Feasibility study for new SAM given go-ahead Please note: This article was published on 19, February,
Bayer AG Abstract Patient recruitment is perhaps one of the key challenges to the success of clinical trials. The traditional approach to assessing the feasibility of a study is to survey sites on their projected enrollment capability.
In this paper we propose an approach for a data driven feasibility including key considerations which should be taken into account to conduct successful feasibility assessments and minimize risk.
Introduction Patient recruitment is perhaps the biggest challenge to the success of clinical trials. Inability to recruit subjects in target timelines results in an extensive cost and resource burden on study teams.
This reduced efficiency due to the extended recruitment time is a common problem for all drug sponsors costing them millions each year. Sponsors wish for greater trial predictability where enrollment forecasts are realistic and achievable. Given that there is no optimal solution to this problem, in this paper we present an approach which we believe allows for informed decision making through a data centric approach which is adaptive to the needs of each study.
Investing in a robust feasibility process based on early planning enables sponsors and other involved parties to obtain a realistic assessment of the capability of executing a planned clinical trial. They only provide a rough estimate.
Investigators may overestimate the number of patients they expect to recruit in the hopes of being selected to conduct the study. In other cases, investigators may underestimate so that the target enrollment for the site is easily achievable.
Sponsors analyze the gathered patient count estimates and use their own experience to suggest the number of patients they might expect per site per month. In many cases, this leads to over-optimism and unrealistic targets. Many times, sites get selected due to having worked with the sponsor in studies in the past.
This neglects that each study is different and thus have differing requirements. Site selection must be based solely on evidence that a site is expected to perform well. Detailed early planning can be time consuming and costly but the cost is justified as it can prevent such a crisis from even happening in the first place.
The feasibility process should be designed to be adaptive. It should start early and should be customized to the specific needs of therapeutic areas and studies. The key attributes of a robust feasibility approach include — Clearly defined triggers: Feasibility should be started early and has clearly defined triggers.
This trigger should not be linked to availability of specific documents but rather to the availability of the minimum necessary information to begin feasibility.
Hundertwasser Wairau Maori Art Centre: Feasibility Study Update 1 1. Executive Summary. The proposed Hundertwasser Wairau Maori Art Centre (HWMAC) is a detailed proposal that has the potential to bring additional visitors to Whangarei, create jobs, bring economic benefits to Whangarei and act as a catalyst to the. emotions, the Center will endorse ‘Art as Therapy’. This will be a space of the Center to de stress and explore their artistic side and different forms of art by designing unique platforms of engagement. OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY To check the market feasibility of establishing an . The feasibility study is the first step of the development process and provides critical guidance for design, construction, and operations. It evaluates potential market support and forecasts usage.
This allows for earlier planning and an earlier start to feasibility activities. Feasibility should be managed using an evolving Feasibility Plan that begins during Clinical Development Plan CDP progress and will outline the specific steps required for the program and its studies.
This plan defines the depth and breadth of feasibility along with planned timelines for feasibility. Decisions should be driven by all available data where selection of sites is based on past performance historical, internal and procured data and suitability assessment via surveys.
Countries should be involved from the beginning to enable effective resource planning. Face-to-face interactions with investigators are recommended to help drive a partnership throughout the process.
A three stage approach is proposed to conduct trial feasibility. Alignment of feasibility activities with study milestones Early Indication Feasibility Feasibility should be initiated at a defined trigger point and should begin with a planning stage.
This includes the extent of feasibility required based on prior experience in the indication and agreement on feasibility timelines. Intelligence should be gathered through all available sources internal and external to draft an initial global investigator list.
This serves as a long list to be further refined through the feasibility process.
It is also important to involve countries here early in helping develop the initial investigator list as well as developing an outreach plan to engage with the investigators.The feasibility study will provide Council with a comprehensive business case to make an informed decision about the viability and substance of a new stand-alone SAM.
A detailed feasibility study is also a requirement for future state government investment in infrastructure. I don't think we'd be going minnesota/LA/SF state of the art.

A feasibility study also addresses such important issues as where (and how) the business will operate. If done properly, your feasibility will provide in-depth details about all the various components of your business in order to determine if it can succeed.
A feasibility study is an analysis used in measuring the ability and likelihood to complete a project successfully including all relevant factors. between a feasibility study and a business plan.
Feasibility Studies A feasibility study is designed to discover if a business or project is “feasible” or if it is not: (In short, does the business or project warrant further investment of time, money and further study or is it a non-starter).
