      • Data Science at work: Stories from our consulting practice - An IASCT Social Event

        The biopharmaceutical and healthcare industries now collect more data than ever before due to advances in the variety of information sources combined with the ability to store vast quantities of diverse data, but how do we make sense of it all? Sophisticated computational techniques have been developed to analyze data, but unlocking its full value requires gaining deep insights into the right questions. This talk will present a few case studies from the speaker's consulting practice and expertise in experimental design and data analytics, illustrating how answering the right questions matters most, and that statistical modeling techniques remain at the heart of data science. This session is the first Social Event being organized by IASCT and hosted by Cytel Statistical Software & Services Private Limited. This fast paced 45 minute talk session followed by a time of interaction is a great opportunity to network and connect with industry experts.

      • Deep dive into Regulatory submissions – role of Programmer / Statistician

        Regulatory submissions are very important milestones for pharmaceutical organizations/sponsors post completion of analysis and reporting of any clinical trial that documents the safety and efficacy data of their new innovative medicinal products. In order to accelerate and shorten the time from lab to market and bring clinical benefits to patients faster, while ensuring patient safety and optimizing research investments, we require quality regulatory submissions. This would also speed up regulatory agencies’ review, evaluation and approval of new products. eCTD (electronic Common Technical Document) is a standard required format to submit all the clinical research and development data of a new investigational product to the Health Authorities. In addition to individual clinical study reports, sponsors require to pool safety and efficacy data from individual clinical studies, prepare, and submit Integrated Summary of Safety (ISS) and Integrated Summary of Efficacy (ISE) reports into CTD for product benefit-risk evaluation. After a regulatory submission, there are usually Health Authority Questions (HAQs) on data and sponsors may need to explore/investigate individual or pooled study data, reports and provide responses quickly back to the HA. After review of submitted dossier, the HA may decide to further evaluate the product through Advisory Committee (AdCom) meeting discussions before their decision on product approval. Sponsors may have to prepare additional exploratory analyses for any potential questions from the AdCom meetings. For any regulatory submission, statistical programmers and statisticians play key roles in the preparation of the submission deliverables and also planning and generating ISS/ISE reports, responding to HA questions and performing exploratory analyses for AdCom meetings. This workshop will aim to discuss various statistical activities required for regulatory submissions in multiple therapeutic/disease areas with case studies/examples, including roles and responsibilities of statisticians and statistical programmers. This will also delve into common challenges in planning and generating the reports including electronic submission requirement per CDISC compliance.

      • PSI Scientific Committee Webinar: Statistical Challenges in Analytical Comparability and Biosimilarity Assessment

        This webinar will discuss statistical requirements for the assessment of analytical comparability and similarity assessments, for example between biosimilars and reference products or before and after manufacturing changes. This topic has been the subject of a recent EMA reflection paper and an EFSPI working group. New strategies are proposed as an alternative to mean comparisons and include the assessment of ranges, inferential approaches or the use of Bayesian methods.

      • Workshop on Python Language

        Python as a high-level programming language is a fast growing programming tool. The main strength of Python is its ability to connect with other software as well as hardware modules. It is especially powerful in its implementation of machine learning modules and handling big data. Its usefulness and popularity can be assessed through the available 119948 additional packages which almost ensure that a beginner will rarely need to write detailed codes. Python being open source is free and taking a decision to learn or switch to it is only a matter of adaptation and has no cost implications. Python specialized packages such as clinical_trials, scikit-survival 0.3, and lifelines are handy for using survival analysis methods. Bayesian analysis in Python is carried out using packages such as BayesPy and pymc3. This interactive workshop will be conducted by Dr. Vikram Pudi from IIIT, Hyderabad and Mr. V Ashwin from GSK, Bangalore. The workshop will begin with an introduction to basics of Python and move to concepts such as, for loops, functions, if-while, lists, trees, arrays and dictionaries etc. The workshop will be interspersed with examples and exercises which are generic in nature and some which are from the clinical domain. At the end of the workshop, end users should have a good understanding of the potential of Python and how it can be used in some of the day to activities such as validation, simple number crunching besides others.

      • Adaptive Designs

        Adaptive designs play an increasingly important role in clinical drug development.Such designs use accumulating data of an ongoing trial to guide how to modify design aspects without undermining the validity and integrity of the trial. Such designs have the potential to increase the efficiency of the clinical study while enhancing the overall probability of success of a compound via a better optimization of the dose, endpoint or the patient population that is most likely to benefit. This workshop will lay out the key statistical and operational principles related to the use of adaptive designs and describe the key types of adaptations that commonly used in the biopharmaceutical industry. Examples of the application of adaptive designs in the early exploratory and late stage confirmatory stage will be provided.

        This workshop will introduce participants to the Bayesian philosophy of statistical inference. The key ingredients of the Bayesian approach, i.e. quantifying uncertainty about states of nature, information provided by the data and synthesizing the two to obtain information about unknown parameters given the data will be described. Applications of the Bayesian methodology to early and late-phase clinical development will be discussed using examples, to show how the flexibility of the Bayesian method can allow for designing clinical trials with desirable properties, and making meaningful inferences based on current and past studies.
