Description

Summary

In parallel with the growth of American Thrombosis and Hemostasis Network's (ATHN) clinical studies, the number of new therapies for all congenital and acquired hematologic conditions, not just those for bleeding and clotting disorders, is increasing significantly. Some of the recently FDA-approved therapies for congenital and acquired hematologic conditions have yet to demonstrate long-term safety and effectiveness beyond the pivotal trials that led to their approval. In addition, results from well-controlled, pivotal studies often cannot be replicated once a therapy has been approved for general use.(1,2,3,4) In 2019 alone, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued approvals for twenty-four new therapies for congenital and acquired hematologic conditions.(5) In addition, almost 10,000 new studies for hematologic diseases are currently registered on www.clinicaltrials.gov.(6) With this increase in potential new therapies on the horizon, it is imperative that clinicians and clinical researchers in the field of non-neoplastic hematology have a uniform, secure, unbiased, and enduring method to collect long-term safety and efficacy data.

ATHN Transcends is a cohort study to determine the safety, effectiveness, and practice of therapies used in the treatment of participants with congenital or acquired non-neoplastic blood disorders and connective tissue disorders with bleeding tendency. The study consists of 7 cohorts with additional study "arms" and "modules" branching off from the cohorts.

The overarching objective of this longitudinal, observational study is to characterize the safety, effectiveness and practice of treatments for all people with congenital and acquired hematologic disorders in the US.

As emphasized in a recently published review, accurate, uniform and quality national data collection is critical in clinical research, particularly for longitudinal cohort studies covering a lifetime of biologic risk.(7)

Official Title

ATHN Transcends: A Natural History Cohort Study of the Safety, Effectiveness, and Practice of Treatment in People With Non-Neoplastic Hematologic Disorders

Details

This is a longitudinal, natural history observational cohort study being conducted at approximately 150 ATHN-affiliated sites. Participants will be followed for a minimum of 15 years. Harmonized data elements will be collected at the time of enrollment, quarterly, annually, and ad hoc. Base data will be collected for all participants. Specific data will be collected for participants enrolled in cohort-specific Arms and Modules.

Each participant will be assigned to a single cohort: Hemophilia, Von Willebrand Disease, Congenital Platelet Disorders, Rare Disorders, Bleeding Not Otherwise Specified (NOS), Thrombosis/Thrombophilia, or Non-Neoplastic Hematologic Conditions.

Study Arms and study Modules may be developed to provision disease and/or disease specific insights related to stakeholders, including but not limited to pharmaceutical companies, ATHN, and Hemophilia Treatment Centers (HTCs). Arms may branch off into product-specific data collection via Modules to be collected during the study, in conjunction with planned study assessments.
