Phase 0 Key Points Are Phase 0 studies feasible? ¬Phase 0 recruitment is feasible but depends on patient altruism and prior physician-patient relationship. ¬Statistical methodology is more challenging in Phase 0 trials, which involve novel PD endpoints and small number of samples. ¬Require additional up-front investment in imaging or assay development, in addition to that needed for standard PK.
Phase 0 Key Points In what circumstances are Phase 0 studies applicable for early drug development? In what circumstances are Phase 0 studies applicable for early drug development? ¬Phase 0 trials provide the opportunity to develop PD assays measuring target function in tumors in humans u Allows for the assessment of target inhibition as a potential primary endpoint in subsequent trials u Develop assay proceduresfrom tissue acquisition to the assay itselfthat actually work in patients in the clinic
Phase 0 Key Points Does conducting a Phase 0 study save clinical development time? Does conducting a Phase 0 study save clinical development time? ¬Critical question is timewill take years to assess ¬Likely that imaging-driven PD will make a major impact soon
