hATG+CsA vs hATG+CsA+Eltrombopag for SAA


Brief description of study

The null hypothesis of no difference in CR% at 3 months between the arms will be tested against the alternative of a difference in CR% at an alpha level of .05 by assessing the odds ratio for arm yielded by this model.

Detailed Study Description

This is a superiority trial aiming to increase the 3 month complete response rate. The sample size is calculated on the hypothesis that the experimental treatment will increase the 3 months response rate up to 21% (by 3 folds, based on the 7% reported in Scheinberg et al [17]). Under these assumptions, the sample size to reject the null hypothesis is n=96 patients for each treatment arm, increased by 4% for possibly not evaluable patients (total number of 200 patients, 100 each treatment arm). Statistical design for sample size calculation: increase from 7% (control arm) to 21% (investigational arm) in 3 month complete response rate (two-sided binomial test); alpha-error 0.05; power 0.8.
