Data MATRIX presented its macro at the annual conference of the ISCB

Data MATRIX presented its macro for data output at the 37th Annual Conference of the International Society for Clinical Biostatistics (ISCB) held from 21 to 25 August, 2016 in Birmingham.

ISCB is one of the industry’s largest communities of clinical research professionals. ISCB conferences cover a wide range of issues related to statistical aspects of adaptive trial designs, big data storage and management, aspects of early and late phase clinical trials in terms of biostatistics, meta-analysis, missing data handling methods, survival rate analysis, and many other issues. Data MATRIX biostatisticians are active ISCB members who took part in ISCB conference in Utrecht as delegates in 2015.

During this year’s conference, Data MATRIX biostatisticians Andrey Myslivets and Artem Dolgun presented a poster paper on a unique macro which they developed in conjunction with the Data MATRIX Biostatistics Department. The macro is intended for fast and easy output of data into statistical tables.

The Data MATRIX paper «Universal SAS® macro for generating Statistical Analysis Report in one click for I-IV phase Clinical Trials» described the new macro which enables to speed up the generation of statistical analysis reports by 5 to 15 times depending on external table structure. The macro is easy to use and allows to customize final output designs.

Along with Data MATRIX, several companies also presented their papers on statistical report output via SAS, which supports the relevance of the issue. The Data MATRIX macro is the most comprehensive and cross functional solution as compared with other similar developments, and the first one available for free.
