I am please to announce the Clinical Trial Risk Tool, which is now open to the public to use.
The tool is available at https://app.clinicaltrialrisk.org.
The tool consists of a web interface where a user can upload a protocol in PDF or Word format, and ultimately a number of features were extracted, such as number of subjects, statistical analysis plan, effect size, number of countries, etc.
The NLP model was developed as an ensemble of components which extracted different aspects of information from the text, including rule-based (hand-coded) and neural network designs.
The model’s output features were then condensed down via a clinical trials risk model which ultimately produces a three-level risk traffic light score. The full analysis can be exported as XLSX or PDF.
