In addition, like cohort studies, they are limited by the possibility of differences in unidentified risk factors between the groups. Cohort and case-control studies can also be used to assess potentially beneficial associations, as was done in studies that suggested a cardiovascular benefit of hormone replacement therapy. However, this benefit was not demonstrated when studied in an RCT (10), calling the purported benefit into question and highlighting the limitations of observational data.

In addition to reporting the statistical significance of findings (the probability that the findings are true), did the study discuss or clarify the clinical significance of the findings (whether the benefits were clinically meaningful)? As the size of a study increases, there is an increased likelihood that clinically small or nonmeaningful benefits, which are nonetheless statistically significant, will be demonstrated. Moreover, one must pay close attention to the followup of the subjects enrolled in trials; intention-to-treat analysis is a strategy for analyzing data in which all study participants are analyzed in the group to which they were assigned, regardless of whether they dropped out, were noncompliant, or crossed over to another treatment or nontreatment group.
