| Case_Presentation || A statistician serves on two independent Data and Safety Monitoring Boards (DSMB's) for similar treatments of the same disease, and received the respective closed reports. The data in Trial A's closed report has relevance for Trial B's DSMB recommendation to stop, alter, or continue the trial. Is it ethical to consider Trial A's closed information in your recommendation for Trial B? Are there situations where it would be ethical to use closed report information from one trial in your DSMB deliberations for a different trial? |
