Explanation:
Hi Hammersley

You can also say "tamaño de la randomización forzada en bloque", although the word "forzada" (forcing) is unnecessary, since all block randmizations are forced.

"Block randomization" is a statistical technique in clinical trials in which a block size (e.g., 4 patients, 6 patients) is chosen, and the number of pts. assigned to each treatment is proportional (1:1; 2:1; 3:1) within the block size chosen.

This technique is used when the total number of pts. needed for a trial may be difficult to enroll. Block randmization assures a balanced number of pts. per arm treatment.

Good luck
Elena
