Cancer is one therapeutic area where patients cannot wait the conventional 10 or 12 years for a new therapy. For these patients, time is of the essence, and improved access to faster clinical trials can be the difference between receiving a new life-saving medicine and it being too late. In this episode, we talk to David Raben, vice president of Global Development Oncology at Amgen, about the next generation of oncology trial design and execution. To dive further into this topic, please join Amgen scientists at the Innovating Clinical Trials Q&A webinar discussion on September 28, 2022. Register for the event here.   Welcome to Innovating Clinical Trials, a special edition podcast series produced by The Scientist's Creative Services Team. This series is brought to you by Amgen, a pioneer in the science of using living cells to make biologic medicines. They helped invent the processes and tools that built the global biotech industry, and have since reached millions of patients suffering from serious illnesses around the world with their medicines. Clinical trials are desperate for innovation. Speed and efficiency need to improve as many patients cannot wait over a decade for new, potentially lifesaving medicines, and trial participants often do not reflect the patient population. Because clinical trials are complex and multidisciplinary, there is not a single, simple solution for accelerating progress. In this series, Rob Lenz, senior vice president of Global Development at Amgen, explores the latest approaches in clinical trial design and execution and highlights real-world examples of how scientists can run trials better and faster to develop optimal medicines that benefit patients.

The covid pandemic has brought into sharp focus the benefits as well as the challenges posed by the global supply chain related to the development of innovative new drugs. Paul Neureiter is the Executive Director for International Government Affairs & Trade Policy at Amgen. Before taking a role in ‘big pharma', Paul was the Senior Director for China Affairs for the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) and was part of the U.S. Foreign Service from 1987 to 2001. In this podcast we discuss how price controls for therapies can be a Faustian bargain, creating short term gain for long term losses, where patients are ultimately those who suffer the most. We also touch on the WTO and US Trade's decision to use TRIPs waivers to potentially pry open intellectual property rights for the mRNA technologies, and the broader implications of those decisions. As well, we highlight how the EU's approach to viewing biopharmaceutical innovation as a cost, and not as an investment, has had a demonstrably negative impact on their development of new, small, and innovative biotechnology firms like those driving US innovation and helping meet unmet medical needs for patients. Finally, we touch upon how Build Back Better can cause similar damage to the US innovation ecosystem as price controls have in the EU, and how China is quickly gaining on American biopharma innovation, and what that portends if the wrong political decisions are taken in the US Congress.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Gastrointestinal cancer experts Dr. Aparna Parikh and Dr. Kristin Ciombor discuss the treatment implications of the phase 3 PARADIGM trial and other advances in colorectal cancer with guest host and ASCO Daily News Associate Editor, Dr. Shaalan Beg.   TRANSCRIPT Dr. Shaalan Beg: Hello, and welcome to the ASCO Daily News Podcast. I'm Dr. Shaalan Beg, your guest host of the ASCO Daily News Podcast today. I'm an adjunct associate professor at UT Southwestern's Simmons Comprehensive Center and vice president of Oncology at Science 37. I'm delighted to welcome Dr. Aparna Parikh, and Dr. Kristen Ciombor to the podcast today. Dr. Parikh is an assistant professor of Medicine at Harvard University and a GI medical oncologist at the Mass General Hospital Cancer Center. Dr. Ciombor is an associate professor of Medicine and GI medical oncologist at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Today, we'll be discussing exciting new approaches using EGFR inhibitors as frontline therapy in colorectal cancer, and promising advances with immune therapy in the treatment of rectal cancer. Our full disclosures are available in the show notes, and disclosures of all guests on the podcast can be found in our transcripts at: asco.org/podcasts. Dr. Parikh, and Dr. Ciombor, it's great to have you on the podcast today. Dr. Aparna Parikh: Thanks so much. Dr. Kristen Ciombor: Thanks so much for having us. Dr. Shaalan Beg: We've seen some exciting advances in GI oncology this year. Let's start with colorectal cancer. Dr. Parikh, there have been many trials looking to compare EGFR and VEGF inhibitors in colorectal cancer. We've heard about the IDEA studies, the FIRE trials, and CALGB 80405. At the 2022 ASCO Annual Meeting, we heard the results of the PARADIGM trial. Have we finally answered the question of when to use EGFR inhibitors as frontline therapy for colorectal cancer? Dr. Aparna Parikh: Thanks so much, Dr. Beg, for this great question. It has been a really exciting year for colorectal cancer across the board. So, the anti-EGFR story is really interesting and has evolved. And maybe just for a little bit of background, we know that colorectal cancer originating from both the right and left side of the colon differ. So, they differ embryologically, and epidemiologically; there