Direct-to-Patient Trials: How IRT Plays an Important Role in Bellerophon's Direct-to-Patient Trials

As the industry strengthens its focus on patient centricity, Direct-to-Patient clinical trials have emerged as a popular trial design that have the potential to increase patient recruitment and retention. IRT plays a crucial role in the success of a Direct-to-Patient trial. Because drug supplies are being managed and shipped from distribution facilities directly to patients’ homes, a sponsor must have a high-quality system in place to accurately track the chain of custody, ensure patient-blinding and handle other logistical challenges. What You Will Learn Benefits and challenges associated with the Direct-to-Patient model Bellerophon's top considerations when implementing this trial design How IRT can equip study teams to successfully track chain of custody, ensure patient blinding, and handle logistical challenges

The randomised, double-blinded, multicentre trial intends to study sintilimab or placebo along with pemetrexed and platinum-based chemotherapy as first-line treatment to advanced or ns-NSCLC patients in China.

The trial is currently treating patients with the study drug combination in four cycles, followed by a maintenance treatment of sintilimab or placebo in combination with pemetrexed until the first occurrence of disease progression, intolerable toxicity, withdrawal of consent, death, or other specified events of the trial.

Approximately 378 patients with advanced or recurrent ns-NSCLC, who have not received previous systemic anti-tumour therapy, are expected to be enrolled in the trial.

“With sintilimab entering phase III clinical trial for lung cancer, we hope to provide more treatment options for lung cancer patients in the future.”

The patients will be randomised and included in experimental and control group in a 2:1 ratio to receive the study drugs.

Out of the total patients, 252 will be included in the sintilimab group (experimental group) and 126 in the placebo group (control group).

The trial’s primary endpoint is progression-free survival (PFS), as measured by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST v1.1), and as assessed by an Independent Radiological Review Committee (IRRC).

Innovent founder, CEO and chairman Michael Yu said: “Lung cancer has the highest morbidity and mortality among malignant tumours in China.

“With sintilimab entering phase III clinical trial for lung cancer, we hope to provide more treatment options for lung cancer patients in the future.”

Sintilimab, a fully human anti-PD-1 antibody, has been developed by Innovent in partnership with Eli Lilly and Company in China.
