Best Practices for ISS/ISE Dataset Development

Bharath Donthi to Present at PharmaSUG 2019

SDC is proud to announce that Bharath Donthi, Associate Director, SAS Programming, has been selected to present his paper on "Best Practices for ISS/ISE Dataset Development" at the PharmaSUG 2019 annual conference on Tuesday, June 18 at 1:30pm in Philadelphia, PA.

The integrated summary of safety (ISS) and integrated summary of efficacy (ISE) are vital components of a successful submission for regulatory approval in the pharmaceutical industry. ISS/ISE allows reviewers to easily compare individual outcomes and facilitates broad views of the investigational product's overall efficacy and safety profiles. However, building integrated datasets is a challenging task as it requires the programmer to achieve consistent structures and formats while also ensuring that each dataset is CDISC-compliant. This presentation will highlight best practices for the efficient and accurate creation of ISS/ISE datasets.

Automating SAS Program Table of Contents for Your FDA Submission Package

Lingjiao Qi to Present at PharmaSUG 2019

SDC is proud to announce that Lingjiao Qi, Ph.D., Senior Statistical Programmer, has been selected to present her paper on "Automating SAS Program Table of Contents for Your FDA Submission Package" at the PharmaSUG 2019 annual conference on Wednesday, June 19 at 9:30am in Philadelphia, PA.

Organizing SAS programs into a Table of Contents is highly recommended for FDA data submission packages; however, this is typically a manual and error-prone process. To increase accuracy and efficiency, SDC has developed an in-house macro tool to automatically generate a Table of Contents by reading each submitted SAS program and its associated files. This presentation will provide a detailed description of SDC's time-saving macro tool to assist SAS users in automatically generating the Table of Contents for their FDA data submission packages.
