We consider response-adaptive design of clinical trials under a variance-penalized criterion in the presence of mismeasurement. An explicit expression for the variance-penalized criterion with misclassified dichotomous responses is derived for response-adaptive designs and some properties are discussed. A new target proportion of treatment allocation is proposed under the criterion and related simulation results are presented.
