Principles and Practice of Clinical Research

This timely book on how to conduct, evaluate, and monitor clinical research was written by leading experts in the field. An important strength of the book is that many of the authors are, or have been, associated with the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In fact, the text is based on a course given at the NIH and headed by the book's editor, John I. Gallin. The authors are particularly knowledgeable about NIH guidelines and regulations that govern much of the clinical research conducted in the United States. The book also contains valuable sections on how to obtain funding from the NIH for clinical research and is particularly strong in the area of ethical, regulatory, and legal issues. Given the problems with clinical research protocols that have been sufficiently serious to close down entire universities in recent years, this book clearly fulfills an important function for anyone involved in clinical research. The book is up to date and includes chapters on women and minorities, telemedicine, and animal models of human diseases, each of which is well written and informative. However, one or more separate chapters on the unique issues associated with genetics, genomics, and gene therapy would have been an appropriate and important addition to this otherwise comprehensive book. The concise initial chapters on bioethics, institutional review boards (IRBs), and data and safety monitoring provide important information needed to prepare investigators for conducting clinical research, at least as judged by the questions on several of the examinations that the NIH and my own institution require for certification to conduct clinical research. Chapter 8 presents the instructive story of the development of, and problems with, the antiviral drug fialuridine, which was ultimately found to have mitochondrial toxicity. The story is a voyage through all of the institutional and societal regulators. It is also a personal account told by a scientist who was in the middle of a stressful and at times tragic story. This chapter, like all the others, is focused on educating the reader, rather than pushing a political agenda, an approach in keeping with the spirit of the book and its roots in the NIH course on clinical research. A useful chapter written by two employees of the Food and Drug Administration describes the critical functions of this government agency in the regulation of drugs and biologic products. Although one could criticize the editor for relying so heavily on insiders to write chapters in the book, I think this is actually a strength. There are certainly many controversial issues that cause tensions between clinical researchers and the federal agencies that oversee clinical research, but the point of this book is to provide a road map that investigators can use to navigate the complexities of regulations governing clinical research. Who better to draw this map than the regulators themselves? This book will be accessible to a wide range of readers. Seasoned clinical investigators will find it a useful reference and a valuable teaching tool. Beginning students and others who are involved in clinical research but who may not have had formal training in the field will find that this book provides an excellent introduction to the key issues all clinical investigators must be familiar with. The book contains an enormous amount of useful information, which is clearly presented. For example, the chapters on legal issues are explained in terms that can readily be understood by a physician or a nurse with no legal training. Brief chapters on statistical methods cover the high points that any clinical investigator needs to be comfortable with, including randomization, calculation of the sample size, hypothesis testing, and survival analysis. The discussions of small and large clinical trials are of course generic and limited to addressing the more obvious aspects of designing trials. These chapters are not likely to obviate the need for an experienced, well-trained principal investigator to serve as a mentor for such endeavors. The brief overviews of technology transfer, telemedicine, and animal models of human disease cover topics that are so complex that entire books could be written about them. Somewhat out of place is the chapter on how to prepare scientific images for publication and display. The chapter is too brief to provide sufficiently detailed information for those not already well versed in the use of these techniques and is too superficial to interest anyone who is already producing scientific images on desktop computers. This book is much needed and provides essentially all of the basic information required by investigators involved in clinical research, from both a practical perspective and a regulatory perspective. Although it will not take the place of more in-depth books in any of the many areas it touches on, there is very little information in this well-written and comprehensive book that all clinical investigators should not be familiar with. Given the appropriate increase in attention to regulations governing clinical research, this book will be an important resource for institutional libraries and IRBs. It is an excellent starting point for those embarking on a clinical research project, as well as a valuable reference that experienced investigators will probably want to have readily available. ...

Surgery: Basic Science and Clinical Evidence (Norton Surgery)
ISBN-10: 0387308008 | Springer | 2nd edition | August 26, 2008 | 2442 pages | PDF | 95 MB

This book brings a fresh approach to the already strong group of comprehensive textbooks in general surgery. As its title states, it emphasizes the basic science underlying the practice of surgery and the evidence supporting clinical decisions. The book tells the reader not only how to perform surgery, but why. It is a textbook and not an atlas or history of surgery, but the authors do illustrate operations with clear-cut drawings, and they document important historical landmarks.

Core Clinical Cases guides you to think of the patient as a whole, rather than as a sequence of unconnected symptoms. With its practical approach strongly linked to underlying theory, the series integrates your knowledge with the realities of managing clinical problems, and provides a basis for developing problem-solving skills. The core areas of undergraduate study are covered in a logical sequence of learning activities: each case is followed by a detailed answer, along with a number of OSCE-style questions to help you practise for the exam. Related OSCE counselling style questions and answers also feature at the end of each section. Key concepts and important information are highlighted, and the reader-friendly layout reflects exactly the type of question you will encounter, making the perfect revision aid for all types of case-based examination. This book will be a useful revision aid for undergraduates preparing for the OSCE in Obstetrics & Gynaecology. The clinical cases are written in OSCE format and provide an invaluable opportunity for the reader to link basic understanding of the subject to the clinical setting. The Clinical cases covered will reflect the core curriculum in Obs & Gynae and will mimic the kind of cases students would hope to encounter during their clinical training. 60 clinical cases will be covered with colour photographs and line diagrams used to illustrate the cases. ...

Randomized Clinical Trials: Design, Practice and Reporting

Randomized Clinical Trials: Design, Practice and Reporting by David Machin, Peter Fayers Wiley | 2010 | ISBN: 0471498122 | 374 pages | PDF | 12 MB
Using examples and case studies from industry, academia and research literature, Randomized Clinical Trials provides a detailed overview of the key issues involved in designing, conducting, analysing and reporting randomized clinical trials.? It examines the methodology for conducting Phase III clinical trials, developing the protocols, the practice for capturing, measuring, and analysing the resulting clinical data and their subsequent reporting.
Randomized clinical trials are the principal method for determining the relative efficacy and safety of alternative treatments, interventions or medical devices.? They are conducted by groups comprising one or more of pharmaceutical and allied health-care organisations, academic institutions, and charity supported research groups.? In many cases such trials provide the key evidence necessary for the regulatory approval of a new product for future patient use.? Randomized Clinical Trials provides comprehensive coverage of such trials, ranging from elementary to advanced level. Written by authors with considerable experience of clinical trials, Randomized Clinical Trials is an authoritative guide for clinicians, nurses, data managers and medical statisticians involved in clinical trials research and for health care professionals directly involved in patient care in a clinical trial context.
