Michael Sweeting will present his paper ‘Escalation strategies for combination therapy Phase I trials’ which was published in the PSI journal Pharmaceutical Statistics and co-authored with Adrian Mander.
Ying Yuan, from the biostatistics department in the University of Texas, will then introduce the paper ‘A Bayesian dose finding design for oncology clinical trials of combinational biological agents’, which was co-authored with Chunyan Cai and Yuan Ji and published in the Society’s Series C journal.
After both presentations (each due to take 20-25 minutes), lines will be opened for a discussion chaired by Professor James Carpenter, head of the Medical Statistics Department at the School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, who will also be joined by Tony Sabin from biotechnology firm Amgen.
