Label-based flow cytometry allows the quantification of target features of interest by attaching fluorophores (labels) to antibodies and measuring the resulting fluorescence at the relevant wavelengths. This is widely used for cell sorting, i.e., determining cell types. Image flow cytometry is a technology which enables single cell images in cell sorting experiments. Problematically, directly using this data for classification involves manual inspection of many thousands of images.... Details

Designs of clinical trials with time to event primary endpoints usually rely on hazards being constant over time. A major challenge in immuno-oncology is the delayed onset of benefit with such therapies and the presence of non-proportional hazards. The impact of this needs to be accounted for in sample size calculations, analysis methodology and reporting. At this meeting, we will examine possible strategies to handle such features, which may not be fully known when the trial is... Details
