Synthetic control arms Audio book
Synthetic control arms (SCA) are virtual trial arms that use historical claims data and observational data to simulate the control arm of a study. When enrollment targets are low and large amounts of data already exist about the performance of a control, then in many cases using quantitative techniques to simulate a control arm of a trial will expedite timelines and serve as a more optimal
use of resources.
Cytel’s new audiobook 'Demystifying synthetic control arms' provides insights on synthetic
controls, suitable conditions for their use, and some common quantitative strategies for trial design and regulatory submission.
