Methods for the statistical analysis of binary data in split-mouth designs with baseline measurements.


:Many split-mouth trials are characterized by the pairing of site-specific outcome and baseline data within each segment of a subject's mouth. However when the response variable of interest is binary, methods of statistical analysis for this design are not well developed. In this paper we present several analytic approaches that may be taken to the resulting data, showing how the efficiency of statistical inferences can be improved by appropriately incorporating the baseline information. The advantages and disadvantages of the different approaches are discussed in the context of an example from the published literature. The results from a limited simulation study are also presented.

  • Accounting for competing risks in randomized controlled trials: a review and recommendations for improvement.

    abstract::In studies with survival or time-to-event outcomes, a competing risk is an event whose occurrence precludes the occurrence of the primary event of interest. Specialized statistical methods must be used to analyze survival data in the presence of competing risks. We conducted a review of randomized controlled trials wi...
