Adaptive Seamless Design For Phase 2/3 Studies: Basic Concepts & Considerations4/24/2018
An adaptive design is a design that allows for modifications to the processes and statistical procedures of a clinical trial, usually at set intervals established in the trial protocol. Adaptive designs are useful for increasing efficiency and lowering costs associated with clinical research. Studies incorporating adaptive design techniques can be useful in redirecting subject allocation to concentrate on the most promising treatments or in stopping a trial early for futility. The temporal and monetary savings resulting from adaptive designs make them of great value in drug and medical device development.
