This panel brought together speakers from the morning sessions to consider the possibility of applying a drug trial design similar to the ones emerging from the Alzheimer’s Disease and cancer communities. The feasibility of applying such a model was considered with the biology of the disease, regulatory concerns, and pharmaceutical needs in mind.
