Description - Data and Safety Monitoring Committees in Clinical Trials, Second Edition by Jay Herson

Praise for the first edition:

"Given the author's years of experience as a statistician and as a founder of the first DMC in pharmaceutical industry trials, I highly recommend this book-not only for experts because of its cogent and organized presentation, but more importantly for young investigators who are seeking information about the logistical and philosophical aspects of a DMC."

-S. T. Ounpraseuth, The American Statistician

In the first edition of this well-regarded book, the author provided a groundbreaking and definitive guide to best practices in pharmaceutical industry data monitoring committees (DMCs). Maintaining all the material from the first edition and adding substantial new material, Data and Safety Monitoring Committees in Clinical Trials, Second Edition is ideal for training professionals to serve on their first DMC as well as for experienced clinical and biostatistical DMC members, sponsor and regulatory agency staff.

It also provides the reader with many new statistical methods, clinical trial designs and clinical terminology that have emerged since the first edition.