are different genetic and molecular aspects to right and left sides of colon cancers. And we have learned over time that in the era of targeted therapy, the primary tumor location has been found to play a very important role, not only in the prognosis of patients but to predict treatment response. We know that patients that have left-sided colon cancers-- and when we think about left-sided colon cancers, we think about cancers that originate from the splenic flexure and descending colon, sigmoid colon, rectosigmoid junction, and sometimes include the rectum in this as well. The rectals have slightly different molecular features than distal colons. And we know that these left-sided patients, overall, have better survival benefits than patients that have right-sided CRC. And that includes again, cecum, ascending colon, hepatic flexure, and transverse colon. So, we know that that had prognostic implications, but what about the predictive implications? And with ASCO, we saw some really exciting data with the PARADIGM study, as Dr. Beg highlighted. We have seen many examples in the past showing the predictive power of anti-EGFR therapy, and anti-EGFR therapy showing a detriment for patients on the right side of the colon. But all these results historically have been obtained by retrospective analysis. So, retrospective analysis of the pivotal CALGB 80405 study, which is the first-line biologic trial. FIRE-3, which is a similar study, but done out of Europe, and KRYSTAL. So all these studies show the same finding but were all obtained basically by retrospective analysis. And what we saw with PARADIGM this year, which is exciting to see, is that this was the first prospective trial to test the superiority of an anti-EGFR inhibitor panitumumab versus bevacizumab in combination with standard doublet first-line chemotherapy for patients that were RAS-wild type. I guess I forgot to mention that again, anti-EGFR therapies are only eligible for patients that are RAS-wild type. We know that RAS-mutant patients and RAS, KRAS HRAS patients don't respond to anti-EGFR therapy. So, the study was looking at RAS-wild type patients, and again, asking the question “was panitumumab better than bevacizumab in combination with chemotherapy for these RAS-wild type patients and for left-sided tumors?” It was a multicenter trial done in Japan-- and I always commend the Japanese on their work and their designs and ability to do these studies that ask really important questions. And, overall survival was the primary endpoint of the study in patients with left-sided tumors, but they also did a full set analysis including patients that didn't have left-sided tumors. They had 823 randomized patients. Many patients, a handful did not receive per-protocol treatment, and some were excluded for other reasons relating to inclusion criteria. And they had 400 patients that ultimately received panitumumab and 402 patients that received bevacizumab in the full set analysis. And of those patients, there were 312 and 292 respectively had left-sided tumors. And although the PFS was comparable between the treatment group, we saw that panitumumab in the left-sided patients actually did improve the OS in both patient populations. But when you looked at the left-sided tumors, the difference was 37.9 versus 34.3 months meeting statistical significance. So, this was an exciting study because it confirmed prospectively what we have seen time and time again, and really behooves us to do early biomarker testing and know RAS status early for these patients with right-sided tumors, as they do derive benefit from anti-EGFR. Maybe I'll just pause there and open it up for more questions or comments from Dr. Ciombor as well. Dr. Kristen Ciombor: Yeah, Dr. Parikh, I thought these data were encouraging. And as you mentioned, the first prospective data that we have in this setting now that we know this primary tumor sidedness matters. Just on a practical note, what do you do in practice? Do you give a lot of anti-EGFR in the first-line? I find that the toxicity can be challenging sometimes and patients may not want to do that. So, it leaves us in a quandary sometimes. Dr. Aparna Parikh: Yeah. So, what's interesting and I don't think we have this data clearly answered yet is, I had, especially for kind of a fit patient-- with the previous data that we've seen with TRIBE and others showing a survival benefit with triplet chemotherapy for first-line therapy, my inclination had actually been to prefer triplet-- and we know that triplet and anti-EGFR toxicity-wise is really, really tough to manage, and really no benefit there that we've seen with OS or PFS, even though you maybe do get a little bit of a better response rate with that. And so where I have sort of struggled is triplet versus just doing first-line doublet plus anti-EGFR. You know, we are not having a discussion about triplet today, but we also saw some data at ASCO showing that perhaps the benefit of the triplet, with the triplet study, is not as much as we had hoped it would've been too. So, it's a good question. I do tend to prefer triplet, I guess, overall, for the healthy, good performance status patient. And then, if not, then doublet. And we, unfortunately, don't have kind of rapid EGFR testing, we're pushing for that. In practice, I think having RAS/RAF status up front would be entirely helpful. It's lumped into our pan-tumor profiling, comprehensive genomic panels. We get microsatellite instability (MSI) status, which I know we'll