Software Packages Developed

1. MULTC99[download]: A C program that performs the design and simulation for sequential multiple outcomes monitoring clinical trials.

2. EFFTOX99[download] : a software for the design and simulation of the phase I dose-finding clinical trials which monitor efficacy and toxicity simultaneously.

3. DAGS: an implementation of the Markov Chain Monte Carlo algorithm for the Bayesian model averaging of direct acyclic graph models.
