###### Reproducibility of Results

The statistical reproducibility of measurements (often in a clinical context), including the testing of instrumentation or techniques to obtain reproducible results. The concept includes reproducibility of physiological measurements, which may be used to develop rules to assess probability or prognosis, or response to a stimulus; reproducibility of occurrence of a condition; and reproducibility of experimental results.

###### Bias (Epidemiology)

Any deviation of results or inferences from the truth, or processes leading to such deviation. Bias can result from several sources: one-sided or systematic variations in measurement from the true value (systematic error); flaws in study design; deviation of inferences, interpretations, or analyses based on flawed data or data collection; etc. There is no sense of prejudice or subjectivity implied in the assessment of bias under these conditions.

###### Clinical Trials as Topic

Works about pre-planned studies of the safety, efficacy, or optimum dosage schedule (if appropriate) of one or more diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques selected according to predetermined criteria of eligibility and observed for predefined evidence of favorable and unfavorable effects. This concept includes clinical trials conducted both in the U.S. and in other countries.

###### Bayes Theorem

A theorem in probability theory named for Thomas Bayes (1702-1761). In epidemiology, it is used to obtain the probability of disease in a group of people with some characteristic on the basis of the overall rate of that disease and of the likelihood of that characteristic in healthy and diseased individuals. The most familiar application is in clinical decision analysis where it is used for estimating the probability of a particular diagnosis given the appearance of some symptoms or test result.

###### Gene Frequency

###### Likelihood Functions

###### Genome-Wide Association Study

###### Statistical Distributions

The complete summaries of the frequencies of the values or categories of a measurement made on a group of items, a population, or other collection of data. The distribution tells either how many or what proportion of the group was found to have each value (or each range of values) out of all the possible values that the quantitative measure can have.

###### Monte Carlo Method

In statistics, a technique for numerically approximating the solution of a mathematical problem by studying the distribution of some random variable, often generated by a computer. The name alludes to the randomness characteristic of the games of chance played at the gambling casinos in Monte Carlo. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed, 1993)

###### Alleles

###### Publication Bias

The influence of study results on the chances of publication and the tendency of investigators, reviewers, and editors to submit or accept manuscripts for publication based on the direction or strength of the study findings. Publication bias has an impact on the interpretation of clinical trials and meta-analyses. Bias can be minimized by insistence by editors on high-quality research, thorough literature reviews, acknowledgement of conflicts of interest, modification of peer review practices, etc.

###### Clinical Trials, Phase II as Topic

Works about studies that are usually controlled to assess the effectiveness and dosage (if appropriate) of diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques. These studies are performed on several hundred volunteers, including a limited number of patients with the target disease or disorder, and last about two years. This concept includes phase II studies conducted in both the U.S. and in other countries.

###### Meta-Analysis as Topic

A quantitative method of combining the results of independent studies (usually drawn from the published literature) and synthesizing summaries and conclusions which may be used to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness, plan new studies, etc., with application chiefly in the areas of research and medicine.

###### Effect Modifier, Epidemiologic

###### False Positive Reactions

###### Gene Expression Profiling

###### Cluster Analysis

###### Odds Ratio

The ratio of two odds. The exposure-odds ratio for case control data is the ratio of the odds in favor of exposure among cases to the odds in favor of exposure among noncases. The disease-odds ratio for a cohort or cross section is the ratio of the odds in favor of disease among the exposed to the odds in favor of disease among the unexposed. The prevalence-odds ratio refers to an odds ratio derived cross-sectionally from studies of prevalent cases.

###### Cohort Studies

Studies in which subsets of a defined population are identified. These groups may or may not be exposed to factors hypothesized to influence the probability of the occurrence of a particular disease or other outcome. Cohorts are defined populations which, as a whole, are followed in an attempt to determine distinguishing subgroup characteristics.

###### Regression Analysis

Procedures for finding the mathematical function which best describes the relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables. In linear regression (see LINEAR MODELS) the relationship is constrained to be a straight line and LEAST-SQUARES ANALYSIS is used to determine the best fit. In logistic regression (see LOGISTIC MODELS) the dependent variable is qualitative rather than continuously variable and LIKELIHOOD FUNCTIONS are used to find the best relationship. In multiple regression, the dependent variable is considered to depend on more than a single independent variable.

