**Sources of Multiplicity**

Multiple variables (endpoints) Multiple timepoints Subgroup analysis Multiple comparisons Multiple tests of the same hypothesis Variable and Model selection Interim analysis Hidden Multiplicity: File Drawers, Outliers

6
**The Problem: “Significant” results may fail to replicate.**

Documented cases: Ioannidis (JAMA 2005) Contradicted and Initially Stronger Effects in Highly Cited Clinical Research John P. A. Ioannidis, MD JAMA. 2005;294:

7
**An Example Phase III clinical trial Three arms – Placebo, AC, Drug**

Endpoints: Signs and symptoms Measured at weekly visits Baseline covariates Phase III – issue is not so severe – especiailly with FDA oversight – But the problem still exists here. The problem is much greater in medical studies where such oversight does not exist.

8
**Example-Continued ‘Features’ displayed at trial conclusion: Trends**

Baseline adjusted comparisons of raw data Baseline adjusted % changes Nonparametric and parametric tests Specific endpoints and combinations of endpoints Particular week results AC and Placebo comparisons Fact: The features that “look the best” are biased.

9
**Example Continued – Feature Selection**

‘Effect Size’ is a feature Effect size = (mean difference)/sd Dimensionless .2=‘small’, .5=‘medium’, .8=‘large’ Estimated effect sizes : F1, F2,…,Fk What if you select (max{F1,F2,…,Fk}) and publish it?

10
**The Scientific Concern**

11
**Feature Selection Model**

Clinical Trials Simulation Real data used Conservative! If you must know more: Fj = mj + ej, j=1,…,20. Error terms or N(0,.22) True effect sizes mj are N(.3,.12) Features Fj are highly correlated.

12
**Key Points: (i) Multiplicity invites Selection (ii) Selection has an EFFECT**

Just like effects due to Treatment Confounding Learning Nonresponse Placebo This is not an easy message to get across to the non-statistically trained Also, practitioners don’t want to hear it: My first consulting experience – alcoholism and genetics One of the reasons that multiplicity is unpopular – it is more defensive – you can negate things very easily with multiplicity considerations – But some bad science needs negating – the “bible codes” is one example. Consideration of Multiplicity is simply GOOD SCIENCE. Even if you don’t use it explicitly, knowing about it will help you design studies carefully, define variables in advance, and interpret the results from exploratory studies more cautiously.

**Published Guidelines ICH Guidelines CPMP Points to consider**

CDRH Statistical Guidance ASA Ethical Guidelines

14
**Regulatory/Journal/Ethical/Professional Concerns**

Replicability (good science) Fairness Regulatory report: The drug company reported efficacy at p= We repeated the analysis in several different ways that the company might have done. In 20 re-analyses of the data, 18 produced p-values greater than Only one of the 20 re-analyses produced a p-value smaller than .047.

15
**Multiple Inferences: Notation**

There is a “family” of k inferences Parameters are q1,…, qk Null hypotheses are H01: q1=0, …, H0k: qk=0

16
**Comparisonwise Error Rate (CER)**

Intervals: CERj = P(Intervalj incorrect) Tests: CERj = P(Reject H0j | H0j is true) Usually CER = a =.05

17
**Familywise Error Rate (FWE)**

Intervals: FWE = 1 - P(all intervals are correct) Tests: FWE = P(reject at least one true null)

18
False Discovery Rate FDR = E(proportion of rejections that are incorrect) Let R = total # of rejections Let V = # of erroneous rejections FDR = E(V/R) (0/0 defined as 0). FWE = P(V>0)

19
**Bonferroni Method Identify Family of inferences**

Identify number of elements (k) in the Family Use a/k for all inferences. Ex: With k=36, p-values must be less than 0.05/36 = to be “significant”

20
**FWE Control for Bonferroni**

P(p0j1£.05/36 or … or p0jm £ .05/36 | H0j1,..., H0jmtrue) P(p0j1£.05/36) + … + P( p0jm £ .05/36) = (.05)m/36 £ .05 B A P(AÈB) £ P(A) + P(B)

21
**“Families” in clinical trials1**

Efficacy Safety Main Interest - Primary & Secondary Approval and Labeling depend on these. Tight FWE control needed. Serious and known treatment- related AEs FWE control not needed Lesser Interest - Depending on goals and reviewers, FWE controlling methods might be needed. All other AEs Reasonable to control FWE (or FDR) Supportive Tests - mostly descriptive FWE control not needed. Exploratory Tests - investigate new indications - future trials needed to confirm - do what makes sense. 1Westfall, P. and Bretz, F. (2003). Multiplicity in Clinical Trials.

