getAnalysisResults {rpact}  R Documentation 
Calculates and returns the analysis results for the specified design and data.
getAnalysisResults( design, dataInput, ..., directionUpper = TRUE, thetaH0 = NA_real_, nPlanned = NA_real_, allocationRatioPlanned = 1, stage = NA_integer_ )
design 
The trial design. 
dataInput 
The summary data used for calculating the test results.
This is either an element of 
... 
Further arguments to be passed to methods (cf. separate functions in "See Also" below), e.g.,

directionUpper 
Specifies the direction of the alternative,
only applicable for onesided testing; default is 
thetaH0 
The null hypothesis value,
default is
For testing a rate in one sample, a value 
nPlanned 
The additional (i.e., "new" and not cumulative) sample size planned for each of the subsequent stages. The argument must be a vector with length equal to the number of remaining stages and contain the combined sample size from both treatment groups if two groups are considered. For survival outcomes, it should contain the planned number of additional events. For multiarm designs, it is the percomparison (combined) sample size. 
allocationRatioPlanned 
The planned allocation ratio 
stage 
The stage number (optional). Default: total number of existing stages in the data input. 
Given a design and a dataset, at given stage the function calculates the test results (effect sizes, stagewise test statistics and pvalues, overall pvalues and test statistics, conditional rejection probability (CRP), conditional power, Repeated Confidence Intervals (RCIs), repeated overall pvalues, and final stage pvalues, median unbiased effect estimates, and final confidence intervals.
For designs with more than two treatments arms (multiarm designs) a closed combination test is performed. That is, additionally the statistics to be used in a closed testing procedure are provided.
The conditional power is calculated only if effect size and sample size is specified. Median unbiased effect estimates and confidence intervals are calculated if a group sequential design or an inverse normal combination test design was chosen, i.e., it is not applicable for Fisher's pvalue combination test design. For the inverse normal combination test design with more than two stages, a warning informs that the validity of the confidence interval is theoretically shown only if no sample size change was performed.
A final stage pvalue for Fisher's combination test is calculated only if a twostage design was chosen. For Fisher's combination test, the conditional power for more than one remaining stages is estimated via simulation.
Final stage pvalues, median unbiased effect estimates, and final confidence intervals are not calculated for multiarm designs.
Returns an AnalysisResults
object.
The following generics (R generic functions) are available for this result object:
names
to obtain the field names,
print
to print the object,
summary
to display a summary of the object,
plot
to plot the object,
as.data.frame
to coerce the object to a data.frame
,
Click on the link of a generic in the list above to go directly to the help documentation of
the rpact
specific implementation of the generic.
Note that you can use the R function methods
to get all the methods of a generic and
to identify the object specific name of it, e.g.,
use methods("plot")
to get all the methods for the plot
generic.
There you can find, e.g., plot.AnalysisResults
and
obtain the specific help documentation linked above by typing ?plot.AnalysisResults
.
mnormt
If intersectionTest = "Dunnett"
or the design is a conditional Dunnett design and
the dataset is a multiarm dataset,
rpact
uses the R package mnormt
to calculate the analysis results.
