I have an assignment due tomorrow in which I have to state whether three pending trials will read out positively or negatively.
The pre-clinical data is statistically significant against placebo and I have laid it out but that is not compelling enough.
I want to make something of the fact that now the sample size in placebo controlled crossover trials will be reduced from 500 to say 100 or 30 and may be viewed with skepticism.
How do I develop this thesis?
