Ken Gordon, MD: Role of Placebo in the UltIMMa Trials


well so the placebo control is actually
really really important a lot of the comparator trials they have been done
most recently in a sort of post Marketing approach have been non
foreseeable control trials and what happens we a monopolist uber control
trial is outcomes are better everyone knows they’re on active drug and it’s
human nature to know that things the likelihood of patient response is going
to go up so they have to assume control is extremely extremely important and so
when you look at registry trials the trials that are pre approval almost
always you have to have a placebo arm in them it’s short it’s not the full 52
weeks it’s 16 weeks but the fact that it’s there actually grounds the data
much more accurately than if you don’t have a placebo alarm and so even if it’s
a short pussy bow arm it really actually probably lives greater credence to the
study versus some of the other trials that you look at where they don’t have a
super arm that we’re done post marketing
