Adaptive Design Clinical Trials
ACTA are delighted to welcome back Adaptive Trial design expert Scott Berry to provide an overview on the FDA guidance for adaptive clinical trials.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or Agency) is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry entitled “Adaptive Designs for Clinical Trials of Drugs and Biologics.” This document provides guidance to sponsors and applicants submitting investigational new drug applications (INDs), new drug applications (NDAs), biologics license applications (BLAs), or supplemental applications on the appropriate use of adaptive designs for clinical trials to provide evidence of the effectiveness and safety of a drug or biologic. The guidance describes the basic principles for designing, conducting, and reporting the results from an adaptive clinical trial. The draft guidance will replace the 2010 draft guidance for industry entitled “Adaptive Design Clinical Trials for Drugs and Biologics.”