**Classical Single-Step Testing and Interval Methods to Control FWE**

Simultaneous confidence intervals; Adjusted p-values Dunnett method Tukey’s method Simulation-based methods for general comparisons

23
**“Specificity” and “Sensitivity”**

…then use If you want ... Estimates of effect sizes & error margins Confident inequalities Overall Test Simultaneous Confidence Intervals Stepwise or closed tests F-test, O’Brien, etc.

24
**The Model Y = Xb + e where e ~ N(0, s2 I )**

Includes ANOVA, ANCOVA, regression For group comparisons, covariate adjustment Not valid for survival analysis, binary data, multivariate data

25
**Example: Pairwise Comparisons**

against Control Goal: Estimate all mean differences from control and provide simultaneous 95% error margins: /* Creating a data set with given means and SDs*/ data z; do g=0 to 6; do n= 1 to 4; z = rannor(0); output; end; end; run; proc standard data=z out=z mean=0 std=1; var z; by g; data toxfake; set z; if g=0 then gain = *z; if g=1 then gain = *z; if g=2 then gain = *z; if g=3 then gain = *z; if g=4 then gain = *z; if g=5 then gain = *z; if g=6 then gain = *z; proc means data=toxfake; var z gain; proc glm data=toxfake; class g; model gain=g; means g/dunnett; quit; What ca to use?

26
**Comparison of Critical Values**

**ca is the 1-a quantile of the distribution of**

maxi |Zi-Z0|/(2c2/df)1/2, called Dunnett’s two-sided range distribution.

29
**Adjusted p-Values Definition: Adjusted p-value =**

smallest FWE at which the hypothesis is rejected. or The FWE for which the confidence interval has “0” as a boundary.

30
**Adjusted p-values for Dunnett**

36
**ca is (1/Ö2) ´{the 1-a quantile**

of the distribution of maxi,i’ |Zi-Zi’|/(c2/df)1/2}, which is called the Studentized range distribution.

37
**Unbalanced Designs and/or Covariates**

Tukey method is conservative when the design is unbalanced and/or there are covariates; otherwise exact Dunnett method is conservative when there are covariates; otherwise exact “Conservative” means {True FWE} < {Nominal FWE} ; also means “less powerful”

38
**Tukey-Kramer Method for all pairwise comparisons**

Let ca be the critical value for the balanced case using Tukey’s method and the correct df. Intervals are Conservative (Hayter, 1984 Annals)

39
**Exact Method for General Comparisons of Means**

Details: The model is Y = X \beta + \epsilon Linear functions are \theta_i = c_i’ \beta , i=1,…,k. (assumed estimable) The dispersion matrix is Corr(C_K’ (X’X)^{-1} C_K), where C_K = [c_1 : … : c_k ] (GINV can be used for non-full-rank parameterizations) df = n – rank(X)

55
**Summary Include only comparisons of interest.**

Utilize correlations to be less conservative. The critical values can be computed exactly only in balanced ANOVA for all pairwise comparisons, or in unbalanced ANOVA for comparisons with control. Simulation-based methods are “exact” if you let the computer run for a while. This is my general recommendation.

56
**Power Analysis Sample size - Design of study**

Power is less when you use multiple comparisons Þ larger sample sizes Many power definitions Bonferroni & independence are convenient (but conservative) starting points

57
**Power Definitions “Complete Power” = P(Reject all H0i that are false)**

“Minimal Power” = P(Reject at least one H0i that is false) “Individual Power” = P(Reject a particular H0i that is false) “Proportional Power” = Average proportion of false H0i that are rejected Complete = “All pairs” power Minimal = “Any pair” power Individual = “per pair” power Proportional = “Average” Power

58
Power Calculations. Example: H1 and H2 powered individually at 50%; H3 and H4 powered individually at 80%, all tests independent. Complete Power = P(reject H1 and H2 and H3 and H4) = .5 ´ .5 ´ .8 ´ .8 = Minimal Power = P(reject H1or H2 or H3 or H4) = 1-P(“accept” H1 and H2 and H3 and H4) =1- (1-.5) ´ (1 -.5) ´ (1-.8)´ (1-.8) = Individual Power = P(reject H3 (say)) = (depends on the test) Proportional Power = ( )/4 = 0.65

59
**Sample Size for Adequate Individual Power - Conservative Estimate**

60
**Individual power of two-tail two-sample Bonferroni t-tests**

%let MuDiff = 5; /* Smallest meaningful difference MUx-MUy that you want to detect */ %let Sigma = 10.0 ; /* A guess of the population std. dev. */ %let alpha = .05 ; /* Familywise Type I error probability of the test */ %let k = 4; /* Number of tests */ options ls=76; data power; cer = &alpha/&k; do n = 2 to 100 by 2; *n=sample size for each group*; df = n + n - 2; ncp = (&Mudiff)/(&Sigma*sqrt(2/n)); * The noncentrality parameter *; tcrit = tinv(1-cer/2, df); * The critical t value * ; power = 1 - probt(tcrit, df, ncp) + probt(-tcrit,df,ncp) ; output; end; proc print data=power; run; proc plot data=power; plot power*n/vpos=30;

**Concluding Remarks - Power**

Need a bigger n Like to avoid bigger n (see sequential, gatekeepers methods later) Which definition? Bonferroni and independence useful Simulation useful – especially for the more complex methods that follow

66
**Closed and Stepwise Testing Methods I: Standard P-Value Based Methods**

…then use If you want ... Estimates of effect sizes & error margins Confident inequalities Overall Test Simultaneous Confidence Intervals Stepwise or closed tests Holm’s Method Hommel’s Method Hochberg’s Method Fisher Combination Method F-test, O’Brien, etc.

67
**Closed Testing Method(s)**

Form the closure of the family by including all intersection hypotheses. Test every member of the closed family by a (suitable) a-level test. (Here, a refers to comparison-wise error rate). A hypothesis can be rejected provided that its corresponding test is significant at level a, and every other hypothesis in the family that implies it is rejected by its a-level test.

68
**Closed Testing – Multiple Endpoints**

H0: d1=d2=d3=d4 =0 H0: d1=d2=d3 =0 H0: d1=d2=d4 =0 H0: d1=d3=d4 =0 H0: d2=d3=d4 =0 H0: d1=d2 =0 H0: d1=d3 =0 H0: d1=d4 =0 H0: d2=d3 =0 H0: d2=d4 =0 H0: d3=d4 =0 H0: d1=0 p = H0: d2=0 p = H0: d3=0 p = H0: d4=0 p = Where dj = mean difference, treatment -control, endpoint j.

69
**Closed Testing – Multiple Comparisons**

m1=m2=m3=m4 m1=m2, m3=m4 m1=m3, m2=m4 m1=m4, m2=m3 m1=m2=m3 m1=m2=m4 m1=m3=m4 m2=m3=m4 m1=m2 m1=m3 m1=m4 m2=m3 m2=m4 m3=m4 Note: Logical implications imply that there are only 14 nodes, not = 63 nodes.

70
**Control of FWE with Closed Tests**

Suppose H0j1,..., H0jm all are true (unknown to you which ones). {Reject at least one of H0j1,..., H0jmusing CTP} {Reject H0j1Ç... Ç H0jm } Thus, P(reject at least one of H0j1,..., H0jm | H0j1,..., H0jm all are true) £ P(reject H0j1Ç... Ç H0jm | H0j1,..., H0jm all are true) = a Eg, H2, H4 true. P(reject H2 or H4). Using closure, you must reject H2 \cap H4 to *have an opportunity* to reject H2 or H4. So the set of studies in which H2 or H4 is rejected is smaller. Draw a Venn diagram: A = (Reject H2 \cap H4). B= (Reject either H2 or H4 using closure) Clearly, B is a subset of A. Therefore, the probability of B is less than the probability of A.

