Towards the Use of Bioassays as Predictors of Adverse Events in Clinical Trials
Matthew Clark, Ph.D., Consultant R&D Solutions, Elsevier
To reduce clinical trial failures we have studied a method of using inexpensive bioassays to predict adverse event risks in clinical trials. We used data from FDA submissions and bioactivities from journals and patents to create 2x2 contingency tables for each target/event combination. The relationships were then studied with pathway analysis to understand the models.

Transforming Disparate Data into Collective Insights

Frederik van den Broek, Ph.D., Consultant, R&D Solutions, Elsevier
Gregory Landrum, Ph.D., Vice President, Life Sciences, Knime.com AG
Big data in R&D is simply today’s data. Efficiently and reproducibly learning from this data requires us to combine different types of information from various sources and to apply advanced analytics and visualization to the resulting data set(s) using integrated workflow and analytics platforms. This talk will present use cases showing how one can obtain these insights which are vital for R&D decision-making in today’s competitive drug discovery environment.
