Introduction to Randomized Controlled Clinical Trials, Second Edition

by

Introduction to Randomized Controlled Clinical Trials, Second Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Evidence from randomized controlled clinical trials is widely accepted as the only sound basis for assessing the efficacy of new medical treatments. Statistical methods play a key role in all stages of these trials, including their justification, design, and analysis. This second edition of Introduction to Randomized Controlled Clinical Trials provides a concise presentation of the principles applied in this area. It details the concepts behind randomization and methods for designing and analyzing trials and also includes information on meta-analysis and specialized designs, such as cross-over trials, cluster-randomized designs, and equivalence studies.

This latest edition features new and revised references, examples, exercises, and a new chapter dedicated to binary outcomes and survival analysis. It also presents numerous examples taken from the medical literature, contains exercises at the end of each chapter, and offers solutions in an appendix. The author uses Minitab and R software throughout the text for implementing the methods that are presented.

Comprehensive and accessible, Introduction to Randomized Controlled Clinical Trials is well-suited for those familiar with elementary statistical ideas and methods who want to further their knowledge of the subject.

Book News Annotation:

Now in its second edition, this text is published by Chapman & Hall/CRC (the first edition was published by Edward Arnold). Matthews (U. of Newcastle) continues to emphasize statistics rather than the administrative aspects of clinical trials and adds material on more sophisticated methods for balancing treatment allocations and on analyses of clinical trials with binary or survival time outcomes. Twelve chapters, each with concluding exercises (solutions included at the end of the book), cover the definition of a randomized trial; bias; determination of how many patients are needed; methods of allocation; assessment, blinding, and placebos; analysis of results; monitoring accumulating data; subgroups and multiple outcomes; protocols; crossovers, equivalenc, and clusters; and meta-analyses.
