Adaptive designs are accepted by regulatory agencies so why aren't more sponsors using them? These trials enable sponsors to fail faster and focus effort on where they succeed. We will cover the process from protocol design to interim analysis and communication to key stakeholders for adaptations. There are too many reasons why adaptive designs should be used on more clinical trials. This session will explore those reasons and benefits.

Learning Objectives

Identify the types of adaptive trials; Describe best practices and recommendations for the protocol design phase as well as pre-study planning; Identify what communication is needed to conduct the interim analysis; Assess which stakeholders should be part of this process; Discuss how success should be defined.
