Abstract: Oncology drug development has traditionally relied on categorical
metrics of tumor response and disease progression. Longitudinal data on
tumor size and other biomarkers of disease burden can be used to develop
models of disease progression with model-based estimates of drug effect.
These models can be used to discover more powerful endpoints for clinical
trials and predictive markers of response to therapy. The potential of
these models will be discussed using examples in renal cell carcinoma,
colorectal cancer, and castrate-resistant prostate cancer.
