Abstract title: How Much Time Is Needed To Complete Quality of Life Assessments in Oncology Trials? – Metadata Analysis

Digitalization in clinical trials introduced electronic data collection. Participants in diverse environments can use electronic devices to report their experiences with the drug by completing patient reported outcome assessments (ePROs). Quality of life (QOL) reports describe how a patient feels or functions during a treatment with a new drug. For oncology trials, QOL data is needed to prove the treatment effect and support a labeling claim.

Abstract title: Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy and falls in cancer survivors relate to digital balance and gait impairments

Standing postural sway and gait tests with body-worn inertial sensors provide a multitude of objective, digital balance and gait measures that represent several different domains controlling mobility. However, it is not clear which domains of balance or gait best reflect the impact of treatment-induced peripheral neuropathy on mobility or differentiate fall risk in cancer survivors. The aim of this study was to determine which domains of balance and gait differed between cancer survivors who reported 1) symptoms of peripheral neuropathy versus asymptomatic survivors and 2) falls in the previous 6 months versus non-fallers.
