How to translate clinical trial results into gain in healthy life expectancy for individual patients

Treatment effects from randomised trials are typically expressed as numbers needed to treat to prevent one adverse disease event during a fixed time interval (eg, five or 10 years). In the actual patient, however, many diseases are chronically progressive, despite treatment. Examples are diabetic nephropathy, some types of malignancies, osteoporosis, and atherosclerosis. In these examples, the aim of treatment is not to prevent but to delay the occurrence of symptomatic disease. Thus the actual effect of treatment is gain in disease-free life expectancy

Symptoms of peripheral arterial disease: ramipril | Key-points-from-the-evidence | Advice | NICE

Two small RCTs (Ahimastos et al. 2006, n=40 and Shahin et al. 2013a, n=33) found that, compared with placebo, over 24 weeks, ramipril 10 mg daily improved maximum and pain‑free walking times and distances in people with stable intermittent claudication, a symptom of peripheral arterial disease. However, while these differences were statistically significant, the clinical importance of the results is unclear. No adverse effects were reported in 1 study. In the other study, the adverse effect most often reported with ramipril was cough, which led to discontinuation in some cases.
