The pharmaceutical industry is increasingly turning to Bayesian methods in early phase trials in an attempt to improve efficiency and enhance decision making. One reason for this growing interest is the ability of Bayesian methods to leverage relevant external information, be this historical data or expert opinion. This 1-day scientific meeting provides an opportunity to learn about some of the main techniques for incorporating historical data into study analyses using different discounting methods, and for eliciting expert prior information in situations where no or limited historical data are available.
Further updates and exact timings to the programme will be forthcoming.
Nicky Best (GSK): Prior elicitation in practice: early experiences with eliciting expert beliefs to enhance decision making in drug development
Nelson Kinnersley (Roche): Practical Considerations when Eliciting Expert Beliefs for Clinical Trial Design
Nelson will share experiences gained from conducting elicitation sessions in the clinical trial domain. Aspects of preparation, training, conducting and documenting the outcomes will be described.
Tony O’Hagan (Sheffield University): Where do we need expert judgment in drug development? ... Everywhere.
Kate Ren (Sheffield University): Elicitation in clinical trial planning: time-to-event data
Beat Neuenschwander (Novartis): Using Co-Data in Early Phase Clinical Trials: Practical and Methodological Aspects