71
**Examples of Closed Testing Methods**

When the Composite Test is… Then the Closed Method is … Bonferroni MinP Resampling-Based MinP Simes O’Brien Simple or weighted test … Holm’s Method Westfall-Young method Hommel’s method Lehmacher’s method Fixed sequence test (a-priori ordered) …

72
P-value Based Methods Test global hypotheses using p-value combination tests Benefit – Fewer model assumptions: only need to say that the p-values are valid Allows for models other than homoscesdastic normal linear models (like survival analysis).

73
**Holm’s Method is Closed Testing Using the Bonferroni MinP Test**

Reject H0j1 ÇH0j2Ç... Ç H0jm if Min (p0j1 , p0j2 ,... , p0jm ) £ a/m. Or, Reject H0j1 ÇH0j2Ç... Ç H0jm if p* = m ´ Min (p0j1 , p0j2 ,... , p0jm ) £ a. (Note that p* is a valid p-value for the joint null, comparable to p-value for Hotellings T2 test.)

**Shortcut For Holm’s Method**

Let H(1) ,…,H(k) be the hypotheses corresponding to p(1) £ … £ p(k) If p(1) £ a/k, reject H(1) and continue, else stop and retain all H(1) ,…,H(k) . If p(2) £ a/(k-1), reject H(2) and continue, else stop and retain all H(1) ,…,H(k) . … If p(k) £ a, reject H(k) Discuss

76
**Adjusted p-values for Closed Tests**

The adjusted p-value for H0j is the maximum of all p-values over all relevant nodes In the previous example, pA(1)=0.0484,pA(2)=0.0484, pA(3)=0.0484, pA(4)= General formula for Holm: pA(j)= maxi£j (k-i+1)p(i) .

**Simes’ Test for Global Hypotheses**

Uses all p-values p1, p2, …, pm not just the MinP Simes’ test rejects H01ÇH02Ç...ÇH0m if p(j) £ ja/m for at least one j. Þ p-value for the joint test is p* = min {(m/j)p(j)} Uniformly smaller p-value than m ´ MinP Type I error at most a under independence or positive dependence of p-values

79
Rejection Regions p2 1 a a/2 1 a/2 a p1 P(Simes Reject) = 1 – (1- a/2)2 + (a/2)2 = a P(Bonferroni Reject ) = 1 – (1- a/2)2 = a - (a/2)2

80
**Hommel’s Method (Closed Simes)**

H0: d1=d2=d3=d4 =0 p*=0.0255 H0: d1=d2=d3 =0 p*=0.0213 H0: d1=d2=d4 =0 p*=0.0191 H0: d1=d3=d4 =0 p*=0.0287 H0: d2=d3=d4 =0 p*=0.0287 H0: d1=d2 =0 p*=0.0142 H0: d1=d3 =0 p*=0.0242 H0: d1=d4 =0 p*=0.0191 H0: d2=d3 =0 p*=0.0284 H0: d2=d4 =0 p*=0.0191 H0: d3=d4 =0 p*=0.0382 H0: d1=0 p = H0: d2=0 p = H0: d3=0 p = H0: d4=0 p = Where dj = mean difference, treatment -control, endpoint j.

81
**Adjusted P-values for Hommel’s Method**

Again, take the maximum p-value over all hypotheses that imply the given one. In the previous example, the Hommel adjusted p-values are pA(1)=0.0287, pA(2)=0.0287, pA(3)=0.0382, pA(4)= These adjusted p-values are always smaller than the Holm step-down adjusted p-values.

