LunaPBC and QualityMetric Partner on New Patient-Reported Outcome Instrument Development Initiative for Oncology

QualityMetric, an IQVIA business (QM), has contracted with LunaPBC to build a patient-driven oncology instrument for measuring the impacts on physical functioning across many cancers.

Cancer group leaders are encouraged to join in this effort to ensure the voice of their community is incorporated. Partnering groups will have access to aggregate and group-specific insights to conduct follow-on research or build their own surveys to address areas such as unmet clinical needs and improper care management.

This project aligns with the FDA’s Core Patient-Reported Outcomes in Cancer Clinical Trials guidance document which recommends sponsors collect a core set of PRO concepts in cancer clinical trials and related considerations for instrument selection and trial design. The output of this project will be a new validated physical functioning instrument reflective of patient’s priorities and lived experience with cancer for use in clinical trials.

A cornerstone of this project is Luna’s unbiased group listening methodology, Community Driven Innovation (CDI), combined with QM’s PRO measurement expertise to deliver a regulatory-grade validated instrument in approximately 12 months. Besides saving many months of valuable time and costs, this process delivers more representative assessment of the experience and goals of patients, and enables clearer and broader opportunities for clinically-relevant endpoints, including quality of life measures.

CDI is a component of Luna’s digital community-to-discovery platform that seamlessly integrates registry database architecture and validated ePRO and eCOA solutions for multimodal and longitudinal data aggregation, on a cloud-based data visualization and analytics environment that operates in compliance with worldwide consumer data privacy laws.

In addition to aligning with the FDA guidance, this new physical functioning instrument will be cross-calibrated with QM’s SF-36v2 physical functioning scale in order to leverage the vast interpretation guidelines accumulated over the last 30 years of clinical research with the SF-36v2.

“This instrument will be part of an ongoing longitudinal effort to build natural history of disease data. Such natural history data will provide clinical trial investigators invaluable context for the interpretation of clinical trial outcomes.” Stated Mark Kosinski, Chief Commercial Officer, QM.

In this study, participants are asked to take a 15-20 minute survey and share answers to key questions about physical functioning using a simple audio recording intake method.

The study is open to individuals who are 13 years of age or older, who are currently managing cancer or who have ever had cancer.

Advocacy or research groups interested in learning more may contact, Aspen Perry, Marketing Manager with QualityMetric, to set up a meeting with QM’s senior science team.
