Truth vs Hype in the JUPITER study

Postby Brian C. » Tue Nov 11, 2008 3:49 am

Dr Eades does a good forensic job on that Astra-Zeneca sponsored Crestor study...


He concludes :

"But, let’s assume I’m taking this study at its absolute worst. Let’s look at it in the best light possible. If we do, we find that a small group of unusual patients - those with low LDL-cholesterol AND high C-reactive protein - may slightly decrease their risk for all-cause mortality by taking a drug that costs them almost $1,300 per year and slightly increases their risk for developing diabetes. That’s the best spin possible given the data from this study. Compare that to the spin the media is giving it."

Ah, Brian. What was true in the beginning is still true: great minds DO think alike.
