Good Clinical Trial Simulation Practices

I didn't realize they had gotten this far, and they did so 8 years ago! A group has put together a collection of good clinical trial simulation practices. While I only partly agree with the parsimony principle, I think the guiding principles are in general sound. I'd like to see this effort get wider recognition in the biostatistical community so that clinical trial simulations will get wider use. That can only help bring down drug development costs and promote deeper understanding of the compounds we are testing.
