ST 715 - Statistics for Clinical Trials


The randomized control clinical trial has become the gold standard scientific method for the evaluation of pharmaceuticals, biologics, devices, procedures, and diagnostic tests. Statistics plays an essential role throughout any clinical trial, from planning to conducting interim analysis to final analysis and reporting. Statistics is used to help identify the specific questions to be tested and the appropriate outcome to measure, to determine adequate sample size, to specify the randomization procedure, to establish a safety monitoring plan, and to detail the final analysis plan.
