Bayesian Uncertainty Directed Trial Designs

The asymptotic limit of the patient allocation proportion to treatments is discussed, and the finite-sample operating characteristics of BUD designs are illustrated through examples, including multi-arm trials, biomarker-stratified trials, and trials with multiple co-primary endpoints.

Bayesian Statistics and the Efficiency and Ethics of Clinical Trials

An important aspect of the approach I advocate is modeling the relationship between a trial's primary endpoint and early indications of patient performance-auxiliary endpoints.

Bayesian uncertainty‐directed dose finding designs

Bayesian uncertainty‐directed (BUD) designs for phase I–II dose finding trials are introduced and the simulation scenarios used in the evaluation of BUD designs are motivated by a stereotactic body radiation therapy study in lung cancer at the authors' institution.

A comparison of Bayesian adaptive randomization and multi‐stage designs for multi‐arm clinical trials

When several experimental treatments are available for testing, multi‐arm trials provide gains in efficiency over separate trials. Including interim analyses allows the investigator to effectively

Bayesian Adaptive Methods for Clinical Trials

Statistical Approaches for Clinical Trials Introduction Comparisons between Bayesian and frequentist approaches Adaptivity in clinical trials Features and use of the Bayesian adaptive approach Basics

Bayesian response‐adaptive designs for basket trials

This work develops a general class of response‐adaptive Bayesian designs using hierarchical models, and provides open source software to implement them, and discusses the application of the adaptive scheme to two distinct research goals.

A Bayesian Decision-Theoretic Dose-Finding Trial

The use of a successful combination of Bayesian inference and decision theory in a clinical trial design that demonstrates how Bayesian posterior inference and decisions-theoretic approaches combine to provide a coherent solution in a complex application.

The Bayesian basket design offers an efficient way to generate information on both experimental therapeutics and the predictive capacity of putative biomarkers and is flexible enough to accommodate varying levels of pretrial biomarker confidence within the same platform structure.

Approximate Dynamic Programming and Its Applications to the Design of Phase I Cancer Trials

The resulting design is a convex combination of a "treatment" design and a "learning" design, thus directly address- ing the treatment versus experimentation dilemma inherent in Phase I trials and providing a simple and intuitive design for clinical use.

Adaptive Bayesian Designs for Dose-Ranging Drug Trials

This case study describes the designs of an innovative class of designs, addresses difficulties in implementing them in actual clinical trials, and relay the experience with using them.
