ASCO 2018: Headlines and Highlights All eyes were on the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual conference last week in Chicago watching for the latest clinical trial updates and translational innovations that will be tomorrow’s breakthrough cancer treatments and tests. Each year, the event attracts thousands working in the cancer field. And each year, the research presented at ASCO sets the tone for the cancer community in terms of what’s hot, and what’s Read more

Immunotherapy Update: Recent Advances in CAR T-cell Therapy As a measure of its promise, chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy – where patients’ own immune cells are collected, genetically changed and used to treat their cancer – is the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Advance of the Year for 2018.[i] This approach represents an exciting innovation that has the potential to transform cancer care.[ii] CAR T-cell therapy is clinically the most advanced of Read more

Industry Trends:  AI Revolutionizes Imaging Analysis The radiology industry is embracing artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance image analysis, and it’s having a profound impact on patient care. Despite constant advances in the medical imaging space, almost one in four (23%) patients experience false positives on image readings[i]. This can lead to unnecessary invasive procedures and follow-up scans that add cost and stress for patients. And while false negatives happen less often, the impact can be Read more

The Value of Standardized Quality and Performance Metrics in Clinical Trials It’s not just tumor measurements that matter! Quality and Performance Measurements are critical too. Imaging biomarker metrics are not the only measurements that matter in oncology imaging trials. Quality and performance metrics are just as important and necessary for running a successful clinical trial with image analysis metrics as the endpoints. Biopharma organizations optimize clinical trials by operationalizing both quality and performance metrics.  Read more
