risk of death, 32.3% lower, RR 0.68, p = 0.46, treatment 97 of 225 (43.1%), control 14 of 22 (63.6%), adjusted per study.

prioritizing more serious outcomes. For an individual study the most serious

however this provides the strongest evidence for the most serious outcomes
when combining the results of many trials.