###### Statistics, Nonparametric

A class of statistical methods applicable to a large set of probability distributions used to test for correlation, location, independence, etc. In most nonparametric statistical tests, the original scores or observations are replaced by another variable containing less information. An important class of nonparametric tests employs the ordinal properties of the data. Another class of tests uses information about whether an observation is above or below some fixed value such as the median, and a third class is based on the frequency of the occurrence of runs in the data.

Control measures include placebos, active medicines, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trials are characterized as RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIALS AS TOPIC.

###### Clinical Trials Data Monitoring Committees

Committees established to review interim data and efficacy outcomes in clinical trials. The findings of these committees are used in deciding whether a trial should be continued as designed, changed, or terminated. Government regulations regarding federally-funded research involving human subjects (the "Common Rule") require (45 CFR 46.111) that research ethics committees reviewing large-scale clinical trials monitor the data collected using a mechanism such as a data monitoring committee. FDA regulations (21 CFR 50.24) require that such committees be established to monitor studies conducted in emergency settings.

###### Databases, Factual

Extensive collections, reputedly complete, of facts and data garnered from material of a specialized subject area and made available for analysis and application. The collection can be automated by various contemporary methods for retrieval. The concept should be differentiated from DATABASES, BIBLIOGRAPHIC which is restricted to collections of bibliographic references.

###### Ethical Review

A formal process of examination of patient care or research proposals for conformity with ethical standards. The review is usually conducted by an organized clinical or research ethics committee (CLINICAL ETHICS COMMITTEES or RESEARCH ETHICS COMMITTEES), sometimes by a subset of such a committee, an ad hoc group, or an individual ethicist (ETHICISTS).

Age as a constituent element or influence contributing to the production of a result. It may be applicable to the cause or the effect of a circumstance. It is used with human or animal concepts but should be differentiated from AGING, a physiological process, and TIME FACTORS which refers only to the passage of time.

###### Genetic Heterogeneity

The presence of apparently similar characters for which the genetic evidence indicates that different genes or different genetic mechanisms are involved in different pedigrees. In clinical settings genetic heterogeneity refers to the presence of a variety of genetic defects which cause the same disease, often due to mutations at different loci on the same gene, a finding common to many human diseases including ALZHEIMER DISEASE; CYSTIC FIBROSIS; LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE DEFICIENCY, FAMILIAL; and POLYCYSTIC KIDNEY DISEASES.

###### Biomedical Research

###### Evidence-Based Medicine

An approach of practicing medicine with the goal to improve and evaluate patient care. It requires the judicious integration of best research evidence with the patient's values to make decisions about medical care. This method is to help physicians make proper diagnosis, devise best testing plan, choose best treatment and methods of disease prevention, as well as develop guidelines for large groups of patients with the same disease.

This concept includes phase III studies conducted in both the U.S. and in other countries.

## The significance of non-significance. (1/2102)

We discuss the implications of empirical results that are statistically non-significant. Figures illustrate the interrelations among effect size, sample sizes and their dispersion, and the power of the experiment. All calculations (detailed in Appendix) are based on actual noncentral t-distributions, with no simplifying mathematical or statistical assumptions, and the contribution of each tail is determined separately. We emphasize the importance of reporting, wherever possible, the a priori power of a study so that the reader can see what the chances were of rejecting a null hypothesis that was false. As a practical alternative, we propose that non-significant inference be qualified by an estimate of the sample size that would be required in a subsequent experiment in order to attain an acceptable level of power under the assumption that the observed effect size in the sample is the same as the true effect size in the population; appropriate plots are provided for a power of 0.8. We also point out that successive outcomes of independent experiments each of which may not be statistically significant on its own, can be easily combined to give an overall p value that often turns out to be significant. And finally, in the event that the p value is high and the power sufficient, a non-significant result may stand and be published as such. (+info)## A simulation study of confounding in generalized linear models for air pollution epidemiology. (2/2102)

