In long-term clinical studies, recurrent event data are sometimes collected and used to contrast the efficacies of two different treatments. The event re-occurrence rates can be compared using the popular negative binomial model, which incorporates information related to patient heterogeneity into a data analysis. In practical circumstances, patients usually accrued sequentially, thus enabling the incorporation of adaptive schemes: adjustments of the study roadmap after the assessment of the available patient responses thus far in the trial. In this talk, we focus on two valuable design methodologies for recurrent event data, adaptive in nature, that tremendously benefit both drug developers as well as trial participants. The first is response-adaptive treatment randomization and the second is group sequential design. The response-adaptive treatment allocation mechanism enables more patients to receive the superior treatment by using information gathered from cumulative outcome. For sequential monitoring, it provides a paradigm within which interim analysis can be performed in order to discover if one of the treatments is significantly more effective and hence the trial can be terminated in a much earlier stage.
