risk of disease progression, 84.9% lower, RR 0.15, p = 0.006, treatment 261, control 355, adjusted per study, binary logistic regression.
improvement time, 24.0% lower, relative time 0.76, p = 0.02, treatment 261, control 355, adjusted per study, Cox proportional hazards regression.
Effect extraction follows pre-specified rules
prioritizing more serious outcomes. For an individual study the most serious
outcome may have a smaller number of events and lower statistical signficance,
however this provides the strongest evidence for the most serious outcomes
when combining the results of many trials.
