The prespecified rule for stopping the study was based on the boundary for significance, as referred to by Peto et al.16 and Slutsky and Lavery. 17 There have been six plank meetings between February 2006 and September 2009, where early termination of the study was not considered. On November 7, 2006, the plank recommended that all individuals be implemented to the calendar-time end of the analysis rather than for only 50 several weeks, as originally scheduled. The study protocol was amended accordingly. Analyses were predicated on the intention-to-treat theory. Between-group comparisons of characteristics of the sufferers were performed by using Student’s t-test for continuous variables and the chi-square test or Fisher’s exact check for categorical variables.18 The Cox proportional-hazards model was used to identify factors connected with an increased risk of death.Other researchers in these departments contributed to this article. ‘Our study shows the value of a combination strategy that delivers an enzyme to attack and destroy beta-amyloid proteins in the brain and enhances the immune program's ability to clear beta-amyloid and resist other brain-damaging procedures like uncontrolled swelling,’ said Maya Koronyo-Hamaoui, PhD, assistant professor of neurosurgery in the Department of Neurosurgery and the Department of Biomedical Sciences.
