PROMETRIKA Guides Mindful Implementation of ePRO Solutions


Patient Focus

Today’s clinical development is more patient-centric – focusing not only on treating the patient’s disease or dysfunction but also on the patient’s experience of, and desired outcomes for, treatment. Sponsors must make mindful decisions as they select new technologies to directly collect data from patients and use it in statistical analyses. Multiple parties are involved in the decision around collecting patient-reported outcomes (PROs), one of the four forms of clinical outcomes assessment (COA). Drug and device development sponsors, sites, CROs, patients, and even patients’ families have roles in determining what PRO tools are best suited to a particular study. PROMETRIKA’s data management experts have eased sponsors’ entries into the effective use of ePRO tools in today’s electronic data environment.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, inflammatory, demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS). It is hypothesized that CNS auto-reactive T cells are stimulated in the peripheral circulation to become active and proliferate, with subsequent migration into the CNS compartment. These cells, upon interacting with CNS myelin antigens, again proliferate and initiate a pro-inflammatory cascade within the brain that results in damage.

The sponsor’s objective in using PRO instruments is to measure the clinical effects of treatment, especially for parameters that are difficult to measure objectively, like pain.
