How synthetic control arms are changing clinical trials

Synthetic Control Arms

Clinical trials are involved, expensive, and have been done largely the same way for decades but with today’s technology all that can change.

With drawn-out timelines and billions in investments, traditional clinical trial methods are increasingly a barrier to cost-efficient and timely drug development. Synthetic data is addressing this head-on by harnessing historical clinical trials and real-world data to create simulation scenarios and optimise protocol design.

On Thursday 17th February at 2:30 pm GMT / 3:30 pm CET / 9:30 am EST join us as Sanjay Jaiswal, Accenture Life Sciences, and Joe Donahue, Acorn AI, discuss some unique challenges and opportunities that as partners, they are seeing in the market and how they’re helping organisations apply innovative approaches and improve results.

This webinar will also explore:

  • The FDA’s stance on synthetic control arms being used in clinical trials
  • How synthetic control arms reduce patient recruitment in clinical trials
  • Managing the ‘what if’ situations when using synthetic data
