Access Video Here

Master protocols and adaptive platform trials are being heralded as potential pathways to more efficient, less expensive clinical trials that can move effective drugs and biologics to patients more quickly. Are these innovative approaches potentially effective solutions to the range of issues that plague the field of drug/biologics development? What are the pros and cons for the various stakeholders of creating and participating in these multi-sector partnerships? What lessons have been learned by those who have launched existing trials using these models? What outcomes have they achieved thus far – and what might the future hold?
