Abstract

The aim of this statistical note, the sixth in the series, is to introduce the rationale of the test of hypothesis suitable for comparing the effect of two treatments in a randomized controlled clinical trial of superiority. The presentation takes advantage of the analogy with a criminal trial debate based upon circumstantial evidence in an Italian Court. The results of three randomized controlled clinical trials: ISIS-1, AIMS and RESTORE are introduced and proper ways for their interpretation are suggested.
