EARLY PHASE Oncology Trials

Basket, platform or umbrella adaptive trials

Whether you are considering a basket, platform or umbrella oncology trial to examine solid tumors or hematologic malignancies, move away from traditional oncology trial designs to incorporate more creative and adaptive trials
