Table 1 provides a description of the background data but includes p-values. These do, however, measure the inferential uncertainty vis-à-vis specific hypothesis. They cannot be interpreted as indicators of practical importance or scientific relevance and are not useful for identifying confounders. Please explain the purpose of the presentation.
Table 1 presents p-values from tests of baseline imbalance after randomisation. Such p-values are generally considered misleading and the CONSORT Statement guidelines recommends not presenting them, see also Roberts C, Torgerson DJ.
