The Clinical Trial Simulator (CTS) is a free software package that can simulate Randomized Controlled Clinical Trials (RCTs). With the CTS a user can explore aspects of the design, conduction and analyses of RCTs. The CTS includes a sample size calculator for clinical trials (using formulas). Sample size can then be adjusted (using simulations) for the effect of lost-to-follow-up, non-compliance, cross-over, etc.

Help with writing trial protocols: The Trial Protocol Tool comes in English and Spanish and as a Windows HTML Help file or as a browser-based tool. Download the Windows HTML Help version if you want the Trial Protocol Tool to look like the help system of Microsoft Word or Excel. If you would prefer to use the Trial Protocol Tool in a browser, download the browser version. Downloading this version does not mean that you need an Internet connection to use the tool once it has been downloaded. Finally, if you use a Mac or Linux machine, download the browser version without the Windows installer.