talk about here next right away. But I think another reason that oftentimes we don't add it right away, is because we don't have the RAS status right away. So, you just start with a doublet and you may end up sneaking it on later. And then, I'd love to, maybe in another podcast, where we can discuss second-line anti-EGFR therapies and what people do in practice for those right-sided patients should they never get anti-EGFR and later-lines of therapy too. And I would argue, perhaps not, because we do see some patients that do benefit, but it can be challenging sometimes with a fresh new patient to make these decisions. But at least, feel encouraged that we're doing the right thing by adding anti-EGFR therapy if they can tolerate it for the left-sided RAS-wild type patient. How about you? What do you do? Dr. Kristen Ciombor: Yeah. Largely, it's a great question. And I don't love giving anti-EGFR therapy. We have an additional issue where I am geographically in that we don't ever give cetuximab because of the high rates of an infusion reaction. So, we pretty much stick to panitumumab and are glad to have that option. But I have started to talk to patients about toxicity and I'm really upfront with the survival data. And it's interesting how people choose differently in terms of what's important to them. And whereas a few extra months in the overall survival may be overshadowed by the toxicity that they have to go through to accomplish that. So, it's good to have many options though, and that's the important thing, and I think the takeaway, as well. Dr. Shaalan Beg: So, kind of brings it back to the fundamentals of practicing medicine, right? Bringing our patients and giving them the options that are most available to them. But I'm going to ask both of you one by one: So, if we have our patient with left-sided colorectal cancer, known as KRAS RAS-wild type, do you recommend EGFR therapy and VEGF therapy and allow the patients to decide, or do you feel that we decide if their profile is such that we should continue with VEGF therapy instead? Dr. Ciombor, do you want to go first? Dr. Kristen Ciombor: Yeah, I think both are good options. I don't only do bevacizumab in the first-line by any means because we do have that survival data. It mostly comes down to a discussion with the patient in terms of toxicities and survival and how well those balance out. Dr. Aparna Parikh: Yeah, very similar. I think we have also gotten a little bit more adept at managing toxicity. I'm pretty aggressive about prophylaxis with even doxy and topicals for managing the rash. And so, for some of my younger patients who are wanting to be "aggressive" and want the exposure to anti-EGFR early but are still very mindful of how it's impacting their day-to-day semblance of self, especially for the younger patients, try to be very proactive about side effect management. And then, of course, we have the patients that have the electrolyte wasting and things too that sometimes if it's bad, we are stuck with infusions frequently and you may end up dropping for those patients. But I think the rash at least I feel like for most patients we can manage if you're aggressive about it too. And I think we have gotten better at that than we were many years ago. Dr. Kristen Ciombor: Never thought we'd be dermatologists, did we? In training, that was definitely not a path I was good at. Dr. Shaalan Beg: Dermato-Oncology, rapidly growing field. So, Dr. Ciombor, the rectal cancer space has evolved very rapidly in recent years, especially when we hear about total neoadjuvant therapy, short-course radiation, watch-and-wait, for those with complete clinical responses. So at ASCO this year, we heard results on immune therapy and rectal cancer. Can you summarize where we are with immune therapy and rectal cancer? Dr. Kristen Ciombor: So, yes. We heard a lot this year at ASCO; both at ASCO GI and ASCO, from the Memorial group and Dr. Cercek's group. And this has been a really exciting advance that we're starting to see and potentially paradigm-shifting data. So, we know-- as you mentioned, that our treatment of rectal cancer, specifically, locally advanced rectal cancer has changed a lot in the last few years with a shift to more Total Neoadjuvant Therapy. And what the Memorial data showed was that for the patients who have microsatellite instability or mismatch repair deficiency, which admittedly, is a small group, but certainly ones that we see in clinic, those patients, on their trial were treated with six months of dostarlimab as neoadjuvant therapy prior to any other treatment; before radiation, surgery, et cetera, and no chemotherapy. And what they found was that actually, six months of dostarlimab in the first 14 evaluable patients actually induced a 100% clinical complete response rate. So, it's really unheard of in most of our trials to see 100%. And I think that caught everyone's attention for sure. I think we have to keep in mind who these patients were and are because they are currently being followed. So, for instance, these were patients that had pretty bulky node-positive disease, almost all these patients did. These were not really early-stage tumors. We did see that 100% were BRAF-wild type, so it does tell us maybe this is not completely the population that we're all seeing when we do see microsatellite instability since we see a lot of sporadic tumors with BRAF mutations. But on the whole, I mean, these were all MSI-high patients and treated with dostarlimab; the six