Abstract: A poster presentation regarding outcomes studied in leukaemia clinical trials. Introduction: Heterogeneity in outcomes measured in clinical trials (CTs) and clinical studies for antineoplastic therapies presents as a major barrier to evidence synthesis, increasing the complexity of regulatory, policy and healthcare decision-making. Highlighting the magnitude of inconsistency, sources report that over 25,000 of outcomes in cancer trials have only been used once or twice. Aims: •To identify unique efficacy parameters investigated in leukaemia CTs; •To determine the degree of variability of efficacy outcomes studied in trials for the following four main leukaemia subtypes: Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL), Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML), Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL) and Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia (CML).
