San Francisco, CA (May 20, 2021) – BUSINESS WIRE – LARVOL, the leading provider of data and intelligence solutions for the oncology, pharmaceutical, and biotech industries, today announced a full line-up of activities during the 2021American Society of Clinical Oncology Virtual Annual Meeting (ASCO)*. LARVOL will present its poster and host events to both recognize top oncology influencers and curate expert insights from ASCO sessions.
The LARVOL poster titled, “Control arm heterogeneity in trials for unselected advanced triple-negative breast cancer” will be available via On-Demand streaming on Friday June 4 at 9 AM EST. This study explores the application of LARVOL’s clinical data, CLIN, in assessing heterogeneity in control arm time-to-event outcomes. CLIN provides researchers and physicians access to more than 5,000 curated immuno-oncology clinical trials and over20,000 exhibits, allowing them to search and analyze data across all clinical trials within a specific cancer type. CLIN digitizes all tables, graphs, and figures from clinical trial research and data released from publications, conferences, and guidelines, resulting in the most up-to-date repository of all available oncology trial data in one platform, in real time. CLIN is set to launch officially during ASCO, but is available here for preview.
“LARVOL’s poster presentation is an exciting recognition of the innovative work LARVOL is doing to collaborate with oncology thought leaders, curate research and insights and provide researchers access to the universe of clinical trial data to improve the treatment of cancer. CLIN compiled and digitized clinical trial outcomes data that our team applied to this research effort,” said Bruno Larvol, CEO and Founder of LARVOL. Poster details:
