Sample Size and Submission

Lecturer: Dr. Yossi Tal, TechnoSTAT president

Sounds simple, doesn’t it? Well, as you know, it is not. Determining sample size for an FDA pivotal trial depends on numerous factors including:

• Type of product: Therapeutic device, diagnostic device, drug, 510k, PMA, NDA, etc.

• Primary objective: Efficacy, safety, diagnostic performance, etc.

• Trial design: Multiple-arm, single arm, superiority, non-inferiority, single analysis, interim analysis, etc.

• Luck: Good, better, best, etc.
