//April Slee, Axio Research Biostatistician Project Director, published in The Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeons

Seattle, WA – July 16, 2012

April Slee, Axio Research Biostatistician Project Director, was published in the recent issue of The Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeons. The Triiodothyronine Supplementation in Infants and Children Undergoing Cardiopulmonary Bypass (TRICC) study demonstrated a shortened time to extubation in children younger than 5 months old undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass for congenital heart surgery with triiodothyronine supplementation. Cardiopulmonary bypass precipitates a systemic inflammatory response that affects recovery, and triiodothyronine is related to cytokine mediators of inflammation. The authors sought to investigate the preoperative cytokine levels by age and relationship to the triiodothyronine levels and to examine the effect of the cytokine levels on the time to extubation.

An abstract of Triiodothyronine supplementation and cytokines during cardiopulmonary bypass in infants and children., Priest JR, Slee A, Olson AK, Ledee D, Morrish F, Portman MA. J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg. 2012 Jun 26, is available online.

//Dr. Li Zhou, Axio Research Biostatistician Project Director, presenting at the 2012 Joint Statistical Meetings

Seattle, WA – June 22, 2012

Dr. Li Zhou is presenting A New Tool for Flagging Adverse Events of Potential Clinical Interest on Wednesday, August 1, 2012 beginning at 10:30 AM during the Joint Statistical Meetings in San Diego, CA. Dr. Zhou will be discussing about how dictionary-coded adverse events (AEs) are usually tabulated by treatment arm and perused visually for treatment differences in clinical trials. To speed this process, p-values are sometimes reported for the comparisons with flags for values below a certain threshold (e.g. 0.05). The graphical representation of this statistic is also useful and presented.

//David Kerr, Axio Research Biostatistician Project Director, presenting at the 2012 Joint Statistical Meetings

Seattle, WA – June 22, 2012

David Kerr is presenting Creating a Better, Shorter DMC Report: A Stack of Needles, Not a Needle in a Haystack on Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at 10:30 AM to 12:20 PM.

David and his Axio colleagues share their insights into what distinguishes an effective DMC report from an ineffective one. DMC members often have a limited time to review the report prior to the meeting and correspondingly, the tables, listings, and figures (TLFs) should be designed, in a brief a manner as possible, to focus on key safety or efficacy signals. David will present our suggested Table of Contents for a 100-page DMC Report with examples of the TLFs that we think give the DMC the essential information for their review, without unnecessary reports that would distract from the DMC's primary responsibilities.