82
**Adjusted P-values for Hommel’s Method**

They are maxima over relevant nodes In example, Hommel adjusted p-values are pA(1)=0.0287, pA(2)=0.0287, pA(3)=0.0382, pA(4)= {Hommel adjusted p-value} ≤ {Holm adjusted p-value}

83
Hochberg’s Method A conservative but simpler approximation to Hommel’s method {Hommel adjusted p-value} ≤ {Hochberg adjusted p-value} ≤ {Holm adjusted p-value}

84
**Hochberg’s Shortcut Method**

Let H(1) ,…,H(k) be the hypotheses corresponding to p(1) £ … £ p(k) If p(k) £ a, reject all H(j) and stop, else retain H(k) and continue. If p(k-1) £ a/2, reject H(2) … H(k) and stop, else retain H(k-1) and continue. … If p(1) £ a/k, reject H(k) Adjusted p-values are pA(j)= minj£i (k-i+1)p(i) .

90
Concluding Notes Closed testing more powerful than single-step (a/m rather than a/k). P-value based methods can be used whenever p-values are valid Dependence issues: MinP (Holm) conservative Simes (Hommel, Hochberg) less conservative, rarely anti-conservative Fisher combination, Liptak require independence

**Closed and Stepwise Testing Methods II: Fixed Sequences and Gatekeepers**

Methods Covered: Fixed Sequences (hierarchical endpoints, dose response, non-inferiority superiority) Gatekeepers (primary and secondary analyses) Multiple Gatekeepers (multiple endpoints & multiple doses) Intersection-Union tests* * Doesn’t really belong in this section

92
Fixed Sequence Tests Pre-specify H1, H2, …, Hk, and test in this sequence, stopping as soon as you fail to reject. No a-adjustment is necessary for individual tests. Applications: Dose response: High vs. Control, then Mid vs. Control, then Low vs. Control Primary endpoint, then Secondary endpoint

93
**Fixed Sequence as a Closed Procedure**

H123: d1=d2=d3 =0 Rej if p1 £.05 H12: d1=d2=0 Rej if p1 £.05 H13: d1=d3 =0 Rej if p1 £.05 H23: d2=d3 =0 Rej if p2 £.05 H1: d1=0 Rej if p1 £.05 H2: d2 =0 Rej if p2 £.05 H3: d3 =0 Rej if p3 £.05 Rej H1 if p1£.05 Rej H2 if p1£.05 and p2£.05 Rej H3 if p1£.05 and p2£.05 and p3£.05

94
**A Seemingly Reasonable But Incorrect Protocol**

1. Test Dose 2 vs Pbo, and Dose 3 vs Pbo using the Bonferroni method (0.025 level). 2. Test Dose 1 vs Pbo at the unadjusted 0.05 level only if at least one of the first two tests is significant at the level.

95
The problem: FWE » 0.075 Moral: Caution needed when there are multiple hypotheses at some point in the sequence.

96
**Correcting the Incorrect Protocol: Use Closure**

Where pij = 2min(pi,pj)

**Intersection-Union (IU) Tests**

Union-Intersection (UI): Nulls are intersections, alternatives are unions. H0: {d1=0 and d2=0} vs. H1: {d1¹0 or d2¹0} Intersection-Union (IU): Nulls are unions, alternatives are intersections H0: {d1=0 or d2=0} vs. H1: {d1¹0 and d2¹0} IU is NOT a closed procedure. It is just a single test of a different kind of null hypothesis.

99
**Applications of I-U Bioequivalence: The “TOST” test:**

Test 1. H01: d £ -d0 vs. HA1: d > -d0 Test 2. H01: d ³ d0 vs. HA1: d < d0 Can test both at a=.05, but must reject both. Combination Therapy: Test 1. H01: m12 £ m1 vs. HA1: m12 > m1 Test 2. H01: m12 £ m2 vs. HA1: m12 > m2

100
**Control of Type I Error for IU tests**

Suppose d1=0 or d2=0. Then P(Type I error) = P(Reject H0) (1) = P(p1£.05 and p2£.05) (2) < min{P(p1£.05), P(p2£.05)} (3) = (4) Note: The inequality at (3) becomes an approximate equality when p2 is extremely noncentral.

