For the NNTRMST, the average life gain per patient is the area between the survival curves, which is the instrinsic treatment benefit in survival time during the tperiod followup. For the NNTKM, the average life gain per patient is defined as the ratio between the average survival time of one death in patients and the NNTKM up to t.
