CTU Bern (Clinical Trials Unit)

The primary endpoint analyses of the BIOSTEMI trial were recently published in the Lancet

It used a Bayesian analysis to combine data from a previous trial (BIOSCIENCE, STEMI subgroup) with the data newly acquired. Two stents were compared, an ultra-thin strut drug eluting stent vs a thin strut drug eluting stent, randomisation and data acquisition were done in the Webspirit system (2mt Ulm). CTU Bern was involved in planning of the trial, data quality checks and statistical analyses. For further reading and the commentary, see Lancet: paper comment
