Notes on Clinical Trial Methodology

  • Richard Peto
Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Medical Informatics book series (LNMED, volume 4)

Abstract

The chief points that I wish to make about clinical trial methodology have already been published, either in our joint article on clinical trial methodology (British Journal of Cancer 1976, 1977: Design and Analysis of Randomised Trials Requiring Prolonged Observation of Each Patient. Part I:34, 585–611 and Part II:35 1–39) or in a more recent article on this same subject (Biomedicine 1978: Clinical Trial Methodology, 28, 24–36). Because the Biomedicine article discusses in detail the main aspects of trial design which I wish to touch on today I have circulated reprints of it to all participants at this meeting. Further aspects of trial design, and an account written for nonstatisticians of just those few statistical methods which I feel that they should be really familiar with, may be found in the Br.J.Ca. article.
