Book covers automation in adaptive trials

Clinical Trials Handbook is a guide to adaptive clinical trial best practices. Topics within the 1248-page book include trail automation as well as adaptive trial strategies.

Chapters on automation, written by industry practitioners, cover drug development modeling and simulation, data management processes, and statistical methods for trial analysis. The book also outlines tactics for eliminating the inefficiencies resulting from database lock and query management, among the "largest and most common sources of inefficiency in clinical research," the publisher says.

The $195 book is edited by Shayne Cox Gad of Gad Consulting. It combines contributions from interdisciplinary experts, and is available through Wiley. Contributor Michael Rosenberg, CEO at Health Decisions, presents an instructional guide to best practices. Health Decisions is giving away copies of the book through a weekly drawing through September 4.
