Oxford, UK (PRWEB UK) 8 April 2013
Tessella, the international provider of science powered technology and consulting services and Berry Consultants, leaders in the Bayesian approach to medical statistics, are hosting a free online webinar for all life sciences professionals interested in deepening their understanding of Adaptive Clinical Trials.
Join Berry Consultant’s Jason Connor and Kristine Broglio on Tuesday the 16th of April 2013, as they discuss the lessons learnt designing a comparative effectiveness trial comparing 4 anti-hypertensive drugs.
The READAPT investigators redesigned the ALLHAT trial (a 40,000-patient comparative effectiveness trial comparing 4 anti-hypertensive drugs) using modern-day adaptive techniques but using only the information available when ALLHAT was designed. Then we executed the trial using the actual ALLHAT data. This discussion describes the results of re-executing ALLHAT using Bayesian adaptive trial methods, the time-savings of the adaptive design, and the patient-benefit due to the adaptive randomization.
Date: Tuesday 16th of April 2013
Time: 3:00pm GMT (10:00am EST, 4:00pm CET) for 1 hour plus open time for questions
