Solutions for Clinical Development

Data generated by N1 can improve early phase pipeline portfolio decision making, and reduce costly late-stage failures.

Data-Driven Early Phase Decisions

The most important decisions relating to a drug candidate are founded on the data emerging from early phase proof-of-concept trials: Do we believe it will work in pivotal trials with regulatory endpoints that will likely cost hundreds of millions of dollars? What should be the design of those pivotal studies?

N1 can generate data to answer these high-stakes questions.

Digital Biomarkers & Endpoints

In the absence of well-established and validated biomarkers of diagnosis, disease progression or treatment response, the primary means for assessing the efficacy of novel therapies are often a combination of clinician-administered, rater-dependent rating scales and subjective patient-reported outcomes. In addition, these conventional clinical study designs, where only intermittent evaluations occur, often only allow for snapshot assessments of enrolled patient, with long periods during which important data points are not collected.

This all contributes to late-stage failures that may be avoided by digital biomarkers and endpoints.

Technology-Powered Enrichment

Identifying participants in the early, pre-clinical or prodromal stages of certain disorders can be challenging, time-consuming and expensive.

Digital biomarkers enable remote screenings of trial participants, and reduce on-site screen failure rates and costs for both sites and sponsor. In addition, testing a new therapy only in a digital-biomarker-positive subgroup can be beneficial for various reasons (e.g. reduced sample size; avoiding dilution of the results due to the absence of biomarker-negative patients).

Solutions for Medical Affairs & HEOR

Data generated by N1 can help demonstrate real-world effectiveness, patient benefit and value.

Smart Registries

N1 can be used to generate post-launch data from registries, e.g. when required by regulators or HTA agencies (for early access approvals, conditional approvals or approvals under exceptional circumstance)

Virtual Phase IV Trials

Trials with digital endpoints collected in the patients' homes can reduce the number site visits or make them obsolete at all, introducing unmet efficiency for phase IV trials (e.g. generating data for lifecycle management)

Next-Gen HRQoL

Patient burden and health related quality of life (HRQoL) is notoriously difficult to assess. N1 can collect disease-specific, technology-generated data reflecting qualitative and quantitative patient burden.
