Trial Disruptions

Trial disruption during COVID-19 can take countless forms, from patient retention and missing data challenges, to the need to re-examine endpoint due to new comorbidities or unexpected difficulties with observation. Given this range of potential difficulties, Cytel statisticians and data scientists are prepared to work with you to identify all potential complications, of your trial, and provide a range of options.

Cytel provides: 

  • Updated Statistical Analysis Plans
  • Solutions to Sparse or Missing Data
  • Examining Endpoint Selection
  • Ensuring Proper Documentation
  • Coordinating DMCs and Unplanned Interim Looks

Quickly and Confidently Address COVID-19 Disruptions

You had a strong plan, but the COVID-19 outbreak is disrupting trials globally.  Get your enrollment forecast and data analysis plan back on track with EnForeSys and StatXact.

  • Confidently conquer enrollment uncertainty: EnForeSys is a simulation tool that simplifies complex modeling, accounts for uncertainty and seasonality, and extracts insights from your prior data so you can more accurately set expectations around your recruitment timelines.
  • Accurately analyze sparse data: When data is missing, asymptotic results given by traditional methods may not be valid. StatXact uses exact methodologies to accurately analyze sparse data. 
  • Adapt stratification plans: StatXact enables the design and analysis of data with stratification if data from only certain centers, geographies, or groups are available.
