ICTI Biostatistics Expert speaks at International Conference

July 19, 2005

Yardley, PA – July 19, 2005 – Continuing ICTI’s leadership in Adaptive Clinical Trial Design and Implementation, ICTI’s Manager of Biostatistics, Eva Miller, Ph.D., has been invited to present at the upcoming meeting of the International Society for Analysis, its Applications, and Computation (ISAAC). The 5Th annual conference, being held July 25-30, 2005 in Catania, Italy, includes a sub-session on Mathematical Biology and Medicine, in which Dr. Miller will present her talk,

“Implementation of Adaptive Randomizations for Clinical Trials.”

Because of the efficiencies they allow, adaptive trial designs are increasingly being used by both small biotechs and large pharmaceutical companies. Adaptive randomizations, a type of adaptive trial design, are especially valuable when study populations are small or when blinding of study drug/device vs. placebo is not possible. They are often used in studies of rare diseases, in oncology studies, and in medical device trials. Dr. Miller’s presentation will recount ICTI’s experience in working with clients to design and execute adaptive clinical trial designs.

Richard McCann, ICTI’s President, noted,

“Our unique combination of technologies for real-time clinical trial data capture, along with the capabilities of our sister company Clinical Trial Services (CTS) to provide state-of-the-art clinical supplies management positions ICTI to make adaptive clinical trial designs feasible. We are honored to have our capabilities and experience presented at this prestigious conference.”
