⋅The primary analysis is based on a meta-analysis with fixed effects. This model assumes a common effect size shared by all the studies (no heterogeneity across the studies). The estimate of the overall risk difference was computed as a weighted average of the study specific risk differences. Studies with smaller variance were given more weight.
⋅As a sensitivity analysis, a meta-analysis with random effects (DerSimonian-Laird method) was performed. The model estimates were adjusted to incorporate a measure of the variability across studies.
Supportive Analysis
⋅FDA conducted a supportive analysis comparing the proportion of subjects with NPAEs among the three treatment groups: INSTI, EFV, and PI.
⋅This analysis was performed with data from the 5 clinical trials included in the meta-analysis, plus SPRING-2.
