Using existing information in multi-arm multi-stage clinical trials Multi-arm clinical trials compare several active treatments to a common control and have been proposed as an efficient means of making an informed decision about which of several treatments should be evaluated further in a confirmatory study. Additional efficiency is gained by incorporating interim analyses that allow the study to be stopped early - either because of overwhelming evidence of benefit or lack thereof. This project will investigate design and analysis of multi-arm multi-stage clinical trials that incorporate existing information (e.g. from previous studies). A Bayesian framework will be use to integrate this information while frequentist properties of the design will be controlled.
