Principles and Practice of Multi-site Randomized Controlled Trials in the Phase III Setting

Peter Natale Peduzzi Ph.D.

The focus of this book is to provide a foundation in the principles and practice of multi-site, Randomized Controlled Trials (RCT), primarily in the phase III setting. Although regulatory issues are discussed, the design and conduct of clinical trials for regulatory approval are not covered, nor are early phase clinical trials in the phase I or II setting. Any regulatory issues presented are primarily based on U.S. FDA and International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) guidelines.