months, that was the total amount of treatment that they received, though a few patients achieved that clinical complete response earlier at about three months, at the three-month reassessment. And what the clinical complete response rate was, was looking both radiographically, as well as endoscopically, and not seeing any sign of residual tumor. I think the important thing here is that median follow-up is still pretty short. There are a few patients who are approaching now two years past that dostarlimab therapy and have not had tumor recurrence, but overall, the median follow-up is still quite short. So, I think we do need to continue to follow these patients. We don't have overall survival data yet either. I think we still have a lot to learn, but this is a very encouraging start and certainly, something that could be really treatment-changing for these patients, which again, as Dr. Parikh was saying, we need this molecular profiling early to make treatment decisions right off the bat, not even only for metastatic now, but even for these locally-advanced rectal cancer patients. Because if you think about it, we've all taken care of patients who have to go through chemoradiation, and chemo, and surgery, and have a lot of morbidity from those treatments so that even if you cure them, they're left with a lot of toxicity. So, if we could avoid some of that, even potentially, surgery, that would be wonderful. But I do caution that this is not the standard of care yet. This is only based on 14 patients with short follow-ups at the current time. But the trial is ongoing, and there are other trials open in this space for patients who don't live in New York or can't get to New York. And for instance, ECOG-ACRIN study 2201 is treating these same patients with nivo and ipi, as opposed to dostarlimab. And that trial is open in about 80 sites now across the US. So hopefully, geographically near all of these patients. Dr. Shaalan Beg: I think a lot of us and a lot of our listeners, that Monday after the results were announced on ASCO had our phone lines and our patient secure messaging lines blowing up. Dr. Kristen Ciombor: We should have warned our nurses and our treatment teams that they would be fielding these questions, yes. On one hand, it's wonderful that our data and the science is getting out to patients. But I think we also have to be really careful as to what is reaching them because many of them didn't realize it was for this subset of patient populations. But great that they're asking those questions and wondering-- being advocates for themselves too. Dr. Shaalan Beg: You use the term clinical complete response. Can you talk about how we determine someone has a complete clinical response and what their follow-up looks like? Dr. Kristen Ciombor: Yeah. In the context of this study, it was actually, as I mentioned, it was both radiographic complete response, as well as endoscopic. So that's one thing that is a little bit tricky when you think about surveillance of these patients. So, it requires a lot, both in frequent surveillance, MRIs, FLEX SIGs often, digital rectal exams, sometimes doing PET scans or CTs, and patients who-- not only on this kind of study but also in non-operative management; watch-and-wait - really have to commit to very close, very frequent follow-up because if the cancer recurs, we don't want to miss that and lose our chance to cure them. So I think that's a little bit different everywhere, how that watch-and-wait approach really manifests, but I think we're learning how to do that, and working in a multidisciplinary group to make sure that patients get the surveillance that they need. Dr. Aparna Parikh: Yeah. I totally agree. If we offer, for the MSI-high patients, if we ultimately end up offering neoadjuvant immunotherapy-- and actually, I'm looking forward to your study, Dr. Ciombor, too, I think the monotherapy versus doublet, too, is going to come up for these patients. But I had a patient just a week or two ago that was starting on this approach with neoadjuvant immunotherapy, but for now, as a group, if we're proceeding down that and they do get a clinical complete response, we're deciding to forego even the radiation and surgery. We're following what they did in the OPRA study, which was pretty aggressive surveillance on the backend, both with direct visualization and MRIs, and you're seeing these patients every three months or so. Dr. Shaalan Beg: Well, thank you Dr. Ciombor and Dr. Parikh for sharing some valuable insights with us on the podcast today. Dr. Aparna Parikh: Thanks so much for having us. It was a lot of fun.

With advances in genetics and other human data, researchers and doctors will one day be able to practice precision medicine. However, predicting how a patient will respond to a medicine is challenging in under-represented patients who are often not included in clinical trials. This is due in part to systemic issues that deter people from participating in research, especially those who have been historically excluded due to factors such as race, ethnicity, sex, and age. In this episode, we talk to Ponda Motsepe-Ditshego, vice president and Global Medical Therapeutic Area head in General Medicine at Amgen, about the recognized differences in disease incidence among racial and ethnic groups and new approaches to increase representation in clinical trials.  To dive further into this topic, please join Amgen scientists at the Innovating Clinical Trials Q&A webinar discussion on September 28, 2022.