Confounding between the model covariates and causal variables (which may or may not be included as model covariates) is a well-known problem in regression models used in air pollution epidemiology. This problem is usually acknowledged but hardly ever investigated, especially in the context of generalized linear models. Using synthetic data sets, the present study shows how model overfit, underfit, and misfit in the presence of correlated causal variables in a Poisson regression model affect the estimated coefficients of the covariates and their confidence levels. The study also shows how this effect changes with the ranges of the covariates and the sample size. There is qualitative agreement between these study results and the corresponding expressions in the large-sample limit for the ordinary linear models. Confounding of covariates in an overfitted model (with covariates encompassing more than just the causal variables) does not bias the estimated coefficients but reduces their significance. The effect of model underfit (with some causal variables excluded as covariates) or misfit (with covariates encompassing only noncausal variables), on the other hand, leads to not only erroneous estimated coefficients, but a misguided confidence, represented by large t-values, that the estimated coefficients are significant. The results of this study indicate that models which use only one or two air quality variables, such as particulate matter [less than and equal to] 10 microm and sulfur dioxide, are probably unreliable, and that models containing several correlated and toxic or potentially toxic air quality variables should also be investigated in order to minimize the situation of model underfit or misfit. (+info)## Laboratory assay reproducibility of serum estrogens in umbilical cord blood samples. (3/2102)

We evaluated the reproducibility of laboratory assays for umbilical cord blood estrogen levels and its implications on sample size estimation. Specifically, we examined correlation between duplicate measurements of the same blood samples and estimated the relative contribution of variability due to study subject and assay batch to the overall variation in measured hormone levels. Cord blood was collected from a total of 25 female babies (15 Caucasian and 10 Chinese-American) from full-term deliveries at two study sites between March and December 1997. Two serum aliquots per blood sample were assayed, either at the same time or 4 months apart, for estrone, total estradiol, weakly bound estradiol, and sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). Correlation coefficients (Pearson's r) between duplicate measurements were calculated. We also estimated the components of variance for each hormone or protein associated with variation among subjects and variation between assay batches. Pearson's correlation coefficients were >0.90 for all of the compounds except for total estradiol when all of the subjects were included. The intraclass correlation coefficient, defined as a proportion of the total variance due to between-subject variation, for estrone, total estradiol, weakly bound estradiol, and SHBG were 92, 80, 85, and 97%, respectively. The magnitude of measurement error found in this study would increase the sample size required for detecting a difference between two populations for total estradiol and SHBG by 25 and 3%, respectively. (+info)## A note on power approximations for the transmission/disequilibrium test. (4/2102)

The transmission/disequilibrium test (TDT) is a popular method for detection of the genetic basis of a disease. Investigators planning such studies require computation of sample size and power, allowing for a general genetic model. Here, a rigorous method is presented for obtaining the power approximations of the TDT for samples consisting of families with either a single affected child or affected sib pairs. Power calculations based on simulation show that these approximations are quite precise. By this method, it is also shown that a previously published power approximation of the TDT is erroneous. (+info)## Comparison of linkage-disequilibrium methods for localization of genes influencing quantitative traits in humans. (5/2102)

