The landscape of dose-finding designs for phase I clinical trials is rapidly shifting in the recent years, noticeably marked by the emergence of interval-based designs. We categorize them as the iDesigns and the IB-Designs. The iDesigns are originated by the toxicity probability interval (TPI) designs and its two modifications, the mTPI and mTPI-2 designs. The IB-Designs started as the cumulative cohort design (CCD) and is recently extended by the BOIN design. We discuss the differences and similarities between these two classes of interval-based designs, and compare their simulation performance with popular non-interval designs, such as the CRM and 3+3 designs. We also show that in addition to the population-level operating characteristics from simulated trials, investigators should also assess the dose-finding decision tables from the implemented designs to better understand the per-trial and per-patient behavior. This is particularly important for nonstatisticians to assess the designs with transparency. We provide a comprehensive simulation-based comparative study on various interval-based dose-finding designs.