En el 2007, se introdujo su actual nombre. Ha sido puntual para lograr cambios de comportamiento social sobre la protección de los recursos mediante proyectos como la Limpieza Internacional de Costas. A través de la acción, educa y compromete a la comunidad para conservar los recursos naturales limpios y saludables. o www.scubadogssociety.org o https://satc17.scubadogssociety.org/legado-quique/ San Juan, Puerto Rico (lunes, 12 de septiembre de 2022) – Miles de voluntarios convocados por la organización sin fines de lucro Scuba Dogs Society (SDS), organizadora oficial de la Limpieza Internacional de Costas en este país caribeño, harán historia el sábado al completar dos décadas ininterrumpidas del evento, a pesar de enfrentar devastadores huracanes, terremotos, sequías y una pandemia. La presidenta de la Junta de Directores de SDS, Irma “Mimi” Ruiz destacó la magnitud del logro de una comunidad comprometida con el ambiente, que por 20 años ha respondido a la convocatoria de Scuba Dogs Society para encaminar cambios hacia una cultura de reducir y reusar que promueva la armonía con la naturaleza. “Todos en Puerto Rico debemos sentirnos orgullosos por el hito que se marcará este sábado. Es evidencia clara de lo que nos define como pueblo, de lo capaces que somos de unirnos por el amor que sentimos por nuestros recursos y por nuestra gente”, apuntó Ruiz. Resaltó que ha sido clave la participación multisectorial compuesta por la fuerza del voluntariado, organizaciones aliadas, el compromiso de las empresas y sobre todo el liderato de las capitanas y los capitanes de costas. “Este sábado vamos a limpiar 200 costas y áreas naturales a lo largo de Puerto Rico uniéndonos a más de 100 países bajo la iniciativa de Ocean Conservancy. Destacamos la importancia de inscribirse en www.scubadogssociety.org para tener registro de la participación a nivel internacional”, expresó Ruiz. Datos estadísticos de 19 años de la Limpieza Internacional de Costas Ana Trujillo, pasada directora ejecutiva y gerente de proyectos de SDS, indicó que la participación de los ciudadanos ha sido clave en la generación de la base de datos de desperdicios removidos en los cuerpos de agua de Puerto Rico. “Son 19 años de ciencia ciudadana ininterrumpida”, puntualizó. Del análisis de los datos resalta que: • en 11 de los 19 años, Puerto Rico ha estado entre los primeros 20 países con mayor participación de voluntarios y en la mayoría de las ocasiones el número uno a nivel per cápita. • la cifra de voluntarios aumenta mientras el peso de los desperdicios removidos disminuye. Del año 2002 al 2021 han participado 182,370 voluntarios y se han removido casi 3 millones de libras de desechos (2,901,221.36) (ver tabla adjunto) • el peso promedio de la basura por voluntario ha disminuido gradualmente hasta llegar al nivel más bajo de 9.98 libras por voluntario, en el 2021. • Entre el 2008 y el 2021 se ha integrado a 71 municipios que han participado en la Limpieza Internacional de Costas, 37 de ellos por más de 10 años • se ha identificado con datos fehacientes que de los 15 desperdicios más frecuentes removidos entre 2008 y 2021, 11 provienen de los plásticos, aunque históricamente las colillas de cigarrillos han sido el más común. “No existe mejor educación que a través de la acción. Movilizar a todos los segmentos de la comunidad puertorriqueña consistentemente por 20 años seguidos ha logrado una transformación real de comportamiento que hemos podido evidenciar con datos como estos. Aún falta, por supuesto, pero hoy nos corresponde celebrar este gran logro a favor de nuestra convivencia en armonía con la naturaleza”, afirmó, por su parte, Alberto Martí, cofundador de SDS e integrante de la Junta de Directores. Mensaje de Ocean Conservancy: “Ocean Conservancy se complace en celebrar los 20 años de la International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) en alianza con Scuba Dogs Society en Puerto Rico”, dijo Nick Mallos, vicepresidente de plásticos oceánicos de Ocean Conservancy. “La ICC simplemente no sería posible sin el trabajo de cientos de increíbles organizaciones asociadas en todo el mundo que organizan limpiezas locales y recopilan datos. Desde 1986, el ICC ha movilizado a más de 17 millones de voluntarios para eliminar casi 350 millones de libras de basura de las playas y vías fluviales de todo el mundo; y socios firmes como Scuba Dogs Society son una gran parte de este éxito. Esperamos otros 20 años de limpieza y comunidad”. ¿Cómo registrarse? Ruiz recalcó que aún hay áreas que cuentan con capitanes, pero necesitan voluntarios para la limpieza. Exhortó a individuos, familias y grupos a visitar www.scubadogssociety.org para registrarse. Para más información, pueden comunicarse al centro de llamadas de Fondos Unidos: 2-1-1 o acudir a uno de los dos Centros de la Comunidad que ubican en el primer nivel de Plaza Las Américas, antiguo local de First Bank (frente a Red Lobster), en San Juan, y en Plaza del Caribe, en Ponce. El horario de operación será lunes a sábado de 10:00 AM a 8:00 PM. Quienes no puedan asistir a alguna de las limpiezas, también pueden sumarse al #VeinteTú adquiriendo la camiseta conmemorativa del evento en los Centros de la Comunidad y enviando sus donativos a través de ATH Móvil/scubadogssociety o PayPal.

