This book presents fundamental concepts and activitiesassociated with the design and implementation of clinical researchtrials. In biomedical research, clinical trials have emerged as one ofthe most important and commonly used research designs. This bookseeks to serve both as a guide and resource for investigators involvedin clinical trials both in academic and industrial settings. It hitsthe mark on both accounts. Although the primary audience is clearlymany different categories of health professionals involved in activeresearch, this book's topics and straightforward style will also appealto students and clinicians as well. The basic concepts andapplications are presented in a manner that clearly explains therationale and key steps of the research process. As a result, thisbook facilitates understanding and appreciation of clinical trialsamong noninvestigators even while it guides and assists the efforts ofexperienced researchers. The authors all have extensive experience inthe subject matter; this volume is their third edition and has beenupdated substantially. This is a very solid addition to theliterature and a title that is likely to be read and appreciated bymany different categories of health professionals. This will be veryuseful to most health science libraries.
