Randomization is commonly used in evidence-based clinical trials, in particular in order to statistically minimise individual influences on the outcome of the study.
secuTrial® offers seven algorithms for randomization.
- Extended stratified block without list (secuTrial)
- Range minimization
- Variance minimization
- Static unstratified single block randomization
- Static unstratified multi block randomization
- Static stratified block randomization
- Simple randomization
These algorithms work with multiple randomization groups (= treatment arms).
The randomization can be unblinded, single-blind, double-blind or triple-blind. During randomization various stratification factors can be taken into account based on patient characteristics, either within a centre or a project.
The randomization can be done also with an external software, the so created lists can then be uploaded in secuTrial®.
