Continual reassessment method, Advanced Statistics

Continual reassessment method: An approach which applies Bayesian inference for determining the maximum tolerated dose in a phase I trial. The method starts by assuming a logistic regression model for the dose-toxicity relationship and the prior distribution for the parameters. Once each patient's toxicity result becomes available posterior distribution of the parameters is recomputed and used to estimate probability of the toxicity at each of a series of dose levels.
