Get Closed Conditional Dunnett Test Results


Calculates and returns the results from the closed conditional Dunnett test.


  stage = stageResults$stage



The results at given stage, obtained from getStageResults().


Ensures that all arguments (starting from the "...") are to be named and that a warning will be displayed if unknown arguments are passed.


The stage number (optional). Default: total number of existing stages in the data input.


For performing the conditional Dunnett test the design must be defined through the function getDesignConditionalDunnett().
See Koenig et al. (2008) and Wassmer & Brannath (2016), chapter 11 for details of the test procedure.


Returns a ClosedCombinationTestResults object. The following generics (R generic functions) are available for this result object:

How to get help for generic functions

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.

# data (treatment arm 4 refers to the reference group):
