A randomized two-stage adaptive Bayesian design is proposed and studied for allocation and comparison in a phase III clinical trial with survival time as treatment response. Several exact and limiting properties of the design and the follow-up inference are studied, both numerically and theoretically, and are compared with a single-stage randomized procedure. The applicability of the proposed methodology is illustrated by using some real data.
