Design and Analysis of Cross-Over Trials, Third Edition by Byron Jones, Michael G. Kenward

By Byron Jones, Michael G. Kenward

The first variation of Design and research of Cross-Over Trials quick turned the traditional reference at the topic and has remained so for greater than 12 years. In that point, besides the fact that, using cross-over trials has grown swiftly, quite within the pharmaceutical enviornment, and researchers have made a few advances in either the speculation and strategies acceptable to those trials.

Completely revised and up to date, the long-awaited moment variation of this vintage textual content keeps its predecessor's cautious stability of concept and perform whereas incorporating new ways, extra info units, and a broader scope. improvements within the moment variation include:

  • A new bankruptcy on bioequivalence
  • Recently constructed equipment for studying longitudinal non-stop and express data
  • Real-world examples utilizing the SAS system
  • A entire catalog of designs, datasets, and SAS courses to be had on a significant other website at

The authors' exposition provides a transparent, unified account of the layout and research of cross-over trials from a statistical point of view in addition to their methodological underpinnings. With SAS courses and a radical therapy of layout concerns, Design and research of Cross-Over Trials, moment version sets a brand new average for texts during this sector and definitely might be of direct sensible price for years to come.

Example text

Finally, simple testing methods for binary data, based on contingency tables, are described. 2. These are data from a single-center, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of an inhaled drug (A) given twice daily via an inhaler in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Patients who satisfied the initial entry criteria entered a two-week run-in period. Clinic Visit 1 is used to denote the start of this period. After 13 days they returned to the clinic for a histamine challenge test (Clinic Visit 2).

Higher mean PEFR) of treatment A. 4: Group-by-periods plot for PEFR data. Having looked at the PEFR values from individual patients, we now plot a graph that compares the average values over each group for each period. We refer to this as the groups-by-periods plot. We plot the four group-by-period means y¯11. , y¯12. , y¯21. y¯22. against their corresponding Period labels and join them up. , as 1A, 1B, 2B and 2A, respectively. It is also convenient to join 1A with 2A and 2B with 1B. 4. 04. This is suggestive of a treatment-by-period interaction.

20 y¯22. 2. 52 Mean y¯1.. 52 y¯2.. 08 y¯... 2 Plotting the data As with the analysis of any set of data, it is always good practice to begin by drawing and inspecting graphs. A “feel” for the data can then be obtained and any outstanding features identified. We begin by plotting for each patient, within each group, the mean PEFR in Period 2 vs the mean PEFR in Period 1. 1. We have also added the line with slope 1 and intercept 0. 1: Period 2 vs Period 1 plots. 2: Period 2 vs Period 1 plot with centroids.
