NAME

Clinical trial design

DESCRIPTION

Clinical trial design is a key aspect of the successful conduct of clinical trials. It involves deciding parameters such as the number of patients, the length of the trial, the comparator arm (in the case of randomized controlled trials) using information on current treatments, the anticipated effect of the therapeutic intervention being studied and applying biostatistics methods.

JSON-LD is the canonical representation for SciGraph data.

TIP: You can open this SciGraph record using an external JSON-LD service: JSON-LD Playground Google SDTT
