What means mean difference and p=?
And does it improve alogia?

Might be mean difference is average difference across sample of subjects between Min-101 and a placebo and p is the probability of that difference occurring by chance.

When you perform a hypothesis test in statistics, a p-value helps you determine the significance of your results. â€¦ The p-value is a number between 0 and 1 and interpreted in the following way: A small p-value (typically â‰¤ 0.05) indicates strong evidence against the null hypothesis, so you reject the null hypothesis.

I sort of know, but it is over 25 years since I did statistics and the tables are out of context.

So if i get it right for example they expected 0.182 change for alogia but the outcome was 0.329

Im probably wrong right?

What does this mean?

Does it mean i have 50% chance that i can take the drug because i take abilify?

I canâ€™t read that table on my phone except the title, which is (paraphrasing) drop out rates on rcts of APs. Rcts is randomized controlled trials. Itâ€™s just a chart showing the drop out rates for drug trials. It shouldnâ€™t have anything to do with whether you can take the drug or not.

Iâ€™ve seen codes for launching a nuclear weapon which look easier to understand.

Placebo is a neutral tablet. On it,71% of 155 participants dropped out versus 51% of 155 participants on Abilify. Regarding the first table, 64 mg of Min-101 is significantly better than placebo for most problems including alogia.
