Methodik klinischer Studien: Methodische Grundlagen der by Martin Schumacher, Gabriele Schulgen

By Martin Schumacher, Gabriele Schulgen

Dieses Buch bietet eine praxisorientierte Einführung in die methodischen Grundlagen klinischer Studien in der wissenschaftlichen Forschung und der pharmazeutischen Industrie. Die grundlegenden Prinzipien der Planung und Durchführung klinischer Studien sowie die wichtigsten statistischen Verfahren für deren Auswertung werden in verständlicher Weise dargestellt und erklärt. Neben der Methodik für Therapiestudien behandeln die Autoren auch die speziellen Verfahren in Diagnose- und Prognosestudien.

Anhand von Beispielen konkreter Studien vorwiegend aus ihrem eigenen Arbeitsumfeld illustrieren die Autoren anschaulich die Prinzipien und Methoden und zeigen exemplarisch die in der Praxis auftretenden Probleme. Darüber hinaus diskutieren sie historische Entwicklungen sowie die overseas geltenden criteria für die Qualität klinischer Studien.

Das Buch richtet sich an alle, die klinische Studien planen, durchführen und statistisch auswerten oder die Ergebnisse von klinischen Studien interpretieren und bewerten. In diese dritte, überarbeitete Auflage wurden aktuelle Hinweise auf neue Entwicklungen aufgenommen.

Biostatistiques pour le clinicien by Michel Huguier

By Michel Huguier

Parce que les progrès de los angeles médecine sont le fruit d’innovations, l’évaluation de ces suggestions est nécessaire. Seule los angeles connaissance des méthodes d’évaluation qui passe par une examine statistique, permet de mener des travaux de recherche, notamment clinique, avec une rigueur suffisante. los angeles compréhension des thoughts sur lesquels s’appuient ces méthodes est plus importante que los angeles connaissance des démonstrations mathématiques. Pour des lecteurs, elle permet de se faire une opinion critique sur les guides ou vis-� -vis des sollicitations dont ils font l’objet. Pour les étudiants en médecine, l’apprentissage de l. a. lecture critique d’articles est un des objectifs de l’examen classant nationwide en fin du deuxième cycle.

Or, du fait de leur abord très mathématique, los angeles plupart des livres de biostatistiques ne sont pas accessibles � un public de non-spécialistes. En abordant les biostatistiques de façon plus didactique, cet ouvrage, dont l’originalité est d’avoir été rédigé par un clinicien sous le « contrôle » d’un biostatisticien professionnel, devient obtainable � tous - médecins, biologistes, étudiants, mais aussi vétérinaires et pharmaciens - quelle que soit leur formation initiale.

Ce livre débute par l. a. définition et les mesures des différentes variables. Il se poursuit avec les thoughts qui permettent de comparer les moyens dont dispose le médecin. Les essais randomisés trouvent ici leur position, avec leurs difficultés et leurs biais. Puis, sont abordées les études uni et multifactorielles. Les quatre dernières events concernent plus spécifiquement los angeles démarche diagnostique, le traitement, l'estimation d'un pronostic et l'épidémiologie.

Branching Processes and Neutral Evolution by Ziad Taïb (auth.)

By Ziad Taïb (auth.)

The Galton-Watson branching strategy has its roots within the challenge of extinction of relations names which used to be given an exact formula by way of F. Galton as challenge 4001 within the academic occasions (17, 1873). In 1875, an try to resolve this challenge was once made through H. W. Watson yet because it became out, his end was once mistaken. part a century later, R. A. Fisher made use of the Galton-Watson strategy to figure out the extinction chance of the progeny of a mutant gene. notwithstanding, it was once J. B. S. Haldane who ultimately gave the 1st cartoon of the proper end. J. B. S. Haldane additionally anticipated that mathematical genetics may perhaps a few day become a "respectable department of utilized arithmetic" (quoted in M. Kimura & T. Ohta, Theoretical features of inhabitants Genetics. Princeton, 1971). because the time of Fisher and Haldane, the 2 fields of branching approaches and mathematical genetics have attained a excessive measure of class yet in several instructions. This monograph is a primary try to follow the present country of data bearing on single-type branching procedures to a selected region of mathematical genetics: impartial evolution. The reader is believed to be acquainted with a number of the ideas of likelihood concept, yet no specific wisdom of branching approaches is needed. Following the recommendation of an nameless referee, i've got enlarged my unique model of the advent (Chapter 0) which will make it available to a bigger viewers. G6teborg, Sweden, November 1991.

Applied Meta-Analysis with R by Ding-Geng (Din) Chen, Karl E. Peace

By Ding-Geng (Din) Chen, Karl E. Peace

In biostatistical study and classes, practitioners and scholars usually lack a radical knowing of the way to use statistical ways to synthesize biomedical and scientific trial info. Filling this data hole, Applied Meta-Analysis with R exhibits the way to enforce statistical meta-analysis easy methods to genuine info utilizing R.

Drawing on their vast study and instructing reviews, the authors offer distinctive, step by step reasons of the implementation of meta-analysis equipment utilizing R. every one bankruptcy supplies examples of genuine reports compiled from the literature. After featuring the knowledge and invaluable heritage for figuring out the purposes, a variety of tools for reading meta-data are brought. The authors then increase research code utilizing the best R applications and features. This systematic strategy is helping readers completely comprehend the research equipment and R implementation, allowing them to take advantage of R and the how you can examine their very own meta-data.

Suitable as a graduate-level textual content for a meta-data research path, the publication can be a important reference for practitioners and biostatisticians (even people with very little event in utilizing R) in public wellbeing and fitness, clinical study, governmental companies, and the pharmaceutical industry.

Permutation Statistical Methods: An Integrated Approach by Kenneth J. Berry, Paul W. Mielke Jr., Janis E. Johnston

By Kenneth J. Berry, Paul W. Mielke Jr., Janis E. Johnston

This study monograph presents a synthesis of a couple of statistical checks and measures, which, first and foremost attention, seem disjoint and unrelated. various comparisons of permutation and classical statistical equipment are awarded, and the 2 tools are in comparison through chance values and, the place applicable, measures of impression size.

Permutation statistical equipment, in comparison to classical statistical tools, don't depend upon theoretical distributions, stay away from the standard assumptions of normality and homogeneity of variance, and count basically at the info handy. this article takes a different method of explaining records by means of integrating a wide number of statistical tools, and setting up the rigor of a subject matter that to many could seem to be a nascent box in facts. This subject is new in that it took sleek computing strength to make permutation tools to be had to humans operating within the mainstream of analysis.
