CASE Direct #1:DESTINY-Gastric Case Analysis

Inauguring webinar of the CASE Direct series



About this event

Every year, we watch world-class clinical trial presentations at ASCO and ESMO and appreciate the marvelous works done by leading global Principal Investigators (PI). As a professional in clinical trial space, do you want to learn what’s behind the success of these clinical trials and these masters? Have you also dreamt of just being like them and present your own clinical research results on ASCO and ESMO?

eChinaHealth and AOCRAS jointly launch the “CASE Direct” series webinars of world-class clinical trials case analysis. We borrow from case study methods prevailing in business schools, to dissect deeply on global clinical trials, and dialogue directly with the prominent global PI of these trials, to explore the "insider story and secret recipes” behind these global clinical trials and the masters.

The hottest area of drug development in recent years is the research and development of ADC drugs. There is not only the spectacular 226 million yuan failure of Bio-Thera's clinical trial, but also the amazing glory of RemeGen's $2.6 billion global licensing of its ADC drug. Nevertheless, the brightest star in the ADC field is undoubtedly the impeccable DESTINY series clinical trial and amazing results of Enhertu (DS-8201), developed by Daiichi Sankyo.

Our Inauguring webinar of the CASE Direct series focuses on DESTINY-Gastric case study and a direct dialogue with the trail PI, Dr. Kohei Shitara of Japan Cancer Center Hospital. Our second webinar focuses on DESTINEY-Breast03 case study and a direct dialogue with the trail PI, Dr. Sara Hurvitz of PI University of California, Los Angeles.
