Dinner Meeting Title: E9 (R1): Estimands and Sensitivity Analysis in Clinical Trials (Addendum to ICH E9 – Statistical Principles for Clinical Trials)
 
Description:  An addendum to ICH E9 (Statistical Principles for Clinical Trials) is currently under development. The purpose of the addendum is to develop regulatory guidance, which promotes harmonised standards on the target of estimation (the estimand) in clinical trials, and describes an agreed framework for planning, conducting and interpreting sensitivity analyses. As with ICH E9, the Addendum will focus on statistical principles related to estimands and sensitivity analyses, not on the use or acceptability of specific statistical procedures or methods.

In this presentation, a new framework for aligning the estimand, the method of estimation (estimator), and sensitivity analyses for a given trial objective will be introduced.  The four attributes that together describe the estimand are discussed, as are the proposed strategies for addressing intercurrent events.  In the new framework, intercurrent events are defined as events that occur after treatment initiation and either preclude observation of the variable or affect its interpretation. With regards to the construction of estimands, general as well as therapeutic and experimental context considerations will be discussed. Finally, the presentation will address the impact of the new framework on trial design, conduct and analysis.
