Abstract: We study two sequential, response-adaptive randomized designs for clinical trials one has been proposed in Bandy-opadhyay and Biswas (2001) and Biswas and Basu (2001), the other stems from randomly reinforced urn introduced and studied in Muliere et al.(2005). Both designs can be used in clinical trials where the response from each patient is a continuous variable. Comparison is conducted through numerical studies and along a new guideline for the evaluation of a response-adaptive design
