161. Teduglutide (Revestive) - short bowel syndrome (SBS)

outcome was the percentage of patients who achieved a response (defined as a 20% to 100% reduction from baseline in the weekly parenteral support volume) at week 20 which was maintained at week 24 and was analysed in the intention to treat population which included all randomised patients. Response was achieved by 63% (27/43) of patients in the teduglutide group and 30% (13/43) of patients in the placebo group (p=0.002). The study used a step-down testing procedure for six secondary outcomes (...) with no formal statistical testing after the first non- significant difference. Secondary outcomes included the percentage change from baseline to week 24 in parenteral support (32% versus 21% of patients in the teduglutide and placebo groups respectively, p=0.030) and the mean absolute change from baseline to week 24 in parenteral support (-4.4 litres/week [from a baseline of 12.9 litres/week] in the teduglutide group compared with -2.3 litres/week [from a baseline of 13.2 litres/week] in the placebo group

are written utilizing a standard language that indicates the strength of the recommendation. “A” recommendations indicate a test or intervention is “recommended”; “B” recom- mendations “suggest” a test or intervention and “C” recommendations indicate a test or intervention “may be considered” or “is an option.” “I” or “Insufficient Evidence” statements clearly indicate that “there is insufficient evidence to make a recommendation for or against” a test or intervention. Work group con- sensus statements (...) clearly state that “in the absence of reliable evidence, it is the work group’s opinion that” a test or intervention may be appropriate. Recommendations were developed based on a specific definition, inclusion/exclusion criteria, and the resulting literature which excluded conditions such as presence of a neurological deficit or leg pain experienced below the knee, among others. Given the exclusion criteria, these guideline rec- ommendations address a subset of low back pain care as opposed to low
