In Reply: Dr Mautone expresses concern that
we did not give credit to some trials for ITT analyses even when this was
stated in the text of our article. In Reichelt's study, the ITT results for
the primary outcome measure are not reported—the trials by Rovati and
Bucsi gave no indication of an ITT approach. For the study by Bourgeois et
al, we would like to acknowledge that this was indeed misclassified in the
table in our article, as Mautone points out.
