Efficient Simulation-Based Power and Sample Size Calculations for a Broad Class of Late-Stage Clinical Trials

This package supports efficient simulation-based power and sample size calculations for a broad class of late-stage clinical trials, including Phase II trials, seamless Phase II/III trials and Phase III trials:

  • Adaptive trials with data-driven sample size or event count re-estimation (ADSSMod function).
  • Adaptive trials with data-driven treatment selection (ADTreatSel function).
  • Adaptive trials with data-driven population selection (ADPopSel function).
  • Optimal selection of a futility stopping rule (FutRule function).
  • Blinded event prediction in event-driven trials (EventPred function).
  • Adaptive trials with response-adaptive randomization (ADRand function) [experimental module].
  • Traditional trials with multiple objectives (MultAdj function) [experimental module].
  • Cluster-randomized trials (ClustRand function) [experimental module].

For more information on this package, visit Mediana's web site. The latest stable version of the package can be downloaded from CRAN.

The technical manuals with a detailed description of the statistical methodology implemented in each module can be found on Mediana's web site:

Additional information and multiple case studies can be found in the online manual (English) or online manual (French).

An online training course on adaptive designs and clinical trial simulation is available on Mediana's YouTube channel.
