Study Oversight Fenofibrate and matching placebo were donated by Abbott Laboratories; simvastatin was donated by Merck. The drug manufacturers had no part in the design of the scholarly research, in the accrual or analysis of the info, or in the planning of the manuscript. All authors vouch for the precision and completeness of the reported data. Statistical Analysis The study was designed to recruit 5800 patients, with a power of 87 percent to detect a 20 percent decrease in the rate of the principal outcome for patients in the fenofibrate group, in comparison with placebo, assuming a two-sided alpha level of 0.05, a primary outcome rate of 2.4 percent each year in the placebo group, and an average follow-up of around 5.6 years for patients who did not have a meeting.
