It explains and analyses the provided data and draws the conclusion from the information a sample data contained (Peck, Olsen & Devore, 2015). statistics is majorly used for appropriate data collection and presentation of complex data in suitable graphs, tables and diagrammatic forms to make it clear and easily understandable. Moreover, it helps to understand the complexity and pattern of variations in phenomenon of nature and is useful to plan a statistical analysis correctly and efficiently in any area of research (James et al., 2013).

Both the TGA and FDA have over the past 10 years considered changes to this model –

1/. what are those changes? 2/. was any facet of the recommendation for change, incorporated into that current phased trial agenda? 3/. what changes have been proposed, and subsequently failed, why? 4/. What are both agencies attitude towards simulated trial data? its use for drug registration? and its ability to potentiate really world likeness? 5/. What are the agencies attitude to….