Linkage disequilibrium has been used to help in the identification of genes predisposing to certain qualitative diseases. Although several linkage-disequilibrium tests have been developed for localization of genes influencing quantitative traits, these tests have not been thoroughly compared with one another. In this report we compare, under a variety of conditions, several different linkage-disequilibrium tests for identification of loci affecting quantitative traits. These tests use either single individuals or parent-child trios. When we compared tests with equal samples, we found that the truncated measured allele (TMA) test was the most powerful. The trait allele frequencies, the stringency of sample ascertainment, the number of marker alleles, and the linked genetic variance affected the power, but the presence of polygenes did not. When there were more than two trait alleles at a locus in the population, power to detect disequilibrium was greatly diminished. The presence of unlinked disequilibrium (D'*) increased the false-positive error rates of disequilibrium tests involving single individuals but did not affect the error rates of tests using family trios. The increase in error rates was affected by the stringency of selection, the trait allele frequency, and the linked genetic variance but not by polygenic factors. In an equilibrium population, the TMA test is most powerful, but, when adjusted for the presence of admixture, Allison test 3 becomes the most powerful whenever D'*>.15. (+info)## Measurement of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis prescription adherence using a novel approach. (6/2102)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of the study was to test a novel approach to monitoring the adherence of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients to their dialysis prescription. DESIGN: A descriptive observational study was done in which exchange behaviors were monitored over a 2-week period of time. SETTING: Patients were recruited from an outpatient dialysis center. PARTICIPANTS: A convenience sample of patients undergoing CAPD at Piedmont Dialysis Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina was recruited for the study. Of 31 CAPD patients, 20 (64.5%) agreed to participate. MEASURES: Adherence of CAPD patients to their dialysis prescription was monitored using daily logs and an electronic monitoring device (the Medication Event Monitoring System, or MEMS; APREX, Menlo Park, California, U.S.A.). Patients recorded in their logs their exchange activities during the 2-week observation period. Concurrently, patients were instructed to deposit the pull tab from their dialysate bag into a MEMS bottle immediately after performing each exchange. The MEMS bottle was closed with a cap containing a computer chip that recorded the date and time each time the bottle was opened. RESULTS: One individual's MEMS device malfunctioned and thus the data presented in this report are based upon the remaining 19 patients. A significant discrepancy was found between log data and MEMS data, with MEMS data indicating a greater number and percentage of missed exchanges. MEMS data indicated that some patients concentrated their exchange activities during the day, with shortened dwell times between exchanges. Three indices were developed for this study: a measure of the average time spent in noncompliance, and indices of consistency in the timing of exchanges within and between days. Patients who were defined as consistent had lower scores on the noncompliance index compared to patients defined as inconsistent (p = 0.015). CONCLUSIONS: This study describes a methodology that may be useful in assessing adherence to the peritoneal dialysis regimen. Of particular significance is the ability to assess the timing of exchanges over the course of a day. Clinical implications are limited due to issues of data reliability and validity, the short-term nature of the study, the small sample, and the fact that clinical outcomes were not considered in this methodology study. Additional research is needed to further develop this data-collection approach. (+info)## Statistical power of MRI monitored trials in multiple sclerosis: new data and comparison with previous results. (7/2102)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the durations of the follow up and the reference population sizes needed to achieve optimal and stable statistical powers for two period cross over and parallel group design clinical trials in multiple sclerosis, when using the numbers of new enhancing lesions and the numbers of active scans as end point variables. METHODS: The statistical power was calculated by means of computer simulations performed using MRI data obtained from 65 untreated relapsing-remitting or secondary progressive patients who were scanned monthly for 9 months. The statistical power was calculated for follow up durations of 2, 3, 6, and 9 months and for sample sizes of 40-100 patients for parallel group and of 20-80 patients for two period cross over design studies. The stability of the estimated powers was evaluated by applying the same procedure on random subsets of the original data. RESULTS: When using the number of new enhancing lesions as the end point, the statistical power increased for all the simulated treatment effects with the duration of the follow up until 3 months for the parallel group design and until 6 months for the two period cross over design. Using the number of active scans as the end point, the statistical power steadily increased until 6 months for the parallel group design and until 9 months for the two period cross over design. The power estimates in the present sample and the comparisons of these results with those obtained by previous studies with smaller patient cohorts suggest that statistical power is significantly overestimated when the size of the reference data set decreases for parallel group design studies or the duration of the follow up decreases for two period cross over studies. CONCLUSIONS: These results should be used to determine the duration of the follow up and the sample size needed when planning MRI monitored clinical trials in multiple sclerosis. (+info)## Power and sample size calculations in case-control studies of gene-environment interactions: comments on different approaches. (8/2102)

Power and sample size considerations are critical for the design of epidemiologic studies of gene-environment interactions. Hwang et al. (Am J Epidemiol 1994;140:1029-37) and Foppa and Spiegelman (Am J Epidemiol 1997;146:596-604) have presented power and sample size calculations for case-control studies of gene-environment interactions. Comparisons of calculations using these approaches and an approach for general multivariate regression models for the odds ratio previously published by Lubin and Gail (Am J Epidemiol 1990; 131:552-66) have revealed substantial differences under some scenarios. These differences are the result of a highly restrictive characterization of the null hypothesis in Hwang et al. and Foppa and Spiegelman, which results in an underestimation of sample size and overestimation of power for the test of a gene-environment interaction. A computer program to perform sample size and power calculations to detect additive or multiplicative models of gene-environment interactions using the Lubin and Gail approach will be available free of charge in the near future from the National Cancer Institute.

