
clinical trial, the space where science meets the patient. As
healthcare began to globalise in the 1990s and 2000s, process
and presentation flexibility became crucial. With technology
spreading around the globe, the defects and difficulties in the
use of text-only documents, reported internationally for 30
years, became even more apparent. Patients worldwide decreed
that text-only paper consent forms were confusing, hard to
and sometimes in different languages. Patients frequently
breezed through paper forms without truly understanding
the material and were surprised by aspects of the trial once it
started. This led to frustration and subjects often dropped out
of the consent process or the trial itself.

With the globalisation of clinical research, creating a flexible
system that works across international boundaries, yet respects
the differences of countries and regions, is imperative.

York Health Economics Consortium offers a new health utilities training course

Cost-utility analysis is a requirement for NICE health technology appraisals and is being increasingly used in other contexts and countries. Health utilities, a crucial component of cost-utility analysis, capture the relative change in health-related quality of life resulting from a treatment. As such, health utility can be a key driver of the cost-effectiveness ratio. Obtaining health utility values that are suitable for your economic evaluation, however, may not always be straight forward.

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.
