In recent years, platform clinical trials have gained much attention in the pharmaceutical drug development world. Several companies and teams have made great progress toward the design and implementation of platform trials. There are many subtle and important aspects of a platform trial that must be considered and evaluated.
Inspired by an internal platform trials under design, this talk will present potential time savings in terms of reaching various milestones in the development cycle. This talk will compare the approach of two consecutive POC trials vs development in a platform clinical trial. An introduction to a R package developed for simulation of platform trials will be presented.
