Clario keeps pace with advances in oncology imaging and stays ahead of demanding timelines and budgets.
Recent advances in personalized medicine and immunotherapies have driven an increase in immuno-oncologic drug development. Clario offers detailed understanding of established assessment criteria as well as extensive expertise in the application of several different approaches including iRECIST and irRECIST.
The association of many oncology drugs have cardiotoxic side effects, studies of compounds in development oftentimes include cardiac safety endpoints, such as cardiac imaging (Echo and cardiac MR) as well as electrophysiology (ECG) and hemodynamic (BP), to define the potential cardiac safety signal and benefit-risk considerations. Clario has extensive expertise in planning and supporting successful cardiac safety studies to assess the risk of oncology treatments early in clinical development.
Clario senior management continues to take an active leadership role in the establishment of processes, methods and counsel that shape new regulatory guidance for imaging endpoints. Our experts have a detailed understanding of Imaging Review Charter requirements and protocol development, adhering to recommendations and feedback from the FDA, EMA, and other international regulatory agencies. We have substantial skill in supporting regulatory submissions and inspections.
