Abstract: This course is structured into three parts. The first part will give and overview of adaptive design rationales in clinical development and basic theories, to be followed by exploratory adaptive design methods. The second part will introduce rigorous statistical methodologies and the use of such methods for analyzing adequate and well-controlled confirmatory adaptive trials. Overviews on adaptation options that are appropriate for biomarker associated adaptive designs will be given. The third part will present design implementation, trial logistics models, and regulatory guidance on adaptive designs for drugs and biologics development.Both Bayesian and frequentist methods will  be illustrated using typical case examples and sources that are currently available in early and late phase development.

Deadline for registration is May 1, 2012
