Summary

Pharmaceutical development is an iterative process. The recent publications of regulatory guidelines further entail a lifecycle approach. Blending data from disparate sources, the Bayesian approach provides a flexible framework for pharmaceutical development. Despite its advantages, the uptake of Bayesian methodologies is lagging in the field of pharmaceutical development.

Written specifically for pharmaceutical practitioners, Bayesian Analysis with R for Pharmaceuticals: Concepts, Algorithms, and Case Studies describes a wide range of Bayesian applications to problems throughout pre-clinical, clinical, and chemistry, manufacturing, and control (CMC) development. Authored by two seasoned statisticians in the pharmaceutical industry, the book provides detailed Bayesian solutions to a broad array of pharmaceutical problems.

Features

  • Provides a single source of information on Bayesian statistics for pharmaceutical development
  • Covers a wide spectrum of pre-clinical, clinical, and CMC topics
  • Demonstrates proper Bayesian applications using real-life examples
  • Includes easy-to-follow R code with Bayesian Markov Chain Monte Carlo performed in both JAGS and Stan Bayesian software platforms
  • Offers sufficient background for each problem and detailed description of solutions suitable for practitioners with limited Bayesian knowledge

Harry Yang is Senior Director and Head of Statistical Sciences at MedImmune. He has 24 years of experience across all aspects of drug research and development and extensive global regulatory experiences. He has published six statistical books, 15 book chapters, and over 90 peer-reviewed papers on diverse scientific and statistical subjects, including 15 joint statistical works with Dr. Novick. Dr. Yang is a frequent invited speaker at national and international conferences. He also developed statistical courses and conducted training at the FDA and USP as well as Peking University.

Steven Novick is Director of Statistical Sciences at MedImmune. He has extensively contributed statistical methods to the biopharmaceutical literature. Dr. Novick is a skilled Bayesian computer programmer and is frequently invited to speak at conferences, having developed and taught courses in several areas, including drug-combination analysis and Bayesian methods in clinical areas. He served on IPAC-RS and has chaired several national statistical conferences.
