The story, however, is more confounded, partly due to the particular characteristics of the disease and perhaps more so due to entrenched positions of opinionated surgeons and oncologists, the very definition of equipoise. All respectable institutions, and the thought leaders in the field have made their contributions to the controversy (10,11,12,13).
[2] We look at the difference between the two treatments that we observe in the trial and ask ourselves: "What is the probability of observing a difference between the groups as large as the observed one (or larger) under the equipoise (null) hypothesis?" This probability is referred to as the 'p-value' [3] or 'the significance probability.' When this probability is sufficiently small, we are confident that the likelihood of no difference between treatments is very small and, thus, we conclude that the trial supports the alternative hypothesis (i.e., the working hypothesis that motivated the study).
For example in the FIRST trial conducted in Cape Town, deferred consent was permitted because the two resuscitation fluids studied were both already in clinical use, there was equipoise, and the study outcome was considered of sufficient benefit to society to counterpoise potential subject harm.
Duckworth translates these (rnam grangs pa / rnam grangs min pa) as "categorized" and "uncategorized." These two also correspond to post-meditative understanding and an understanding of the ultimate from the "nonconceptual state of meditative equipoise" (mnyam bzhag).

"Given the clinical equipoise that surrounds the issue, all participants and care providers were blinded to the sleep study results unless a study was identified as an urgent alert study." The researchers obtained complete data from 3,261 women in early pregnancy and from 2,511 women in midpregnancy.
"These incentives make us more competitive than Miami or Singapore, and we are a lot closer than Singapore," Baco told a group of potential tax decree recipients who are clients of the Equipoise International Fund, which provides residential & commercial mortgage loans throughout the U.S.
Selig engineered a new equipoise that would encourage the teams' competitive strivings while enhancing the essence of a sports league-competitive balance, wherein every well-run team has a regularly recurring, reasonable hope of playing in October.
It may seems that the word "balanced" in this approach means creating an equipoise in measures that are relating to the 4 perspective of BSC, but indeed as Kaplan and Norton said the majority of Balanced scorecards measures in organizations relay on financial measures (35%) yet, so the word " balanced" here creates the equipoise between:
America's Newtonian Constitution might again function according to Madisonian expectations if a provoked Congress regains its spine and self-respect, thereby returning our constitutional architecture to equipoise. But this is more to be hoped for than expected.
