Abstract

EN Clinical trials are the gatekeepers and bottlenecks of progress in medicine. In recent years, they have become increasingly complex and expensive, driven by a growing number of stakeholders requiring more endpoints, more diverse patient populations, and a stringent regulatory environment. Trial designers have historically relied on investigator expertise and legacy norms established within sponsor companies to improve operational efficiency while achieving study goals. As such, data-driven forecasts of operational metrics can be a useful resource for trial design and planning. We develop a machine learning model to predict clinical trial operational efficiency using a novel dataset from Roche containing over 2,000 clinical trials across 20 years and multiple disease areas. The data includes important operational metrics related to patient recruitment and trial duration, as well as a variety of trial features such as the number of procedures, eligibility criteria, and endpoints. Our results demonstrate that operational efficiency can be predicted robustly using trial features, which can provide useful insights to trial designers on the potential impact of their decisions on patient recruitment success and trial duration.
