Title: Efficiency and Estimation for Adaptive Designs with Unblinded Sample Size Re-estimation
Presenter: Cyrus R Mehta
Date and Time: Thursday, May 24, 2018, 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Eastern time
Sponsor: Section on Medical Devices and Diagnostics

Registration Deadline: Tuesday, May 22, at 12:00 p.m. Eastern time

Clinical trials with adaptive sample size re-assessment, based on an analysis of the unblinded interim results have gained in popularity due to uncertainty regarding the value of δ at which to power the trial at the start of the study. In implementing such designs one must address three statistical issues:

  • How to control the type-1 error
  • How to construct an optimal decision rule for increasing the sample size
  • How to estimate δ at the end of the study

In this presentation I will address all three issues.
