This analysis investigated whether children with centralized precocious puberty (CPP) who are exposed to leuprolide acetate are at higher risk for fractures compared to children who are unexposed to leuprolide acetate (served as controls) in the Sentinel Distributed Database (SDD).
This is a follow-up analysis to evaluate the impact of alternative analytic strategies, including fixed ratio matching and multiple factor-stratified analysis, on the distribution of follow-up time and fracture incidence among children exposed to leuprolide acetate and their controls. Compared to the original study that allowed for matched sets of varying sizes, this analysis incorporates two different analytic designs: 1) conditioning the analysis on matched sets of equal sizes, and 2) conditioning on the matching factors themselves. This analysis contains four reports:
- Report 1: This report contains results of the main analysis for female patients.
- Report 2: This report contains results of the main analysis for male patients.
- Report 3: This report contains results of the sensitivity analysis for female patients, which includes additional censoring criteria.
- Report 4: This report contains results of the sensitivity analysis for male patients, which includes additional censoring criteria.
These reports contain data from January 1, 2000 to August 31, 2018 from 13 Data Partners contributing to the SDD. This request was distributed to Data Partners on June 17, 2021.
