The anacetrapib giggle

Stan has a link up to the full text but here is the fun table:

My summary is that a much larger study is desperately needed to confirm that the 300% increase found in cardiovascular mortality is a direct effect of anacetrapib. An even larger study is also urgently required to demonstrate statistical significance for the more modest increase in all cause mortality caused by this drug.

Volunteers should join the queue marked "idiot", unless they are certain that they will get in to the placebo group.


Still no blogging but this was too fun to skip.
