Oct. 31, 2011 - PRLog -- Attendees of this meeting will hear recent breakthroughs in the molecular biology of cancer that have led to an unprecedented number of new targets in oncology drug development. Many of these are already advancing to the clinical stages, making oncology clinical trials the most prevalent across therapeutic areas. The success of an oncology trial depends on many factors, the most important being the quality of pre-clinical data that provides a testable hypothesis. Biostatistical, scientific, organizational, regulatory, ethical and economic ingredients are equally important for advancing clinical development of a drug.
