Clinical trials principles dictate that complete ascertainment of the primary endpoint gives the optimal chance of proving the objective. In the IMPROVE IT Trial, the primary endpoint is a composite of CV death, MI, UA, Stroke, and Revasc. If the subject withdraws from the trial and all visits, what happens in the ITT analysis?

  • The subject is removed from the database and replaced with another subject who completed the entire trial.

  • The subject is only analyzed in the safety analyses.

  • The subject is analyzed up to the time of study withdrawal.

  • The subject’s data present at the time of study withdrawal is used for the remaining months of the trial in the analysis.


How should subjects be routinely managed to prevent study withdrawal

10 With You This Morning. You Will Need It During This Session

How should subjects be routinely managed to prevent study withdrawal?

  • Schedule appointment and send reminder to the subject within 7 days.

  • Schedule appointment at the end of the follow-up window to maximize the use of the study drug in the bottles (avoid waste).

  • Schedule appointment and notify subject of date and time within 3 weeks of appointment.

  • Maintain close contact with subject in between visits, schedule appointment when convenient for subject (be flexible), call to remind.
