Master Protocols test multiple therapies in one indication, one therapy for multiple indications, or both. They also allow for discontinuation or addition of treatment arms and the concept known as platform trial. Master Protocols can significantly improve the efficiency of drug development when appropriately designed and implemented. In this session we will discuss how to manage Master Protocols design and implementation complexities. We will present one case study and then follow-up with novel approaches that focus on the confirmatory stage of development.
Learning Objective :

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Understand essential elements of Master Protocols
  • Recognize opportunities for application of Mater Protocols
  • Understand and apply new approaches and trends in design of Master Protocols
