To improve patient centricity in clinical development, we need to move past ‘gut-feeling’ and towards a data-led approach

Clinical development has faced several years of disruption from recent global events, from the pandemic to the ongoing war in Ukraine and now a looming economic crisis. Given the scale of such events, it’s more important than ever to be able to accurately predict outcomes for clinical trials and minimize patient burden and R&D costs. This requires moving from a perception-led approach to a data-led approach. It means learning from the past and present by simulating the future. And designing smarter trials that lead to faster cures.

Enabling Patient Centricity by Improving Diversity in Clinical Development

Our founder and CEO, Dr Gen Li was recently invited for a discussion with Xtelligent Healthcare Media, to explore our recent data around diversity in clinical trials. The conversation raised some interesting questions about diversity and decentralization in clinical trials. We’ve been reflecting on the issues raised in the discussion, and the strategies the clinical development industry can take to ensure patients who are enrolled in trials are representative of the patients who will receive the drug in the real-world.

Constructing a digital twin for Cytokine Release Syndrome patients following CAR-T therapy

This year marked Phesi’s first attendance as an exhibitor at ASCO, the annual meeting of professionals and exhibitors, held by the American Society of Clinical Oncology. At the event, we announced the news that Phesi has created a new digital twin for Cytokine Release Syndrome (CRS) patients following Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR)-T therapy, based on our analysis of 5,473 CAR-T treated patients. The news opened up some insightful conversations at the event and has created opportunities to fundamentally transform clinical research.

Participants in breast cancer clinical trials are getting younger. What does this mean for the future of clinical trial design?

This month, Phesi’s data revealed some fundamental insights into the changing landscape of clinical trials. Our analysis of more than 2.5 million breast cancer patients found that since 2014, the number of women younger than 60 years of age participating in clinical trials has increased dramatically, from 30% to 90%. Our analysis has paved the way for some well overdue conversations about patient centricity in clinical trials as we reflect on what this finding means for trial sponsors.
