JMP® Clinical: Streamlining
Safety Reviews in Drug Trials

Graph Builder in JMP ClinicalJMP Clinical software, now available from SAS, shortens the drug development process by streamlining safety reviews during clinical trials. JMP Clinical is designed for medical reviewers, epidemiologists, data monitors, biostatisticians and biometrics groups engaged in analyzing safety data from clinical trials. It dynamically links advanced statistics and graphics, enabling sophisticated analysis of adverse events, labs, incidence indicators and patient profiles. Interactive data visualization capabilities let users see and explore safety data from every angle, then easily share findings with others. "It was clear to us early on that JMP Clinical will help us achieve a quicker turnaround in the drug approval process," said Steve Wong of Gilead Sciences Inc., Senior Director for Statistical Programming in the company's Biometrics Department and a beta tester for JMP Clinical. "I believe JMP has hit a home run with this tool."

Discovery Summit Features Author of 'Predictably Irrational' Best-Seller

Dan ArielyDan Ariely, author of The New York Times best-seller Predictably Irrational, will discuss his ongoing research in the realm of behavioral economics, the study of how people act in real-world situations. If you've read his book, you know his mantra: we may believe we have the ability to make rational choices, but our conduct is highly illogical - in a predictable sort of way. Come hear about why we cheat, disregard nutrition labels and let short-term emotions affect long-term business decisions, among many other paradoxes of human nature.

Lighting the Path to a Green Revolution

LED LightingCree Inc., the market-leading innovator of LED lighting based in Durham, NC, has a mission: to eliminate all energy-wasting light bulbs from the face of the Earth. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the Water Cube aquatic center glowed with the light of 496,000 Cree XLamp light-emitting diodes. Authorities were so pleased by the pure, bright light that Cree was asked to switch out the fluorescent bulbs originally planned to light the exterior of the Bird's Nest Stadium and replace them with 258,000 of the energy-saving semiconductors. JMP helps find and correct imperfections in the manufacturing process.

When a Diamond Is Not Forever

DiamondsAfter his wife lost the diamond from her ring while snorkeling, JMP Product Manager Lou Valente needed to replace it. "I am now older and perhaps wiser this second time around. I decided to do my homework and leverage my JMP savvy for my decision making process," Lou writes. He collected data on diamond rings and used the Profiler in JMP to help him choose the right diamond. Try out Lou's Profiler in his blog post and download his JMP file from the JMP File Exchange.