Our guest on the podcast this week is Simon Severino, CEO of Strategy Sprints and Host of the Strategy Sprints podcast. He has interviewed powerhouse entrepreneurs like Rita McGrath, David Allen, Nir Eyal, Perry Marshall, Verne Harnish, Brian Kurtz, and hundreds more on business, productivity, and growth. He helps business owners in SaaS and Services run their companies more effectively which results in sales that soar. He created the Strategy Sprints™ Method that doubles revenue in 90 days by getting owners out of the weeds. Simon leads a global team of Certified Strategy Sprints™ Coaches that help clients gain market share and work in weekly sprints which results in fast execution. His team is trusted by Google, Consilience Ventures, Roche, Amgen, AbbVie, and hundreds of frontier teams. He is a TEDx speaker and has appeared on over 500 podcasts. He writes for Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine about scaling digital businesses. Today Simon talks about his passion for ‘aliveness' in business, how important our energy is to how we show up to our work, and how creating sacred space is the key to winning teams. As he says, twenty years ago he fell in love with business, how we can start and enter the market, and how to win in business, whatever your interpretation of that is. Although he is undoubtedly a systems guy, he talks freely about energy and the frequency of potential and vibration - how a business needs to inspire people to feel more alive and how his simple methods get incredible results for his clients. Listen in as Simon shares some important yet simple perspectives on how you as a changemaker can fulfill your potential in business while also enjoying the journey and having a life. We discuss the ‘sacred' and how the best performing teams create sacred space, how words have energy, and the potential to shift people's mindsets when you use the correct ways to connect to people's emotions. And I loved it when Simon took a stand against using words like “leads' as he says they are not leads they are interested people so don't dehumanize them in your copy or approach. If you would like some tangible insights about how you can get better at business in ways that will make you feel alive, then I think you will gain some great insights from Simon that will inspire you to perhaps think a little differently about your current approach. I suspect you'll enjoy Simon's unique perspective on the energetic exchange of business and the truth and freedom that is just waiting for you to claim it. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did. Key Takeaways The simple approach to doubling your revenue in just 90 days with strategy sprints How's not about the money, it's about the aliveness What simple steps you can take to grow your business in meaningful ways (and it's not the usual hot air we often hear!) How business is an energetic exchange of understanding, love, and deeply caring for others How to find your ‘sacred' - your way of doing business, your way of selling and marketing so it feels good. Memorable Quote “Most people have a very complicated approach to business and we keep it simple and direct. It's based on 2 very simple things, truth, and freedom. There are just 3 numbers to track, 3 goals, and maximum freedom in how people get there. It's not that hard.” —Simon Severino Episode Resources: http://strategysprints.com/ (Strategy Sprints Website) https://www.linkedin.com/in/simonseverino/ (Simon's Linkedin) http://sacredchangemakers.com/ (SacredChangemakers.com) http://coachesbusinessschool.com/ (CoachesBusinessSchool.com) https://www.instagram.com/jayne_m_warrilow/?hl=en (Jayne Warrilow on Instagram) Thank you to our sponsor: A HUGE thank you to the members of Coaches Business School who are our podcast sponsors, and also our extended community who are helping us to make a global impact aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, all visible on our website.

Randomized clinical trials are the gold standard for evaluating the efficacy and safety of medicines, but they come with many drawbacks including high monetary and time costs, a lack of representation compared to the general public, and ethical limitations. Historically, these trials were the main mechanism to understand the effects of a medicine. But more recently, real world data from sources such as electronic health records, insurance claims and billing activities, disease registries, and wearable devices, is having a greater effect on understanding a medicine's usage and effects. Although this information is collected outside of clinical trials, clinical researchers incorporate it during the earliest phases of clinical development to gain additional information and speed up the drug development process. In this episode, we talk to Brian Bradbury, vice president of the Center for Observational Research at Amgen, about the increased utilization of real world data and its potential to revolutionize every stage of clinical research, from trial design to regulatory requirements to outcomes measurement. To dive further into this topic, please join Amgen scientists at the Innovating Clinical Trials Q&A webinar discussion on September 28, 2022. Register for the event here.   Welcome to Innovating Clinical Trials, a special edition podcast series produced by The Scientist's Creative Services Team. This series is brought to you by Amgen, a pioneer in the science of using living cells to make biologic medicines. They helped invent the processes and tools that built the global biotech industry, and have since reached millions of patients suffering from serious illnesses around the world with their medicines. Clinical trials are desperate for innovation. Speed and efficiency need to improve as many patients cannot wait over a decade for new, potentially lifesaving medicines, and trial participants often do not reflect the patient population. Because clinical trials are complex and multidisciplinary, there is not a single, simple solution for accelerating progress. In this series, Rob Lenz, senior vice president of Global Development at Amgen, explores the latest approaches in clinical trial design and execution and highlights real-world examples of how scientists can run trials better and faster to develop optimal medicines that benefit patients.

