A randomized delayed-start design consists of two-stages where patients in the first stage are randomized to receive a new treatment or a control and in the second stage patients randomized to receive the control in the first stage switch to receive the new treatment. We develop an integrated analysis of efficacy (IAE) where efficacy from stage one from a parallel group comparison is combined with efficacy from second stage from intra-patient comparison. As a result of IAE, the trial is 55% to 80% more efficient than a traditional parallel group design, which is often not feasible for rare disease drug development.
