In both acute and chronic pain studies, variability issues often arise. Patient retention, testing sites, samples sizes and primary efficacy among other factors all contribute to variability.

In this informative webinar, Premier Research’s Michael Kuss will present:

  •     Strategies for minimizing variability in pain studies
  •     Methods for accurately measuring the true therapeutic effect of study medication being tested

"Pain is an unforgiving master, and, because of nausea and other side effects of many pain medications, we see people drop out of analgesia clinical trials more frequently than in any other type of clinical drug trial," Kuss explains. "Our mission is to balance the scientific design of analgesia protocols against the need to keep pain patients from dropping out. Study doability versus data variability is where the rubber meets the road in analgesia clinical trials."
