  • Simulations – Providing study simulations to improve the understanding of how unknown factors may impact on the clinical trial results – endpoint variability, recruitment and drop out, treatment effects, and so on.
  • Protocol – Statistical support in the development of the clinical trial protocol (and amendments) with consideration to the recent ICH E9 addendum around estimands.
  • Randomization – Producing randomization lists and advising on the most appropriate randomization method for a particular study.

Midstream activities

Analysis and reporting

  • Statistical Analysis Plans – Developing and/or reviewing clear and detailed SAPs and supporting mock output shells, in accordance with ICH E9, for clinical study reports, interims and DMCs.
  • Statistical Analysis Expertise – Our statisticians have experience across most common and advanced statistical methodologies. Of particular note:
    • MMRM – Extensive design experience of fixed and mixed effects models across phases and indications. Experience in handling non-convergence of models and assessing the best choice of model options.
    • Multiple Imputation (incl. Pattern Mixture Models) – Experience of various types of missing data models, including hot deck imputation and tipping point methods.
    • Multiple Testing Strategies – Knowledge in applying hierarchical testing due to multiplicity. In-house statistical expertise in assessing strategies to control type I errors in adaptive designs and standard trials, along with experience of closed testing procedures to illustrate type I error control.
    • Multiple Failure Time Models – Application of Poisson, zero-inflated Poisson and negative binomial event models.
  • PK/PD analysis – Modeling ling the relationship between exposure and response using non-linear models and non-linear mixed effect modeling.
  • Clinical study reports (CSR) – Supporting the development of the clinical study report to ensure the statistical accuracy of the conclusions drawn from your study.

Post reporting / Submission activities

  • Integrated summaries of safety & efficacy (ISS/ISE) – Guiding and assisting in the integration of safety and efficacy data across multiple studies prior to regulatory approval.
  • Publication planning – we provide support throughout the publication process, from the concept, identification and implementation of appropriate analyzes, right through to the interpretation of the results.