Simon Severino helps business owners in SaaS and Services run their companies more effectively resulting in sales that soar. His services are trusted by Google, Roche, Consilience Ventures, Amgen, and AbbVie. He created the Strategy Sprints™ Method that doubles revenue in 90 days by getting owners out of the weeds. He is a TEDx speaker, Contributor to Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine, and member of the SVBS Silicon Valley Blockchain Society. KEY TAKEAWAYS The key to doubling your company's revenue lies in identifying bottlenecks and solving them. Solving a bottleneck is one of the most important points for achieving this goal, as it will make you energized with motivation! The next thing on our list is habits - creating daily, weekly, or monthly schedules can help us stay organized throughout different parts of life. All these things combined add up to being agile: staying aware enough about what needs doing without wasting time. BEST MOMENTS “There are two reflective questions of all these things. Which one will I delegate tomorrow? And so I review which one gave me energy or took energy from me and which one really moved the whole business forward versus just parts of the business. And the second reflective question is if I would live more freely, and more intentionally, what will I do tomorrow? That's a daily habit. And if everybody does that, in your team, you learn you improve, but also you scale because now everybody starts as soon as they have built something that works.” “If the market breaks down in one week and it takes you three months to change your offers, to change your processes then you are rigid. If it takes you one week to respond on that changing your offers and your processes. Then you're agile.” “Velocity, which means it is speed including the direction of the speed because you can run a marathon and you're the fastest but you're running in the wrong direction. That's the worst thing that can happen to you.” “What's the current bottleneck? So what's the weakest part right now? If we improve that the overall value creation goes higher, more than just if we repair everything a little bit, and so there is always one weak part and that's the bottleneck.” “If you really care about somebody and if you are their advisor, the first part is to really acknowledge their culture and to pick them up at their bus stop, but then get into the next year of the bus and go something, explore a little bit of the wild territory with that bus.” ABOUT THE HOST Levent Yildizgoren, the author of 'Good Business in any Language', is an award-winning entrepreneur, localisation professional, and a PRINCE2 qualified project manager.

This series is brought to you by Amgen, a pioneer in the science of using living cells to make biologic medicines. They helped invent the processes and tools that built the global biotech industry, and have since reached millions of patients suffering from serious illnesses around the world with their medicines. Clinical trials are desperate for innovation. Speed and efficiency need to improve as many patients cannot wait over a decade for new, potentially lifesaving medicines, and trial participants often do not reflect the patient population. Because clinical trials are complex and multidisciplinary, there is not a single, simple solution for accelerating progress. In this series, Rob Lenz, senior vice president of Global Development at Amgen, explores the latest approaches in clinical trial design and execution and highlights real-world examples of how scientists can run trials better and faster to develop optimal medicines that benefit patients.   Our understanding of human biology and disease is progressing at an unprecedented pace, and clinical trial development and execution needs to evolve just as quickly to deliver potentially lifesaving medicines to patients who can't wait. We also need to recruit underrepresented patients into trials, which requires us to think differently about how we identify and recruit patients. In this episode, we talk to Cynthia Verst, president of Design and Delivery Innovation for Research & Development Solutions at IQVIA, a global provider of advanced analytics, technology solutions, and clinical research services. We discuss the drivers for applying innovation in the trial execution space and how the clinical trials model is evolving across the industry thanks to modern innovations.

Dr. Pamela Kunz, of the Yale Cancer Center, and the JCO consultant editor for Meeting Abstracts, discusses “hidden gems” from ASCO22, highlighting abstracts that address EDI, global health, health care economics, and more. Abstracts/Tweetorials @PamelaKunzMD and @ryangentzler TRANSCRIPT ASCO Daily News: Hello, and welcome to the ASCO Daily News podcast. I'm Geraldine Carroll, a reporter for the ASCO Daily News. My guest today is Dr. Pamela Kunz, an associate professor of medicine and director of the Center for Gastrointestinal Cancers at the Yale School of Medicine. Dr. Kunz is also the Journal of Clinical Oncology's (JCO) contributing editor for meeting abstracts. You may have seen her recent tweetorials highlighting compelling abstracts from the 2022 ASCO Annual Meeting. She'll be telling us more about this initiative to highlight impactful studies that address equity, diversity, and inclusion, global oncology, and more. Dr. Kunz's full disclosures are available in the show notes and disclosures relating to all episodes of the podcast can be found on our transcripts at asco.org/podcasts. Dr. Kunz, thanks for being on the podcast today. Dr. Pamela Kunz: Thank you. It's my pleasure to be here. ASCO Daily News: Social media has created a global community in oncology, and you and Dr. Ryan Gentzler of the University of Virginia Cancer Center recently launched a great series of tweetorials to highlight compelling studies from the ASCO Annual Meeting. Some of our listeners will have seen these threads already, and others will be keen to find them and know more about these efforts. Can you give us the details? Dr. Pamela Kunz: Sure, I'd be happy to. This is a new initiative to really modernize