Sample Size Calculation for Clinical Trials
What is Sample Size Calculation in Clinical Trials?
Sample size calculation is the estimation of the number of patients required to identify a relevant treatment in a clinical trial. The sample size of a clinical study can be calculated by using many different methods and formulas, which requires the specialized knowledge of an experienced biostatistician. Sample size calculation is a fundamental aspect of clinical trial design since it has a direct impact on the robustness of the answer to the main clinical research question.
