Novel Immuno-Oncology Biomarker Testing: Focus on TMB, MSI / MMR and TILs

Advances in biotechnology have enabled the development of several high throughput tools, which have led to the establishment of better biomarkers based on genome / exome profiles. Novel biomarkers, such as tumour mutation burden (TMB), microsatellite instability (MSI) / mismatch repair (MMR) deficiency, tumour infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) and certain others, are presently being investigated across

Changing Paradigms in Clinical Trials: Focus on Novel Trial Designs, Real World Evidence and Clinical Operations Management

Studies suggest that each prescription drug requires around 10 years and over USD 2.5 billion in working capital before it reaches the market. Further, it is estimated that, in the US, 40% of the pharma industry’s R&D budget is spent solely on conducting clinical trials. Estimates suggest that nearly 85% of clinical trials fail to
