Free and open source software

Software tools

Mediana Inc has been actively involved in the development of free and open source software tools for biopharmaceutical applications:

  • Mediana package (R package for general simulation-based power/sample size calculations).
  • Mediana Designer (free Windows-based software tool for traditional and simulation-based power/sample size calculations in fixed-sample and group-sequential trials).

These R- and Windows-based software tools take advantage of recent advances in clinical trial simulations and have been used by numerous trial sponsors to develop efficient approaches to designing, conducting and analyzing trials, especially late-stage trials that utilize complex designs and analysis strategies.

For more information on these free software packages, see the Clinical Trial Simulation section on the Biopharmnet web site.
