Brief Summary

International registry for cancer patients evaluating the feasibility and clinical utility of an Artificial Intelligence-based precision oncology clinical trial matching tool, powered by a virtual tumor boards (VTB) program, and its clinical impact on pts with advanced cancer to facilitate clinical trial enrollment (CTE), as well as the financial impact, and potential outcomes of the intervention.

Detailed Description

The SYNERGY Registry is an international prospective, observational cohort study of eligible
adult and pediatric pts with advanced solid and hematological malignancies, for whom the
decision to consider CTE has already been made by their primary providers (PP). Using a
proprietary application programming interface (API) linked to existing electronic health
records (EHR) platforms, individual clinical data is extracted, analyzed and matched to a
parametric database of existing institutional and non-institutional CT. Machine learning
algorithms allow for dynamic matching based on CT allocation and availability for optimized
matching. Patients voluntarily enroll into the registry, which is non-interventional with no
protocol-mandated tests/procedures — all treatment decisions are made at the discretion of PP
in consultation with their pts, based on the AI CT matching report, and VTB support. CTE will
be assessed on variables including biomarkers, barriers to enrollment. Study duration
anticipated as ~36 mo (~24-mo enrollment followed by 12 mo of data collection, to occur every
3 mo). The primary analysis will be performed 12 mo after last pt enrolled. The impact time
to initiation of CTE on PFS and OS will be estimated by Kaplan-Meier and Cox multivariable
survival analysis. Enrollment is ongoing, with a target of ≥1500 patients.
