When relevant covariate information can only be accumulated after or during the course of treatment (as would be true for most pharmacokinetic assessments), the information can be used to improve the eﬃciency with which the MTD is determined, but cannot form the basis for a tailored dosing regimen. In this case, a global MTD is deﬁned representing the dose recommended for use by all patients in the target population. 5 (see, for example, Babb and Rogatko, 2001). Consequently, we conclude this section with an example illustrating the speciﬁcation of the prior distribution in the PNU trial.
10 or less. 3. BAYESIAN STOPPING RULE FOR SAFETY The trial described in Section 2 was monitored by a data and safety monitoring board, which expressed a concern that engraftment by day 42 was not suﬃcient to assure the longer term safety of the patients who underwent this procedure. They requested a stopping rule for a longer term endpoint to monitor safety. We chose 100 day transplant-related mortality (TRM) as the safety endpoint. TRM encompasses multiple causes of death and so serves as a suitable safety endpoint.
