Overview

This text is intended for the clinical researcher who is interested in designing a clinical trial and developing a protocol. It is also of value to researchers and practitioners who must critically evaluate the literature of published clinical trials and assess the merits of each trial and the implications for the care and treatment of patients. The text uses numerous examples of published clinical trials from a variety of medical disciplines to meaningfully illustrate the fundamentals. Technical design issues such as sample size are considered, but the technical details have been suppressed as much as possible through the use of graphs and tables. While the technical material has been kept to a minimum, the statistician may still find the principles and fundamentals presented in this text useful both in a consulting and teaching capacity.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bernard J. Turnock, MD, MPH (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Description: This book presents fundamental concepts and activities associated with the design and implementation of clinical research trials. In biomedical research, clinical trials have emerged as one of the most important and commonly used research designs.
Purpose: This book seeks to serve both as a guide and resource for investigators involved in clinical trials both in academic and industrial settings. It hits the mark on both accounts.
Audience: Although the primary audience is clearly many different categories of health professionals involved in active research, this book's topics and straightforward style will also appeal to students and clinicians as well.
Features: The basic concepts and applications are presented in a manner that clearly explains the rationale and key steps of the research process. As a result, this book facilitates understanding and appreciation of clinical trials among noninvestigators even while it guides and assists the efforts of experienced researchers. The authors all have extensive experience in the subject matter; this volume is their third edition and has been updated substantially.
Assessment: This is a very solid addition to the literature and a title that is likely to be read and appreciated by many different categories of health professionals. This will be very useful to most health science libraries.
