TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 19, 2016) - The webinar taking place on Tuesday, November 1 at 11:00 am. EDT will focus on strategic approaches to identify patients with Prodromal AD and connect them with a study site.
The free 60-minute webinar "Patient Recruitment Strategies in Prodromal Alzheimer's Disease (AD) Clinical Trials" will be led by experts from inVentiv Health, a global professional services organization designed to help the biopharmaceutical industry accelerate the delivery of much-needed therapies to market. Marie Emms, director, Clinical Trial Recruitment Services, and Robert Smith, PhD, director, Scientific Strategy, will discuss successful patient recruitment strategies for this patient population , including:
- The use of analytics and insights to create a local strategy to meet the needs of both patients and clinical research sites
- A review of the methodology and examples of outputs from previous trials that demonstrate the value an analytics and insights program can have for the Sponsor during the development of a patient recruitment strategy
- A review of psychometric screening tools and tests that aim to identify patients that will have a higher likelihood of meeting biomarker inclusion criteria
Recent advances in Alzheimer's disease (AD) research indicate that the disease has a lengthy prodromal phase that can last as long as 10-12 years, before the onset of a clinically diagnosable disease. As a result, identifying this patient population to evaluate the effects of disease modifying treatments can prove challenging and competitive.
To date, traditional strategies for the recruitment of patients with Prodromal AD have not been successful. Despite being able to reach high numbers of elderly patients with perceived memory problems, finding patients through traditional channels has often funneled large numbers of patients to websites or investigator sites who do not meet study eligibility.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...
