Free sample

Since the publication of the first edition in 2000, there has been an explosive growth of literature in biopharmaceutical research and development of new medicines. This encyclopedia (1) provides a comprehensive and unified presentation of designs and analyses used at different stages of the drug development process, (2) gives a well-balanced summary of current regulatory requirements, and (3) describes recently developed statistical methods in the pharmaceutical sciences.

Features of the Fourth Edition:

1. 78 new and revised entries have been added for a total of 308 chapters and a fourth volume has been added to encompass the increased number of chapters.

2. Revised and updated entries reflect changes and recent developments in regulatory requirements for the drug review/approval process and statistical designs and methodologies.

3. Additional topics include multiple-stage adaptive trial design in clinical research, translational medicine, design and analysis of biosimilar drug development, big data analytics, and real world evidence for clinical research and development.

4. A table of contents organized by stages of biopharmaceutical development provides easy access to relevant topics.

About the author

Shein-Chung Chow, Ph.D. is currently a Professor at the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, North Carolina. Prior to joining Duke University, he was the Director of TCOG (Taiwan Cooperative Oncology Group) Statistical Center and the Executive Director of National Clinical Trial Network Coordination Center. Prior to that, Dr. Chow also held various positions in the pharmaceutical industry such as Vice President, Biostatistics, Data Management, and Medical Writing at Millennium Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Cambridge, MA; Executive Director, Statistics and Clinical Programming at Covance, Inc., Director and Department Head at Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Plansboro, NJ; Senior Statistician and Research Statistician at Parke-Davis Pharmaceutical Division, Warner-Lambert Company, Ann Arbor, MI and Wyeth-Ayerst Laboratories, Rouses Point, NY. Through these positions, Dr. Chow provided technical supervision and guidance to project teams on statistical issues and presentations before partners, regulatory agencies or scientific bodies, defending the appropriateness of statistical methods used in clinical trial design or data analyses or the validity of reported statistical inferences. Dr. Chow identified the best statistical and data management practices, organizes and leads working parties for development of statistical design, analyses and presentation applications, and participated on Data Safety Monitoring Boards in clinical research and development.

Since 1945, "The Annual Deming Conference on Applied Statistics" has been an important event in the statistics profession. In Clinical Trial Biostatistics and Biopharmaceutical Applications, prominent speakers from past Deming conferences present novel biostatistical methodologies in clinical trials as well as up-to-date biostatistical applications from the pharmaceutical industry.

Divided into five sections, the book begins with emerging issues in clinical trial design and analysis, including the roles of modeling and simulation, the pros and cons of randomization procedures, the design of Phase II dose-ranging trials, thorough QT/QTc clinical trials, and assay sensitivity and the constancy assumption in noninferiority trials. The second section examines adaptive designs in drug development, discusses the consequences of group-sequential and adaptive designs, and illustrates group sequential design in R. The third section focuses on oncology clinical trials, covering competing risks, escalation with overdose control (EWOC) dose finding, and interval-censored time-to-event data.

In the fourth section, the book describes multiple test problems with applications to adaptive designs, graphical approaches to multiple testing, the estimation of simultaneous confidence intervals for multiple comparisons, and weighted parametric multiple testing methods. The final section discusses the statistical analysis of biomarkers from omics technologies, biomarker strategies applicable to clinical development, and the statistical evaluation of surrogate endpoints.

This book clarifies important issues when designing and analyzing clinical trials, including several misunderstood and unresolved challenges. It will help readers choose the right method for their biostatistical application. Each chapter is self-contained with references.

This book provides an up-to-date review of the general principles of and techniques for confirmatory adaptive designs. Confirmatory adaptive designs are a generalization of group sequential designs. With these designs, interim analyses are performed in order to stop the trial prematurely under control of the Type I error rate. In adaptive designs, it is also permissible to perform a data-driven change of relevant aspects of the study design at interim stages. This includes, for example, a sample-size reassessment, a treatment-arm selection or a selection of a pre-specified sub-population.

Essentially, this adaptive methodology was introduced in the 1990s. Since then, it has become popular and the object of intense discussion and still represents a rapidly growing field of statistical research. This book describes adaptive design methodology at an elementary level, while also considering designing and planning issues as well as methods for analyzing an adaptively planned trial. This includes estimation methods and methods for the determination of an overall p-value. Part I of the book provides the group sequential methods that are necessary for understanding and applying the adaptive design methodology supplied in Parts II and III of the book. The book contains many examples that illustrate use of the methods for practical application.

The book is primarily written for applied statisticians from academia and industry who are interested in confirmatory adaptive designs. It is assumed that readers are familiar with the basic principles of descriptive statistics, parameter estimation and statistical testing. This book will also be suitable for an advanced statistical course for applied statisticians or clinicians with a sound statistical background.
