Note:Real-life problems are often quite complicated and, for centuries, Mathematics has provided the necessary tools and ideas to formulate these problems mathematically and then help in solving them either exactly or approximately.This book aims to gathe r a collection of papers dealing with several different problems arising from many disciplines and some modern mathematical approaches to handle them. In this respect, the book offers a wide overview on many ofthe current trends in Mathematics as valuable formal techniques in capturing and exploiting the complexity involved in real-world situations. Several researchers, colleagues, friends and students of Professor Mara Luisa Menndezhave contributed to this volume to pay tribute to her and to recognize th e diverse contributions she had made to the fields of Mathematics and Statistics and to the profession in general. She had a sweet and strong personality, andinstilled great values and work ethics in her students through her dedication to teaching and res earch. Even though the academic community lost her prematurely, she would continue to provide inspiration to many students and researchersworldwide through her published work

Title:Nanoethics and Nanotoxicology [electronic resource]

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Nanobiotechnology is a fast developing field of research and application in many domains such as in medicine, pharmacy, cosmetics and agro-industry. The book addresses the lastest fundamental results on nanotoxicology andnanoethics, and the enormous range of potential applications in the fields of medical diagnostics, nanomedicine, and food and water administration. Nanoscale objects have properties leading to specific kinds of behaviour, sometimesexacerbating their chemical reactivity, physical beha viour, or potential to penetrate deeply within living organisms. Hence it is important to ensure the responsible and safe development of nanomaterials and nanotechnologies. Thisfourth volume in the Nanoscience series should make its mark, by presenting th e state of the art in the fields of nanotoxicology and nanoethics. This is the first book to combine both scientific knowledge and ethical and socialrecommendations. It also presents specific policies on nanotechnologies set up by national and internation al authorities. This book is of interest to engineers, researchers, and graduate students

Title:Statistics Applied to Clinical Trials [electronic resource]

Note:In 1948 the first randomized controlled trial was published by the English Medical Research Council in the British Medical Journal. Until then, observations had been uncontrolled. Initially, trials frequently did not confirmhypotheses to be tested. T his phenomenon was attributed to low sensitivity due to small samples, as well as inappropriate hypotheses based on biased prior trials. Additional flaws were recognized and subsequently were better accountedfor: carryover effects due to insufficient wash out from previous treatments, time effects due to external factors and the natural history of the condition under study, bias due to asymmetry between treatment groups, lack of sensitivitydue to a negative correlation between treatment responses, etc. Suc h flaws, mainly of a technical nature, have been largely corrected and led to trials after 1970 being of significantly better quality than before. The past decade hasfocused, in addition to technical aspects, on the need for circumspection in planning and conducting of clinical trials. As a consequence, prior to approval, clinical trial protocols are now routinely scrutinized by differentcircumstantial bodies, including ethics committees, institutional and federal review boards, national and international scientific organizations, and monitoring committees charged with conducting interim analyses. This book not onlyexplains classical statistical analyses of clinical trials, but addresses relatively novel issues, including equivalence testing, interim anal yses, sequential analyses, and meta-analyses, and provides a framework of the beststatistical methods currently available for such purposes. The book is not only useful for investigators involved in the field of clinical trials, but also for all physician s who wish to better understand the data of trials ascurrently published

Title:Data Monitoring in Clinical Trials [electronic resource] : A Case Studies Approach
Author(s): David L DeMets
Curt D Furberg
Lawrence M Friedman
Date:2006
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Randomized clinical trials are the gold standard for establishing many clinical practice guidelines and are central to evidence based medicine. Obtaining the best evidence through clinical trials must be done within the boundariesof rigorous science and ethical principles. One fundamental principle is that trials should not continue longer than necessary to reach their objectives. Therefore, trials must be monitored for recruitment progress, quality of data,adherence to patient care or prevention sta ndards, and early evidence of benefit or harm. Frequently, a group of external experts, independent from the investigators and trial sponsor, is charged with this monitoring responsibility,especially for safety and early benefit. This group is referred to by various names, such as a data monitoring committee or a data and safety monitoring board. This book, through a series of case studies presented by many distinguishedclinical trial experts, illustrates the complexity of this monitoring process. The edi tors provide an overview of the process and a summary of a multitude of the lessons learned from the cases presented. This book should be useful toanyone serving on a data and safety monitoring board, or planning to do so, for colleagues in academia, indu stry and governmental agencies, and for teaching students in biostatistics, epidemiology, clinical trials and medical ethics.No other text has as extensive a collection of cases which provide insight into the many issues, often conflicting, that must be e xamined before recommendations to continue or discontinue a trial can be made. While depth in statisticalmethods is not required, some familiarity with statistical design and analysis issues in clinical trials is helpful. The cases cover trials which were terminated early for convincing evidence of benefit, or for harmful effects. Caseswith complex issues are also included. This series of cases should provide broad background information for potential m
