  • Parallel Designs (e.g., superiority, non-inferiority)
  • Crossover (Bioequivalence, Food Effect)
  • Dose escalation (e.g., 3×3 or 6×6 and MTD designs)
  • Repeated Measures
  • Sequential Designs
  • Study Design
    • Objectives
    • Endpoints
    • Alpha Spending Scheme (e.g., Hochberg, Westlake, Closed Testing)
  • Analyses (e.g., standard, non-standard, modeling, etc.)
  • Sample Size Estimation (EAST, PASS11, nQuery)
