Bayesian Study Design Article: Using Interim Analyses to Improve Efficiency in Drug Development

21st February 2011

Quanticate’s second whitepaper shows how the Bayesian framework is highly appropriate for planning and executing interim analyses:

  • The rationale for using a Bayesian approach to interim analyses is explained
  • The formulation of interim decision rules on the basis of posterior and predictive probability is introduced and evaluated using a case study
  • The value of simulations are included to assess the merits of the different decision rules and the relative timing of interim analyses is illustrated
