IQVIA Collaborates with Cancer Researchers to Advance Use of Real World Evidence

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 21 settembre 2019

IQVIA™ (NYSE:IQV) is proud to announce its collaboration with Friends of Cancer Research in a cross-industry effort to advance acceptance and drive future uses of real world evidence (RWE). This research helps confirm that clinical benefits seen for therapies in clinical trials were consistent with the benefits of those treatments within real world settings. RWE comprises dynamic data including assets such as EMR, hospital, pharmacy, and claims sources, as well as genomics, mobile health, and patient reported outcomes. The project is part of a Friends of Cancer Research initiative that is working to demonstrate the application of real world evidence in oncology research. As part of this project, a recent study involving six research centers in the U.S. followed a common protocol to assess real world endpoints among cancer patients, including overall survival, time to next treatment, time to treatment discontinuation, time to progression and progression-free survival. Results from the collaborative project, An Exploratory Analysis of Real-World End Points for Assessing Outcomes Among Immunotherapy-Treated Patients With Advanced Non–Small-Cell Lung Cancer, were recently published in JCO Clinical Cancer Informatics. Researchers used non-identified patient data from assets such as administrative claims and electronic health records to assess real world endpoints and found that they were generally consistent with each other and with outcomes observed in randomized clinical trials.

scuola-digitale-casnati-como-800x500_cHarmonised EU entry and residence rules that will make it easier and more attractive for students and researchers from third countries to study or do research at EU universities are up for a final vote in Strasbourg on Wednesday. The new rules also have provisions to clarify and improve conditions for non-EU interns, volunteers, school pupils and au pairs, so as to facilitate cultural exchanges.
An informal agreement on the new rules was reached with Council in November last year.
