Kluver Memorial Symposium: Biomarkers and Clinical Trials in Neurovascular Disease

Chicago, IL US
September 12, 2018
A number of rare neurovascular pathologies contribute to the burden of stroke and resulting disabilities and death. Dozens of pathologic entities have been studied extensively with genetic contributions and molecular mechanisms well elucidated. Extensive laboratory research has linked these diseases to faithful biomarkers and realistic therapeutic targets. Nevertheless, these advances have remained an “embarrassment of riches” without meaningful clinical applications. Much of the obstacles relate to the paucity of applicable methodologies of clinical and analytic biomarker validations, multisite reproducibility, and realistic clinical trial designs.
 
This is beginning to change with a number of novel scientific tools and strategies bridging the bedside to the clinic. This workshop brings together scientists and clinicians to explore some of these advances and their application to specific neurovascular diseases.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for students, residents, fellows and other trainees at all levels, and clinicians and scientists in neuroscience, biostatistics, computational biology, neurobiology, neurology, neurosurgery, pathology, neuroradiology interested in bench and clinical science related to neurovascular diseases.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be able to:

  • Describe trial design, including novel Bayesian methods, applicable to Phase I and II trials of rare diseases;
  • State the categories of biomarkers, their analytic and clinical validation, and potential certification;
  • Discuss strategies for deploying biomarkers and novel trial designs in specific neurovascular diseases;
  • Recall newly funded NIND/NIH initiatives in trial readiness and proof of concept trial applied to cavernous angiomas with symptomatic hemorrhage (CASH).
