This review is from: Statistical Methods for Dose-Finding Experiments (Statistics in Practice) (Hardcover)
The book refers more to designs to be used in oncology trials. Since there is already an extensive literature (i.e. journals, books) on how to design phase I oncology trials in a different, more optimal way, I would have liked if this book had addressed more non-oncology phase I trials.
Also, the book contains links to some websites with S-plus/R/Excel programs that address some theoretical topics. It would have been nice if the book attached those programs and describe them.
Stats methods for dose-finding experiments is a nice introductory book on dose-finding. After reading it, you might need another book with multiple case studies in various settings to actually teach you how to design such studies in the practical world.
