Data on CHD Mortality and Total Mortality

Posted by shamley on 20 Feb 2015 at 08:13 GMT

Dear Drs. Mozaffarian, Micha and Wallace

In your meta-analysis you mentioned the number of events, the pooled RR and the 95% confidence interval for CHD mortality and total mortality, but did not provide the breakdown of the number of events, the RR and the weighting for each trial (such as in figure 2) and did not provide the p value for CHD mortality and totality

I would appreciate, and I imagine other readers would too, if you could provide these figures, which would enable the reader to understand how you arrived at those results (not that the results are being questioned)

Regards,

Steven
