|Abstract: ||Consider sequential trials comparing two treatments with binary responses. The goal is to derive accurate confidence sets for the treatment difference and the individual success probabilities of the two treatments. We shall begin with the signed-root transformation as a pivot and then apply the approximate theory of Weng and Woodroofe  to form accurate confidence sets of these parameters. The explicit correction terms of the pivots are obtained. The simulation studies agree well with the theoretical results.|
