Other Talks in the Series: Adaptive Clinical Trial Design

Hello, my name is Mark Conaway. I'm a professor in the Division of Translational Research and Applied Statistics in the Department of Public Health Sciences at the University of Virginia. This talk is on patient heterogeneity in dose-finding trials. Specifically, in this part, I'll talk about designing trials in two groups of patients.

The outline of my talk is as follows: first, I'll review traditional one-group dose-finding designs, and it's useful for the material in this lecture to have viewed Professor Ivanova's talks in this series on adaptive designs for phase one trials, parts one and two. Those lectures provide an excellent background for the material in the two group dose-finding lecture. So, once I've reviewed traditional dose-finding designs, I'll talk about generalizing that to dose-finding trials in two groups of patients, starting with a motivating example. Then, I'll present a couple of classes of methods. One class of methods for designing these trials is based on adding parameters to mathematical or parametric models, which includes the two-sample CRM and something called the Shift model. The other class of methods relies on a branch of statistics known as order restricted inference, and I'll talk about that branch of statistics in general and specifically how it applies to dose-finding in two groups.
