The Progress of Real-World Data and Artificial Intelligence

Life science companies are increasingly investing in real-world data (RWD) and exploring advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) to help improve throughput. There are some early and encouraging signs that RWD and AI can help companies transform study design, trial operations, and patient care by improving efficiency, lowering costs, and identifying patterns, with the goal of improving outcomes for patients. However, broad adoption of AI-based solutions remains challenged by data sharing and data privacy issues. Limited collaboration across companies and sectors can also impede the adoption of innovative approaches. The life science industry must address these areas to recognise the potential of AI.

Helping to Accelerate Clinical Trials and Improve Quality

Uninformed clinical trial protocols can result in costly amendments and limit patient participation. Consider that about 67% of protocols have at least one amendment, and nearly half of these amendments are avoidable. The median cost to implement an amendment could reach $535,000 for a Phase III protocol (1). Patient populations that fail to approximate the real world may also limit access to new medicines and diminish their value (2). Life science companies and health authorities are recognising the untapped potential of RWD – a rapidly expanding source of digital health information – to help inform clinical trial study design and protocol development. Additionally, continuous monitoring through mobile devices and sensors are enabling novel endpoint development. As the technology begins to mature, we start to better understand its value and utility.

Pandemic respiratory vaccine clinical trials: a departure from business as usual

ICON plc

Around the world, the “V” words are on everyone’s lips: Virus and Vaccines. In response to the urgent need for a vaccine for COVID-19, researchers are, at time of publication, running 500+ clinical trials (and counting) on a number of antivirals, antibodies and vaccines. Promising possibilities range from novel new drugs/vaccines, repurposing treatments currently indicated for HIV, Ebola and malaria, to monoclonal antibodies and immune serum.