- Sample size calculation ascertains the correct sample size that would represent the population as a whole. (statisticssolutions.com)
- Sample size calculation for different statistical testing varies depending on the formulae used. (statisticssolutions.com)
- Sample size calculation cannot be performed with only one method or technique. (statisticssolutions.com)
- Sample size calculation is legitimate for most relevant tests, like the t test , z test, f test, etc. (statisticssolutions.com)
- Sample size calculation depends on the different statistical tests that are to be carried out, because with a change in statistical tests, the results are also dissimilar. (statisticssolutions.com)
- Depending on the size of the population or the accuracy of the result, the size of the sample in sample size calculation varies. (statisticssolutions.com)
- Sample size calculation depends on many factors that are more commonly known as qualitative factors. (statisticssolutions.com)
- These are important to help calculate any kind of sample size calculation and determination. (statisticssolutions.com)
- In qualitative research , the sample size in sample size calculation is usually small. (statisticssolutions.com)
- Sample size calculation in biomedical practice is typically based on the problematic Wald method for a binomial proportion, with potentially dangerous consequences. (mdpi.com)

- I provide practical guidance for sample size calculation for ordinal outcomes in CRTs. (bl.uk)
- This assumption severely compromises one's ability to compute required sample sizes for high-powered indirect standardization , as in contexts where sample size calculation is desired, there are usually no means of knowing this distribution. (bvsalud.org)
- This paper presents novel statistical methodology to perform sample size calculation for the standardized incidence ratio without knowing the covariate distribution of the index hospital and without collecting information from the index hospital to estimate this covariate distribution. (bvsalud.org)

###### Calculate3

- Along with the estimation of the sampled volume, the evolution of the SNR (signal to noise ratio) as a function of the laser energy was investigated as well. (archives-ouvertes.fr)
- Estimation of Li-Ion Degradation Test Sample Sizes Required to Understand Cell-to-Cell Variabili. (rwth-aachen.de)
- Item Response Theory (IRT) has been considered an important development for the modern psychometrics because of its several advantages compared to Classic Test Theory (CTT), such as: the virtual invariance of item parameters in respect to the sample used in their estimation, more reliable and interpretable identification of person`s ability and more efficient procedures for test equating. (bvsalud.org)

###### Central Limit T3

- So the whole focus of this video is when we think about the sampling distribution, which is what we're going to use to generate our interval, instead of assuming that the sampling distribution is normal like we did in many other videos using the central limit theorem and all of that, we're going to tweak the sampling distribution. (khanacademy.org)
- For an explanation of why the sample estimate is normally distributed, study the Central Limit Theorem . (calculator.net)
- The central limit theorem states that the sampling distribution of the mean approaches a normal distribution, as the sample size increases. (thelittleaussiebakery.com)

###### Estimate16

- A set of R functions for calculating sample size requirements using three different Bayesian criteria in the context of designing an experiment to estimate a normal mean or the difference between two normal means. (mcgill.ca)
- And a t-distribution is essentially, the best way to think about is it's almost engineered so it gives a better estimate of your confidence intervals and all of that when you do have a small sample size. (khanacademy.org)
- So normally what we do is we find the estimate of the true standard deviation, and then we say that the standard deviation of the sampling distribution is equal to the true standard deviation of our population divided by the square root of n. (khanacademy.org)
- And in particular, this is going to be a particularly bad estimate when we have a small sample size, a size less than 30. (khanacademy.org)
- So when you are estimating the standard deviation where you don't know it, you're estimating it with your sample standard deviation, and your sample size is small, and you're going to use this to estimate the standard deviation of your sampling distribution, you don't assume your sampling distribution is a normal distribution. (khanacademy.org)
- Thus, to estimate p in the population, a sample of n individuals could be taken from the population, and the sample proportion, p̂ , calculated for sampled individuals who have brown hair. (calculator.net)
- Unfortunately, unless the full population is sampled, the estimate p̂ most likely won't equal the true value p , since p̂ suffers from sampling noise, i.e. it depends on the particular individuals that were sampled. (calculator.net)
- The uncertainty in a given random sample (namely that is expected that the proportion estimate, p̂ , is a good, but not perfect, approximation for the true proportion p ) can be summarized by saying that the estimate p̂ is normally distributed with mean p and variance p(1-p)/n . (calculator.net)
- The confidence level gives just how "likely" this is - e.g., a 95% confidence level indicates that it is expected that an estimate p̂ lies in the confidence interval for 95% of the random samples that could be taken. (calculator.net)
- This practice is intended for use in determining the sample size required to estimate, with specified precision, a measure of quality of a lot or process. (astm.org)

