Industry and FDA experts will share how to operationalize ICH E9(R1) to design trials with clinically meaningful endpoints. Forum will include a summary from the DIA Stats Community GTQR Series, the Oncology Drug Development Working group on Estimands, and Tipping Point analysis to account for missing data.

Learning Objectives

Discuss key elements of ICH E9(R1) and GTQR; Define estimands and ongoing efforts for implementation; Identify how to apply estimands in oncology with time-to-event endpoint; Describe an overview and examples of applying tipping point analysis to explore the impact of missing data assumptions on study results, along with key considerations during the planning stage of these sensitivity analyses.
