In this talk, I will introduce a set of interval dose-finding designs, including the mTPI, mTPI-2, BOIN, and Keyboard designs. I will provide a theoretical and practical overview of these methods, their frequentist performance, and the pros and cons when compared to standard designs such as 3+3. Model-based designs such as CRM and BLRM will also be discussed. Finally, a new design, called the i3+3 design will be introduced, which is completely model-free. The i3+3 design stands for the interval 3+3 design, which uses a set of simple rules for dose escalation. The performance of the i3+3 design is compared with the interval designs, the 3+3 design, and the CRM and BLRM designs. A new metric to summarize the operating characteristics into a single value is used to evaluate all the designs.
