x2 Analysis of the responses of the DATTA panelists determined that the frequencies of responses (established, investigational, unacceptable, or indeterminate) differ from those expected due to chance alone (P<.001). Construction of 95% confidence intervals for the established vs the combination of investigational, unacceptable, and indeterminate categories showed a significant difference between these two groups for the safety question but not for the effectiveness question. Construction of the 90% confidence interval showed a significant difference between these two groups on the effectiveness question. Two panelists had no opinion on either the safety or the effectiveness question.
