Many trials end with a whimper. Some end with a bang. A few weeks ago that happened with SPRINT, a trial to lower blood pressure further than ever before. A trilogy of posts:
- Post-SPRINT Trial Headaches looks at what we know so far about that trial
- Stories and issues with trials that have been stopped before: The Mess That Trials Stopped Early Can Leave Behind
- And a primer on stopping trials earlier at Statistically Funny: AGHAST! The Day the Trial Terminator Arrived
Latest cartoons added to Tumblr: Researchers - Don't Become a Statistic!, The Forest Plot Trilogy - A Gripping Thriller Concludes, and on the right side of the angels in Heaven's Department of Epidemiology.
