Impact of E9 Addendum to Chrissie Fletcher Industry (one of two EFPIA representatives on the ICH E9 Working Group) PSI/EFSPI 1-day scientific meeting 28-Sept-15 International Conference on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use 1
Disclaimer (Chrissie Fletcher) The views expressed herein represent those of the presenter and do not necessarily represent the views or practices of Amgen, the views of the other Industry representatives on the ICH E9 working group, or the views of the general Pharmaceutical Industry. 2 Agenda
Impact of the new E9 addendum to Industry Feedback from EFSPI Statistics Leaders discussion High level results from international E9 survey Key issues debated in E9 WG (thus far!)
How addendum will align with E9 Important questions for you to consider Q&A 3 Impact to E9 addendum to Industry The new framework will o
Improve the way we design and plan clinical trials - Objectives Estimand(s) Primary analyses Sensitivity analyses o o o Optimise the way we conduct clinical trials - Data collection, patient follow-up Perform primary analyses aligned to objectives - Handling of non-adherence
Perform sensitivity analyses aligned to primary analyses - Robustness of estimand(s) 4 EFSPI Statistics Leaders feedback Potential bias seems to be underpinning the estimand discussion. o
contextualise in the rationale Range of examples would be appreciated to better help understanding the differences between estimands (incl. use of graphics) Defining what the role of sensitivity analyses is would be helpful The involvement of clinicians is very important as it is understood this is not just a statistical issue 5
International E9 survey Conducted May-June 2015 o Thanks to those who completed it! Collect views of current practice on what: o o o o
o Treatment effects are being estimated in clinical trials Awareness of relevant guidelines Techniques to minimise missing data Analysis choices for primary and sensitivity analyses Comments (lots of them!) 6 E9 survey demographics (N=1305)
10 Treatment effect being estimated in a primary analysis outcome/event trials 11 Treatment effect being estimated in a primary
analysis symptom trials 12 Try to collect data for patients who stop treatment but remain on study 13 Try to contact patients to prevent lost to follow up
14 Steps taken to prevent missing data 15 How much primary endpoint data attributed to study dropout
16 Methods for handling missing data in primary analyses 17 What influences your choice for handling missing data in primary analyses 18
Key issues debated in E9 WG Distinguishing between the various estimands Areas of E9 that would benefit from further clarification Developing laymans explanations Sharing case studies from all regions and how the choice of estimand contributed to regulatory decision making Exploring methodologies that align to each category
of estimand technical appendix 19 How addendum will align with E9 The addendum cannot conflict with any principles described in E9 The proposed framework may position some of the existing principles in E9 in a different way
There may be areas of E9 that require further clarification to fully align the addendum In the spirit of E9 the addendum will not be recommending statistical methods 20 Important questions for you to consider 1. 2.
3. 4. Does the definition of an estimand make sense? Does the proposed framework in the E9 addendum make sense? Do you have any concerns with the framework? How much of a difference is the proposed framework compared to how you currently design clinical trials? 5. What do you see as key challenges for introducing the framework?
6. How do you think clinicians will view estimands and the proposed framework? 21 References ICH concept paper (2014) E9(R1): Addendum to Statistical Principles for Clinical Trials on Choosing Appropriate Estimands and Defining Sensitivity Analyses in Clinical Trials Lewis JA (1999) Statistical principles for clinical trials (ICH E9): An introductory note on an international guideline.
