Yesterday, there was much hay made of Lipitor's statisitically significant better results than Pravachol.

The measurement of Serious events following treatment with Pravachol was 26.4%. it was 24.3% with Lipitor. A 16%! improvement.

But Lipitor had a 3.3% occurence of liver enzymes that are precursors to liver problems. Pravachol only had a 1.1%. A 66% reduction.

Stats translated into percentages sure make things more dramatic.
