The Statistics Department at Cardialysis has extensive experience in the analysis of data from clinical trials, especially in advanced statistical methods for interim analysis, final analysis and stopping rules.
The statistical staff are involved in trial design, protocol and Case Report Form development, and the design of data management. During data collection, programmes are prepared for final statistical data analysis to ensure rapid reporting of the trial. The amount and level of statistical analysis varies from trial to trial, depending on the requests of the sponsor and the investigators. The staff at Cardialysis collaborates closely with the sponsors and Steering Committee to perform interim and final statistical analyses. Often the scientific interest continues beyond the initial presentation of the data. Additional analyses can be conducted either by Cardialysis or by individual investigators using the trial database.
Other statistical services include: pooled analyses in which databases from different trials can be combined to conduct additional analyses.
