Proper allocation of subjects to study arms in clinical trials is an important task. Generally, you can randomly assign samples to a study arm, assign them based on some other set of criteria or assign them based on the performance in each arm.
Simple randomization assigns a new subject to a group according to a generalized Bernoulli distribution.
Block randomization permutes blocks of assignments to determine group assignment.
Adds random block lengths for each block to prevent deciphering.
Permutes a predefined list of assignments to determine group assignment.
Permutes a predefined list of assignments to determine group assignment while minimizing the length of runs.
Minimization allocates subjects to study arms in such as way that selected covariates are balanced between the study arms.
Bayesian method to randomizes new subjects to a study arm favoring the arm with the better response using biased coin techniques.
Randomizes new subjects to a study arm favoring the arm with the better response.