101
**Concluding Notes: Fixed Sequences and Gatekeepers**

Many times, no adjustment is necessary at all! Other times you can gain power by specifying gatekeeping sequences However, you must clearly state the method and follow the rules There are many “incorrect” no adjustment methods - use caution

**Permutation Tests for Composite Hypotheses H0K**

Joint p-value = proportion of the n!/(nT!nC!) permutations for which miniÎK Pi* £ miniÎK pi .

128
**Problem; Simplification**

Problem: There are 2k -1 subsets K to be tested This might take a while... Simplification: You need only test k of the 2k-1 subsets! Why? Because P(miniÎK Pi* £ c) £ P(miniÎK’ Pi* £ c) when KÌ K’. Significance for most lower order subsets is determined by significance of higher order subsets.

129
**MULTTEST PROCEDURE Tests only the needed subsets (k, not 2k - 1).**

Samples from the permutation distribution. Only one sample is needed, not k distinct samples, if the joint distribution of minP is identical under HK and HS. (Called the “subset pivotality” condition by Westfall and Young, 1993, valid under location shift and other models)

130
**Great Savings are Possible with Exact Permutation Tests!**

Why? Suppose you test H12…k using MinP. The joint p-value is p* = P(MinP £ minp) £ P(P1 £ minp) + P(P2 £ minp) + … + P(Pk £ minp) Many summands can be zero, others much less than minp.

**Subset Pivotality, PROC MULTTEST**

MULTTEST requires “subset pivotality” condition, which states cases where resampling under the global null is valid. Valid cases: Multivariate Regression Model (location-shift). Multivariate permutation multiple comparisons, one test per variable, assuming model with exchangeable subsets. Not Valid with: Permutation multiple comparisons, within a variable, with three or more groups, Heteroscedasticity. Closed testing “by hand” works regardless.

**Summary: Nonparametric Closed Tests**

Nonparametric closed tests are simple, in principle. Robustness gains and power advantages are possible.

**Repeated Measures and Multiple Comparisons**

Usually considered quite complicated (wave hands, use Bonferroni) PROC GLIMMIXED provides a viable solution The method is approximate because of its df approximation, and because it treats estimated variance ratios as known.

**Further Topics: False Discovery Rate**

FDR = E(proportion of rejections that are incorrect) Let R = total # of rejections Let V = # of erroneous rejections FDR = E(V/R) (0/0 defined as 0). FWE = P(V>0)

154
**Example 30 independent tests:**

20 null hypotheses are true with pj~U(0,1) 10 extremely alternative with pj = 0. Decision rule: Reject H0j if pj £ 0.05 Then: CERj = P(reject H0j | H0j true ) = 0.05. FWE = P(reject one or more of the 20) = 1-(.95)20 =0.64 FDR = E{V/(V+10)} where V~Bin(20.05) so FDR =

155
**Benjamini and Hochberg’s FDR-Controlling Method**

Let H(1) ,…,H(k) be the hypotheses corresponding to p(1) £ … £ p(k) If p(k) £ a, reject all H(j) and stop, else continue. If p(k-1) £ (k-1)a/k, reject H(1) … H(k-1) and stop, else continue. … If p(1) £ a/k, reject H(1) Adjusted p-values: pA(j)= minj£i (k/i)p(i) .

156
**Comparison with Hochberg’s Method**

A step-up procedure, like Hochberg’s method adjusted p-values are pA(j)= minj£i (k/i)p(i) . Recall for Hochberg’s method, pA(j)= minj£i (k-i+1)p(i) . FDR adjusted p-values are uniformly smaller since k/i £ k-i+1 B-H FDR method uses Simes’ critical points.

157
**Critical Values – FDR vs FWE**

158
**Comments on FDR Control**

Considered better for large numbers of tests since FWE is inconsistent Is adaptive Has a loose Bayesian correspondence Easy to misinterpret the results: Given 10 FDR<.10 rejections in a given study, it is tempting to claim that only one can be in error (in an “average” sense). However, this is incorrect, as E(V/R | R>0) > a.

