    Data Analysis for Clinical Trials




    For a research module, for my postgraduate degree, I need to design a clinical trial research protocol. I am looking at how safe and effective drug X is. Drug X (in three different doses) will be investigated along with a placebo, looking for changes in blood pressure, sugar levels. Which statistical tests can I use to analyse the data? I was thinking about using anova for the drugs against blood pressure and sugar, are there any other tests I can do?

    Bear in mind this is only for a research protocol, so I just need to briefly explain what I will do.

    i abuse that this an open forum:

    wouldnt anova come at the end?
    1 – check Ho against no change, to make the min dosis effective
    2 – get a model of the relationship indep var dosis vs dep var health (for each sugar and blood), it could be linear
    3 – check with chi test (with more samples available better)

    Thanks for the replies, guys!

    I am actually useless at statistics, so after reading a few clinical trials online, to me it looked like this was the most common test, hence suggested it.
