They will participate in literally all phases of the study.

Again, we still need to define what we mean by “effective” and to list some if not all of the side effects we hope to diminish or eliminate. PRIMARY END POINTS Our next task is to determine the primary end points that will be used to assess efficacy. Here are a few guidelines: • • • Objective criteria are always preferable to subjective. True end points such as death or incidence of strokes should be employed rather than surrogate response variables such as tumor size or blood pressure. The latter is only appropriate (though not always avoidable) during the early stages of clinical investigation when trials are of short duration.

How likely are these patients to comply? Keep the experimental design simple (see Chapter 6). Keep the data collected to a minimum. Pretest all questionnaires to detect ambiguities. Use computer-assisted data entry to catch and correct data entry errors as they are made (see Chapter 10). Ensure the integrity and security of the stored data (see Chapter 11). Prepare a highly detailed procedures manual for the investigators and investigational laboratories to ensure uniformity in treatment and in measurement.
