Interim Analyses: Rules or Guidelines: A guide from and for the perplexed
This talk uses examples (two from PHRI studies) to address both problems:
- Crossing a boundary that allows a formal declaration of efficacy but not wanting to stop and;
- Not crossing a boundary but feeling the data are so strong that continuing is unscientific.
In these situations, the DSMB faces a perplexing question: is the defined statistical boundary a rule or a guideline?
