Trial By Error: Bruce Levin on “How Not to Conduct a Randomized Clinical Trial”
18 SEPTEMBER 2018
By David Tuller, DrPH

When I first began examining the PACE trial in detail, I turned to clinical trial experts to vet my concerns. One of them was biostatistician Bruce Levin, a professor at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, to whom I was referred by a mutual colleague. After he reviewed the trial, he pronounced it to be a mess—a conclusion that fueled my determination to investigate the matter.

Professor Levin identified many faults in the PACE trial’s design.
