Product Description

Synopsis

This book is a friendly jargon buster, which aims to demystify clinical trials. It is divided into five sections: fundamentals of trial design, alternative trial designs, basics of statistical analysis, special trial issues in data analysis, and reporting of trials. Using simple language the book explains with illustrations of numerous trial examples, the conceptual and methodological issues that occur at all stages of clinical trial covering trial design, conduct, analysis and reporting. The book is an educational and approachable reference in a difficult area of medicine where clinicians often feel uncertain and this material helps them review, appraise and publish trials and clinical evidence. The audience for the book includes physicians, statisticians, pharmacists, medical students, clinical researchers, medical writers, data managers, study co-ordinators, pharmaceutical sales representatives, and financial (medical) analysts.

From the Author

The book was edited by Dr Duolao Wang, a lecturer from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine's Medical Statistics Unit, and Dr Ameet Bakhai, a Cardiologist based at Barnet General and Royal Free Hospitals, in London.
The book is aimed at physicians, statisticians, pharmacists, medical students, clinical researchers, medical writers, data managers, study co-ordinators, pharmaceutical sales representatives, and financial (medical) analysts. It aims to equip readers with an understanding of the basics of clinical trials as well as the critical insight into how to review, publish and evaluate clinical trial evidence.

Clinical trials form the backbone of evidence-based medicine, and appreciating clinical trial methods allows readers to critique, design and report clinical trials. The book is a jargon-busting guide characterised by short, easy-to-read chapters with trial examples, serving an essential reading for anyone involved in planning, conducting, analysing and reporting clinical research.

Within it's first month the book has sold over 10,000 copies. It is currently being reviewed as text for an MSc programme at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and is being reviewed as educational material by medical journals, senior clinicans and investment bankers.

This book is an excellent introduction to clinical trials. The chapters are brief, clearly explain the fundamentals and give some real examples. The book is easy to read, I would recommend it to people who are simply interested in this field and have no background in medicine, statistics or clinical trials. On the other hand it contains the basics, so do not expect to find details on very specific issues.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Dr Kostas Zacharias on 8 April 2006
Having just embarked on the great adventure of medical research myself, I found this book an extremely helpful companion. The authors present a concise and well-structured step by step approach to clinical trials using plenty of examples from recent well-known trials. Thoroughly recommended to answer any questions on clinal trials you were afraid to ask.

Overall very thorough but can be a bit technical on the stats which could do to be explained to the novice
