Clinical Trial Data Analysis Engagement Helped a Leading Global Pharma Company to Determine Chance of Disease Relapse – A Quantzig’s Success Story

Aug 23, 2019

The client is a leading global pharma company who had conducted clinical trials in partnership with more than 10 different hospitals for patients suffering from melanoma. They approached Quantzig to leverage its clinical trials data analysis expertise to compare the two treatment groups for disease-free interval and survival using advanced statistical analysis techniques.

For companies in the pharmaceutical industry, it is difficult to analyze the vast amounts of raw, unstructured patient data. Clinical trial data analysis requires tested statistical methods that have to be specified with the regulatory authorities before the trial even begins. With nearly 80% of clinical trials failing to meet enrollment timelines, pharmaceutical companies need a more efficient approach to improve their data analysis capability. This is where data analytics tools can help. Clinical trial data analysis done using data analytics tools can help pharmaceutical companies to understand the epidemiology landscape and develop an effective enrollment forecast. This can further help in understanding and analyzing the accuracy of patient data and provide a complete view of the patient journey.

Business Challenge

The client, a global pharma company, conducted clinical trials for patients who were operated and were on medication therapy A or B for more than 2 years. Throughout the trial, the patient’s status, laboratory parameters, vital signs, skin examinations, and other parameters were constantly monitored and tracked to achieve the following goals:

  • Identify the recurrence rate of the disease
  • Analyze factors impacting survival rate[spacer height=”20px”]

Despite employing quality control measures to analyze the completeness and accuracy of patient data,  the pharma client was not satisfied with the outcomes.. They wanted to compare the two treatment groups for disease-free interval and survival using clinical trial data analysis techniques, for which they approached Quantzig.
