Question: Study Design
(Click the link to comment and to vote – voting not working through email, sorry!)
You design a study to compare a new antiviral to treat herpangina to placebo. During the trial, some of the parents stop giving their children the new drug because it tastes bad, and some (but fewer) parents stop giving their children the placebo because they forget to give it. During the analysis, you compare the outcomes based on the patients’ assignment to their original group.
