TitleWorkshop on single-arm trials in oncology
Date30/06/2016 - 30/06/2016
LocationEuropean Medicines Agency, London, UK
SummarySituations in which a medicine shows significant anti-cancer activity in an area where patients have no treatment option or where the conduct of standard trials with a comparative arm is difficult, such as in rare cancers or selected populations for example, will be considered. Workshop participants will discuss experience gained so far with marketing authorisations based on single-arm trials data, the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches, and opportunities from data sharing initiatives. They will also explore the views of various stakeholders groups and discuss the need for further regulatory guidance with the ultimate aim of optimising the development of new cancer treatments in these situations.
