Both target audiences will find this book a useful introduction to the central role of the discipline of Statistics in the clinical development of pharmaceutical drugs that improve the human condition. Important concepts are reinforced with review questions at the end of chapters.

  • why, and how, data are collected in clinical studies (to investigate a specific question, using appropriate study design and research methodology)
  • how these data are summarized and analyzed (descriptive statistics, hypothesis testing and inferential statistics, statistical significance)
  • what the results mean in the context of the clinical research question (interpretation, estimation, and clinical significance)
  • how the results are communicated to regulatory agencies and to the scientific and medical communities.
