Presentation 2: Incorporating Patient-Centered Outcomes in Clinical Trials

December 28, 2013

Ethan Basch, MD, a self-described triple-threat, discusses incorporating patient-centered outcomes into clinical trials. He begins his presentation by describing a colleague's published research article, Pazopanib versus Sunitinib in Metastatic Renal-Cell Carcinoma. The study found that not only did Pazopanib cost an estimated $5800 and Sunitinib $7800, but Pazopanib was superior to Sunitiniib in 11 out of 14 quality-of-life indicators.
