Statistical Thinking for Non-Statisticians in Drug Regulation
by Richard Kay

Statistical Thinking for Non-Statisticians in Drug Regulation focuses on the pharmaceutical non-statistician working within a very strict regulatory environment.

It presents the concepts and statistical thinking behind medical studies with a direct connection to the regulatory environment so that readers can be clear where the statistical methodology fits in with industry requirements.

Pharmaceutical-related examples are used throughout to set the information in context. As a result, this book provides a detailed overview of the statistical aspects of the design, conduct, analysis and presentation of data from clinical trials within drug regulation.

Statistical Thinking for Non-Statisticians in Drug Regulation:

  • Assists pharmaceutical personnel in communicating effectively with statisticians using statistical language
  • Improves the ability to read and understand statistical methodology in papers and reports and to critically appraise that methodology
  • Helps to understand the statistical aspects of the regulatory framework better quoting extensively from regulatory guidelines issued by the EMEA (European
  • Medicines Evaluation Agency), ICH (International Committee on Harmonization and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration)
