Basket clinical trials are a new category of early clinical trials in which a treatment is evaluated in a population of patients with tumors of various histologic types and primary sites selected for containing specific genomic abnormalities. The objective of such studies is generally to discover histologic types in which the treatment is active. Basket trials are early discovery trials whose results should be confirmed in expanded histology specific cohorts. In this report, we develop a design for planning, monitoring, and analyzing basket trials. A website for using the new design is available at and the software is available at GitHub in the "Basket Trials" repository of account brbnci.
