This news is just announcing the trial has reached completion...not an end point of statistical significance. All trials end at some point, the real news will be... did the drug work better than the control arm????
Umm...they didn't "pass" anything. All that has happened is a completion of a trial. This doesn't mean anything as far as if the drug is effective. Just because your friend runs a race and finishes, it does not mean they won that race...JUST FINISHED it! Oh wait...you must be a liberal, so everone gets a medal.
