1 PRO-CTCAE Face-To-Face Meeting #2 Advancing the Science of Adverse Symptom Monitoring in Cancer Treatment Trials Ethan Basch, M.D. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center PROJECT OVERVIEW May 24, 2010 National Cancer Institute

2 Outline 1.Introductions 2.Project background 3.Progress to date 4.Goals of the day

3 Introductions

4 Background “A PRO is any report of the status of a patient’s health condition that comes directly from the patient, without interpretation of the patient’s response by a clinician or anyone else” Drugs/GuidanceComplianceR egulatoryInformation/Guidance s/UCM pdfz

5 Background PROs are standard in multiple settings – Symptom efficacy evaluation in clinical trials – HRQL – Patient satisfaction – Patient preferences But not standard for adverse symptom reporting

6 Patient Experiences Symptom Clinician Interprets Symptom Chart Representation of Symptom Data Manager Interpretation of Symptom Research Database Current Model for Adverse Symptom Reporting in Cancer Trials

7 Patient Experiences Symptom Research Database Patient direct reporting of symptoms (1)

8 Patient Experiences Symptom Research Database Clinician Patient direct reporting of symptoms (2)

9 Patient Experiences Symptom Research Database Clinician Assign attribution; initiate expedited reporting Patient direct reporting of symptoms (4)

10 Patient Experiences Symptom Research Database Clinician Assign attribution; initiate expedited reporting Enhance clinical care Patient direct reporting of symptoms (5)

11 Basch: NEJM, 2010 Fromme: JCO, 2004 Stromgren: Acta Anesth, 2001 Weingart: Arch Intern Med, 2005 Pakhomov: Am J Man Care, 2008 Sprangers, Acta Oncologica, 2000 Clinicians systematically downgrade symptoms compared with patients

12 Patient adverse symptom reports better correlate with functional status than clinician reports Basch: JNCI, 2009

13 Clinician CTCAE Reporting is Unreliable N=393 Seen by 1 st clinician in office, then 2 nd clinician ~15 minutes later Atkinson: SBM, 2010

14 PROs Better Identify SAEs Early NCCTG 9741: Phase III trial comparing regimens for metastatic colorectal cancer Closed after 841/1,125 patients enrolled due to unexpected excess of early deaths in Arm 1 (“IFL”) – Associated with “GI syndrome” including severe diarrhea Diarrhea reporting: – Clinicians reported CTCAE each cycle (diarrhea required) – Patients reported diarrhea via in HRQL every other cycle Rothenberg: JCO, 2001

15 Clinician-Reported Diarrhea Dueck: Unpublished Data, 2010

16 Patient-Reported Diarrhea Dueck: Unpublished Data, 2010

17 Patient vs. Clinician Diarrhea in Arm 1 (IFL) Dueck: Unpublished Data, 2010

18 Development of the Patient-Reported Outcomes version of the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (PRO-CTCAE) Initiated October 2008 NCI Contract HHSN C

19 Mission Develop a system for patient self- reporting of adverse symptoms in cancer trials which is widely accepted and used; generates useful data for investigators, regulators, clinicians and patients; and is compatible with existing adverse event reporting software systems

21 Task-Based Project Task 1: White paper and survey Task 2: Item development Task 3: Cultural literacy Task 4: Cognitive interviews Task 5: Technology development Task 6: Usability testing Task 7: Validation study Task 8: Feasibility study Task 9: Educational materials Done Ongoing

22 Logistics Multidisciplinary committee for each task – NCI representatives – FDA representatives as appropriate – Patient advocates – Methodological expertise – Clinical expertise Regular web-enabled teleconferences – Digitally recorded – Documentation on Wiki

25 Goals of the Day Project update – Information exchange Discuss future directions and challenges 1.Feasibility/implementation/dissemination 2.Methodological/analytic issues Demonstrating does not generate noise 3.Technology development Between-visit reporting Integration with other systems 4.Regulatory issues
