External Control Arms Overview

An external control arm refers to the use of real-world data (RWD) to describe the progression of disease in a population that is not treated with the experimental drug candidate. External control arms can be used in single-arm clinical trials, in which all enrolled patients receive active treatment, often because a control arm is either infeasible or unethical.