- Leave blank if unlimited population size. (calculator.net)
- The confidence level is a measure of certainty regarding how accurately a sample reflects the population being studied within a chosen confidence interval. (calculator.net)
- A sample is a subset of the population. (statisticssolutions.com)
- It is through samples that researchers are able to draw specific conclusions regarding the population. (statisticssolutions.com)
- i.e. there is no significant difference in the mean of the sample drawn from the population. (statisticssolutions.com)
- For example, if you use a confidence interval of 4 and 47% percent of your sample picks an answer you can be "sure" that if you had asked the question of the entire relevant population between 43% (47-4) and 51% (47+4) would have picked that answer. (surveysystem.com)
- The larger your sample size, the more sure you can be that their answers truly reflect the population. (surveysystem.com)
- Often you may not know the exact population size. (surveysystem.com)
- The mathematics of probability prove that the size of the population is irrelevant unless the size of the sample exceeds a few percent of the total population you are examining. (surveysystem.com)
- For this reason, The Survey System ignores the population size when it is "large" or unknown. (surveysystem.com)
- Population size is only likely to be a factor when you work with a relatively small and known group of people ( e.g. , the members of an association). (surveysystem.com)
- In other words, given a sample size of 100 infections (representing 75% of the total population), a linkage criteria with a specificity of 99% for identifying infections linked by transmission and a specificity of 95%, fewer than 25% of identified pairs will represent true transmission events. (fhcrc.org)
- In survey research, 100 samples should be identified for each major sub-group in the population and between 20 to 50 samples for each minor sub-group. (thelittleaussiebakery.com)
- The range of the sampling distribution is smaller than the range of the original population. (thelittleaussiebakery.com)
- This phenomenon is particularly evident in Gulf countries, such as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) (5), where oil wealth relative to the small population size has prompted rapid socioenvironmental and nutritional shifts. (who.int)
- In this case, the errors are the deviations of the observations from the population mean, while the residuals are the deviations of the observations from the sample mean. (wikipedia.org)
- The sample mean could serve as a good estimator of the population mean. (wikipedia.org)
- To characterize the patterns of attempting to quit smoking and smoking cessation among U.S. adults during 1990 and 1991, CDC's National Health Interview Survey-Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (NHIS-HPDP) supplement collected self-reported information on cigarette smoking from a representative sample of the U.S. civilian, noninstitutionalized population aged greater than or equal to 18 years.

- This indicates that for a given confidence level, the larger your sample size, the smaller your confidence interval. (surveysystem.com)
- However, the relationship is not linear ( i.e. , doubling the sample size does not halve the confidence interval). (surveysystem.com)
- To determine the confidence interval for a specific answer your sample has given, you can use the percentage picking that answer and get a smaller interval. (surveysystem.com)

###### Effectiveness9

- I have noted that in some organisations there are no separate sample that has been tested as a part of the walkthrough and the sample of the walkthrough and the test of operating effectiveness is merged. (sarbanes-oxley-forum.com)
- We also include the walkthrough testing in our sample of operating effectiveness testing and they have raised no concern about that either. (sarbanes-oxley-forum.com)
- However, some decision makers have a preference for wholly stochastic cost-effectiveness analyses, particularly if the sampled data are derived from randomised controlled trials (RCTs). (nih.gov)
- To illustrate how different requirements for wholly stochastic cost-effectiveness evidence could have a significant impact on two of the major determinants of new drug development costs and times, namely RCT sample size and study duration. (nih.gov)
- Using data collected prospectively in a clinical evaluation, sample sizes were calculated for a number of hypothetical cost-effectiveness study design scenarios. (nih.gov)
- The sample sizes required for the cost-effectiveness study scenarios were mostly larger than those for the baseline clinical trial design. (nih.gov)
- Formal requirements for wholly stochastic cost-effectiveness evidence based on the standard frequentist paradigm have the potential to increase the size, duration and number of RCTs significantly and hence the costs and timelines associated with new product development. (nih.gov)
