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.
