Missing data in Clinical Trials

16/09/2024 - 10:00 - 12:00

Course Topics:

  • Background

  • Primary analysis and sensitivity analyses to address missing data (imputation methods)

  • Use of data collected after discontinuation of assigned treatment

  • ITT, and use of data from subjects with only baseline measurements


Background on Missing Data:

  • Has become a focus area for regulatory authorities (FDA, EMA)

  • FDA initiated and supported a report from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) on missing data (published in 2010)

  • Basic principle for clinical trials: randomize to achieve comparable groups

  • Drop-outs may lead to non-comparable groups

  • Concern: those who drop out are different from those who don’t

  • Difficult to provide general solutions

  • Differences between therapeutic areas

Key Advantages of Understanding Missing Data:

Improved Regulatory Compliance: Ensures adherence to FDA and EMA guidelines, reducing the risk of regulatory issues.

Enhanced Data Integrity: Mitigates the impact of drop-outs, leading to more reliable and comparable results.

Informed Decision-Making: Provides robust methodologies for handling missing data, aiding in accurate interpretation of clinical trial outcomes.
