Title: Sequential testing of composite hypotheses and its application in
clinical trials

In this talk, some old problems that arise in the context of fully
sequential methodology are discussed. In particular, the one arising
 when testing composite hypothesis in the presence of nuisance parameters
is considered. Some recent parametric and nonparametric solutions of the
problem are reviewed and compared to their group sequential testing
counterparts. The methods are then illustrated using a clinical trial
data.
