Changes: if you say “were faster” at the end of the sentence then you need to compare it to what they “were faster than”, at the moment, the above sentence is not complete.
Ascribed seems to be too high of a register for this document, not many medical articles use the word “ascribed”.
GOOD WORK!!!!