the meeting abstracts. These used to be called meeting proceedings and were printed, and we felt that there was a real opportunity to use social media to disseminate more information around abstracts. And we decided this year to focus on four themes. They are diversity, equity, and inclusion; global health; health care economics; and the Merit Award recipients. And within each of these tweetorials, we have 4 to 5 abstracts that are highlighted that include takeaways and a visual from the poster or presentation. We intentionally decided to highlight abstracts that were not otherwise highlighted in the ASCO Annual Meeting in either oral sessions or poster discussions. So we are calling these hidden gems. There are so many great scientific abstracts that don't get otherwise highlighted, and this was a really nice opportunity to do so. ASCO Daily News: Excellent. And I understand you'll be highlighting a couple of abstracts for us today. I believe the first one concerns telehealth used by older patients. Can you tell us about this abstract? Dr. Pamela Kunz: Sure. So this is in the health equity tweetorial, and this is Abstract 1591 by Dr. Higashi and colleagues. And the takeaway from this, I found this interesting, and the disclosure is that I selected these abstracts, given my own personal interests, but I thought that they would be of broad interest to the ASCO membership. So telehealth really became used quite often during COVID, and I think that that has been a real silver lining that there is increased access to expert cancer care through the use of telehealth. This abstract demonstrated that the use of telehealth during cancer treatment was really received positively by older patients, providers, and staff. Most older patients, 66%, and providers and staff, 77%, intended to continue using telehealth after the pandemic. There are certainly some equity issues related to telehealth in terms of access to the internet and the ability to use the technology, but I thought this was interesting because it's specifically focused on older patients. ASCO Daily News: Excellent. Telehealth certainly has been a gamechanger in oncology. I believe the second abstract that you'll be highlighting addresses the use of supportive care in pancreas cancer, correct? Dr. Pamela Kunz: That's exactly right. So this is in the Merit Award tweetorial, and there are so many fantastic Merit Award recipients. It was actually very difficult to select just a few to highlight. In the tweetorial, we will be providing the link to all of the Merit Award recipients. So I encourage listeners to really go look at that. So this specific abstract that I wanted to mention on today's podcast is Abstract 4154 by Dr. Chris Cann and colleagues. They examined, through the National Cancer database, over 150,000 patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer and found that only 2.9% received supportive care treatment despite over 65% of these patients receiving care at an academic program. And so I think that it just really highlighted the need for these patients to really utilize supportive care programs. Perhaps sometimes we have a bias that we refer patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer to supportive care programs. But there's an opportunity to take advantage of these services earlier. ASCO Daily News: Excellent. Well, Dr. Kunz, looking ahead, do you think there's scope to leverage social media more in oncology? Tweetorials, for example, are a great vehicle for education and a way to address topics that don't get as much attention as we'd like? Dr. Pamela Kunz: Absolutely, Geraldine. You know, this was a pilot this year with Dr. Ryan Gentzler and myself. There is an active social media editor, Dr. Shannon Westin, who's a consultant member of the JCO editorial board as well. I think in partnering with the ASCO Annual Meeting Social Media Team, this has really been a team effort. And we are hoping to do more of this in future years, and in particular, take advantage of creating opportunities for perhaps fellows and junior faculty to assist in disseminating some of this information via social media. ASCO Daily News: Absolutely. This is an incredibly important initiative that will benefit oncologists, patient advocates, and patients alike who are on social media to learn about advances in care. So it's really important that we let our listeners know where they can find these tweetorials. You are on Twitter @PamelKunzMD and Dr. Ryan Gentzler is @ryangentzler. Dr. Kunz, is there anything else you'd like to add before we wrap up the podcast today? Dr. Pamela Kunz: Well, thank you for the opportunity to highlight this. I think we would also welcome suggestions from our listeners. If you are reading the tweetorials, you can send me a direct message, and we'd welcome suggestions for future years on how to highlight other science from our ASCO Annual Meeting. ASCO Daily News: Absolutely. And we'd certainly like to encourage our listeners to share these amazing tweetorials. Well, Dr. Kunz, thanks for coming on the podcast today and for your efforts to elevate abstracts and investigators who are working really hard to address some complex issues in cancer care. Dr. Pamela Kunz: Thank you for the opportunity. ASCO Daily News: And thank you to our listeners for joining us today. You will find links to the abstracts discussed today on the transcript of this episode, and we'll post the Twitter handles of Dr. Kunz and Dr. Gentzler in the show notes.

Naturally-occurring proteins have evolved over millions of years to perform specific functions based on their sequences and folded structures. As our understanding of science advanced, researchers began designing proteins from scratch to solve new challenges that modern societies face.  In this episode, we talk to David Baker, director of the Institute for Protein Design at the University of Washington and one of the creators of the RoseTTAFold protein structure prediction tool. We discuss how to design proteins with sequences and structures that impart novel functions and how designed proteins will revolutionize drug development.
