The interAdapt R package is designed to be used by statisticians and clinical investigators to plan randomized trials. It can be used to determine if certain adaptive designs offer tangible benefits compared to standard designs, in the context of investigators' specific trial goals and constraints. Specifically, interAdapt compares the performance of trial designs with adaptive enrollment criteria versus standard (non-adaptive) group sequential trial designs. Performance is compared in terms of…

Adaptive, Group Sequential Designs that Balance the Benefits and Risks of Wider Inclusion Criteria
We propose a new class of adaptive randomized trial designs aimed at gaining the advantages of wider generalizability and faster recruitment, while mitigating the risks of including a population for
Adaptive Enrichment Designs for Stroke Clinical Trials.
Most randomized trials are designed to determine average treatment effects for a target population. This is ideal if the treatment has an identical effect on all participants, but can be problematic
Group sequential designs with prospectively planned rules for subpopulation enrichment
We propose a class of randomized trial designs aimed at gaining the advantages of wider generalizability and faster recruitment while mitigating the risks of including a population for which there is
Methods for High Dimensional Analysis, Multiple Testing, and Visual Exploration
TLDR
It is found that human accuracy in detecting significance was initially poor, but improved with practice, and the proposed method can reduce bootstrap standard error computation times from approximately 4 days to 47 minutes.

A multiple testing procedure for clinical trials.
TLDR
The overall size of the procedure is shown to be controlled with virtually the same accuracy as the single sample chi-square test based on N(m1 + m2) observations and the power is found to bevirtually the same.
Preliminary findings of the minimally-invasive surgery plus rtPA for intracerebral hemorrhage evacuation (MISTIE) clinical trial.
TLDR
There is tentative indication that minimally-invasive surgery plus rtPA shows greater clot resolution than traditional medical management for ICH, and preliminary analysis indicates that clot resolution rates are greatly dependent on catheter placement.
Approaches to evaluation of treatment effect in randomized clinical trials with genomic subset
TLDR
The genomic technology brings a possible avenue for developing a genomic biomarker to predict a genomically responsive patient subset that may have a (much) higher likelihood of benefiting from a treatment.
