fatal and nonfatal myocardial infarctions plus sudden cardiac deaths (events per 1000 patients over 5 years)
The six open-label groups are designated first by the original randomization (P = placebo, G = gemfibrozil) and then by the drug taken in the follow-up period (N = Attend clinic but took no drug, G = gemfibrozil, Drop = No attendance at clinic during open-label).
Intention-to-Treat Analysis of originally randomized patients neglecting the open-label treatment switches and exposure to study conditions.
Hazard ratio for risk event in the group originally randomized to gemfibrozil compared to the group originally randomized to placebo neglecting open-label treatment switch and exposure to study conditions.
95% confidence intervals of gemfibrozil:placebo group hazard ratio
Fatal and non-fatal myocardial infarctions plus sudden cardiac deaths over the 8.5 year period.
