On March 11, 2020 we released our seventh short video, Sharing Controls and Platform Trials . This topic is presented by Dr. Scott Berry of Berry Consultants, LLC.
Platform trials investigate multiple therapies simultaneously. By sharing infrastructure and control subjects, time and costs of trials can be reduced by up to 50%, making platform trials one of the most promising innovations in modern clinical trial design.
In this talk Dr. Scott Berry
1) Introduces platform trials, touching on infrastructure savings while emphasizing the inferential advantages.
2) Focuses on the randomization and sharing of control patients, illustrating how this sharing results in substantial sample size savings.
3) Provides a list of current therapeutic areas already utilizing platform trials, or currently planning platform trials.
4) Describes the modeling over time used in a perpetual platform, allowing the full time course of the trial to be used in inferences.
