Hi All,

I have some questions on Potvin's designs:;-)

1) is it correct that GMR and CV are required for sample size calculation for 2nd stage in all Potvin's designs?

2) Why Method C is considered "better" for sponsors than Method B?

The 1st question arised because Potvin's article dated 2007 says that only CV is needed for A and B while Method C uses both GMR and CV.

But on the other hand there are also opinions that all methods require GMR and CV.
