"Trial data analysis showed a highly statistically significant reduction in the relative risk of mortality of 19.4 percent (p-value = 0.005) for those treated with Zovant, which was administered as a continuous infusion of 24 micrograms per kilogram per hour for 96 hours compared with those patients receiving placebo. The mortality rates were 24.7 percent among Zovant-treated patients versus 30.8 percent among patients treated with placebo. The response to Zovant was consistent across almost all patient subgroups in the clinical trial. Zovant increased the odds of survival by 38.1 percent."
The 19.4% decrease in mortality is correct. Where the hell did they get the numbers in the last line? Isn't 'increasing odds of survival" and decreased mortality rate essentially the same thing??? 38 v. 19% is a huge difference!!!! Other than multiplying by 2, I can't make 38% out of any of these numbers.
