okay but where in the question is it asking whether it's intention to treat or per protocol or as treated???

are we to assume its ITT if they don't mention anything or the part of the question that says "primary analysis" the giveway to ITT??

kpjk  I had the same doubt. I think if we were to consider "per protocol" then answer would have to be a mash of options A and B. There is no option that would be right for per protocol +  
peqmd  I think ITT is assumed b/c it's the one that has reduced biased in measurements. +

By default you should use intention to treat analysis b/c it's the most conservative.

seagull  This has to do with Intention-to-treat analysis. Essentially, when participants are non-adherent but the data shouldn't be lost. They just undergo another statistical model to account for their changes. Here is a nice video +18  
dr.xx  Where does the question mention "intention-to-treat"? +  
notadoctor  They seem to be pretty obsessed with "intention-to-treat" it's been asked in one way or another in all the new NBMEs that I've done. (Haven't done 24 as yet) +8  
wutuwantbruv  They don't, intention-to-treat is just the best way to go about it @dr.xx +  
smc213  Great for ITT: +4  
yex  I agree with @notadoctor !! +  
ergogenic22  i think if it were per protocol, both groups would be excluded, the ones that were inconsistent, the ones that dropped out, and the ones that switched. But answer choices only allow ITT or exclusion of one group. +

I didn't think much on this question for me the key was the word random- HTN pts were randomly given A or B medication. Don't know which so if people in the study leave or dont take medicine. I dont care. I am including all random data regardless!
