This trial was stopped after inclusion of 2434 patients when refecoxib was withdrawn. The patients received the active drug for a median of seven months. At a median follow-up of nearly five years, rates of recurrence (hazard ratio 0.89, 95 per cent confidence interval 0.76 to 1.04, P=0.15) and overall survival (0.97, 0.81 to 1.16, P=0.75) were similar.
