Although this book focuses on cancer trials, the same issues and concepts are important in any clinical setting. As always, the authors use clear, lucid prose and a multitude of real-world examples to convey the principles of successful trials without the need for a strong statistics or mathematics background. Armed with Clinical Trials in Oncology, Third Edition, clinicians and statisticians can avoid the many hazards that can jeopardize the success of a trial.
Praise for the Previous Editions
"The dedication of the authors to enhancing the quality of clinical trials in oncology is evident from this book. … This book will be useful to students, clinical research nurses and medical statisticians involved in oncology trials. … I also recommend it to libraries and clinical institutions."
—Clinical Trials, 2004
"With over 60 years combined experience, the authors are ideally positioned to discuss the various statistical issues apparent in clinical trials, identifying alternative solutions, providing logical arguments for and against the various solutions. This book is also recommended for statisticians actively involved in the design, conduct, and analysis of clinical trial data (not only cancer clinical trials)."
—Journal of Biopharmaceutical Statistics

—Charles R. Thomas Jr., MD, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, USA
"Succinct and focused…[This book] is clear, cogent, and practical. It is structured so that statisticians can use specific sections as starting point to develop shared understandings with investigators, study coordinators, and data managers…It has been useful to me and my clients, and I look forward to the second edition."
—Marlene Egger, University of Utah, USA