**Waller-Duncan Loss Function Approach**

Let dij = mi-mj. Let Li<j(dij) denote the loss of declaring mi<mj. Let Li>j(dij) denote the loss of declaring mi>mj. Let Li~j(dij) denote the loss of declaring mi n.s. different from mj. W-D Loss functions* Li~j(dij) = |dij| Li<j(dij) = 0, dij<0, = kdij otherwise Li>j(dij) = -kdij, dij<0, = 0 otherwise See Pennello, G The k-ratio multiple comparisons Bayes rule for the balanced two-way design. Journal of the American Statistical Association 92: * Equivalent form; See Hochberg and Tamhane (1987, )

**Implementation Waller – Duncan in PROC GLM**

More general: Simulate from posterior pdf of the mij, calculate all three losses, average, and choose decision with smallest average loss.

**Bayesian Multiple Testing**

Frequentist univariate testing: Calculate p-value = P(data more extreme | H0) Bayesian univariate testing: Calculate P(H0 is true | Data) Frequentist multiple testing: if H01, H02, … , H0k are all true (or if many are true) then we get a small p-value by chance alone. use a more conservative rule. Bayesian multiple testing: Express the doubt about many or all H0i being true using prior distribution; use this to calculate posterior probabilities P(H0i is true | Data).

171
**Bayesian Multiple Testing: Methodology**

Find posterior probability for each of the 2k models where qi is either =0 or ¹0. Then P(qi = 0| Z) = (Sum of posterior probs for all 2k-1 models where qi = 0) (Sum of posterior probs for all 2k models) Gopalan, R., and Berry, D.A. (1998), Bayesian Multiple Comparisons Using Dirichlet Process Priors, Journal of the American Statistical Association 93, Gönen, M., Westfall, P.H. and Johnson, W.O. (2003). Bayesian multiple testing for two-sample multivariate endpoints," Biometrics 59,

172
**The %BayesTests Macro: Priors**

You can specify your level of prior doubt about individual hypotheses. You can specify either (i) P(H0i is true) or (ii) P(H0i is true, all i) , or both. You can specify (iii) the degree of prior correlation among the individual hypotheses. Specify two out of three of (i), (ii), and (iii). The third is determined by the other two. Specify prior expected effect sizes and prior variances of effect sizes (default: mean effect size is 2.5, variance= 2.)

173
**The %BayesTests Macro: Data Assumptions, Inputs, and Outputs**

Assume: tests are free combinations (e.g.,multiple endpoints); MANOVA; Large Samples. Inputs: t-statistics and their (conditional) large-sample correlation matrix (this is the partial correlation matrix in the case of multiple endpoints); priors. Outputs: Posterior probabilities P(H0i is true | Data).

**%BayesTests Example: Multiple Endpoints in Panic Disorder Study**

**The Effect of Prior Correlation: Borrowing Strength**

177
**The Bayesian Multiplicity Effect**

If the multiple comparisons concern, “What if many or all nulls are true” is valid, the Bayesian must attach a higher probability to P(H0i is true, all i). Here is the result of setting P(H0i is true, all i) = .5. This was the “right answer”!!! “Right” answers, See Westfall, P.H., Krishen,A. and Young, S.S.(1998).

178
**Summary: Bayesian Methods**

Several Bayesian MCPs are available! Intervals Tests Rankings Decision theory Other current research: FDR – Bayesian connection (genetics) Mixture models and Bayesian MCPs (variable selection)

179
**Discussion Good methods and software are available**

You can’t use the excuse “I don’t have to use MCPs because there is no good method available” This brings us back to the $100,000,000 question: “When should we use MCPs/MTPs”?

180
**When Should You Adjust? A Scientific View**

When there is substantial doubt concerning the collection of hypotheses tested When you data snoop When you play “pick the winner” When conclusions require joint validity Doubt exists. Otherwise why do the trial?

181
**But What “Family” Should I Use?**

The set over which you play “pick the winner” The set of conclusions requiring joint validity Not always well-defined Better to decide at design stage or simply to “frame the discussion”

182
**Multiplicity Invites Selection; Selection has an Effect**

Variability, probability theory, VERY relevant.
