  • NOTE. The proportion of subjects in the response categories of each treatment group is shown by the number and percentage.

  • * One participant in the Pulmicort group was omitted from this analysis because not all of the baseline dysplasia sites could be graded at 6 months due to incomplete epithelium.

  • P is from a two-sample test for equality of proportions with continuity correction.
