Webinar Date/Time: Tuesday December 6th, 2022 at 11am EST | 8am PST | 4pm GMT | 5pm CET
With FDA’s initiative, Project Optimus, the landscape of phase I oncology is changing. In this webinar, IQVIA oncology experts will highlight major principles for dose optimization and review examples of recent FDA approvals that illustrate how investigation of dose- and exposure-response relationships and use of randomized dose trials can support dose optimization.
Dose optimization is essential to ensure that patients receive therapies that maximize efficacy while minimizing toxicity. Poor dose optimization can have negative consequences for patients, most notably, toxicities leading to poor quality of life, and inability to tolerate a given regimen. Although there has been some progress, dose optimization through randomized dose evaluation in oncology trials is not routinely conducted.
