Play-the-winner rule is a process sometimes considered in the clinical trials in which the response to treatment is positive (a success) or negative (a failure). One of two treatments is selected at the random and used on the first patient; after that the same treatment is used on the next patient when the response of the previously treated patient is positive and other treatment whenever the response obtained is negative.
