Calculation time with the maximum number of simulations (10,000) should take about 1 minute. If wait times are longer than a couple of minutes, we may be experiencing a heavy load on our servers. Please contact adecamp@scharp.org for assistance.

Power Calculator for Repeated-Low Dose Challenge Studies

This calculator computes the statistical power of a randomized controlled repeated-low dose challenge study in non-human primates given the inputs provided. Power is for testing the null hypothesis that the relative risk (vaccine group vs control group) of infection per challenge is one versus the alternative hypothesis that the relative risk equals the input value. For a detailed description of the method see:
