Note: The "Late Breaker" on p. 275 of the text (about hormone replacement therapy) was intended to give more complete information about the most recent developments on the topic of HRT at the time of publication of the book. Although this example appears in the chapter on cohort studies (Chapter 8), it should be noted that the results reprinted from the National Institutes of Health website are derived from a clinical trial.
