The Design and Analysis of Multisite Effectiveness Trials: A Decade of Progress in the National Drug Abuse Clinical Trials Network [editorial].

American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse 2011;37(5):269-272. [doi: 10.3109/00952990.2011.604109]

Edward V. Nunes, MD (New York State Psychiatric Institute, GNY Node).

This Special Issue brings together articles that reflect 12 years of experience in the National Institute on Drug Abuse's (NIDA) National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN) with methodological and statistical issues that arise in the design and conduct of controlled, multisite, community-based effectiveness trials. To date, the CTN has randomized over 13,000 patients into 27 completed trials, with more trials currently ongoing, providing a wealth of experience in design, implementation, and analysis of effectiveness trials. This article provides an introduction to the articles included in the special issue as well as a general overview of the last ten years of the CTN. (Article (Peer-Reviewed), PDF, English, 2011)
