  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
While the study reached the target accrual of 60 confirmed cases, it was not powered to detect a difference in mortality. Higher disease severity in the placebo group at entry complicated both the efficacy and safety analyses.
