For episode #8 of “The Conversational Flow” podcast, Brian and Adam spend the time discussing Receptor Occupancy Testing in Clinical Trials. Receptor occupancy (RO) assays are important in clinical trials because they provide valuable information about a drug’s binding characteristics and mechanism of action. Our hosts begin by outlining the general need for accurate RO calculation (per time point, per subject, etc), then they move on to pre-analytical risks (collection, shipment, transit, receipt, etc) and more specifics like staining and preparation process, acquisition and data analysis, harmonization between multiple testing facilities, and interpreting RO data.
