We prespecified that noninferiority will be proven if the upper limit of the 90 percent confidence interval for the between-group difference in risk was 14 percent or much less. If noninferiority was proven, superiority testing will be performed with the use of the chi-square test or Fisher’s exact test, as appropriate.
