zugunsten

1.Die Nutzen-Risiko-Abwägung zwischen den erwünschten und den unerwünschten Eigenschaften, sowie den Vor- und Nachteilen der Anwendung fällt deshalb zu Gunsten der Verwendung von Metha® aus
I know " zu Gunsten der Verwendung von Metha®" means "in favor of usage of Metha®", but when it comes to "faellt aus", i can not understand the full sentence
2.Die Rate der aseptischen Lockerungen ist signifikant unterschiedlich, zugunsten der Gruppe der Patienten unter 50 (7% vs. 6%, p=0,005)
"zugunsten der Gruppe "="in favor of the group of patients under 50 years?
then the entire sentence ist not understandable

    1) die Abwägung/Entscheidung fällt zu Gunsten von X aus = the consideration/decision favours X; the result of the consideration/decision is to favour X. Converse form: "die Abwägung/Entscheidung fällt zum Nachteil von X aus".

    2) "unterschiedlich zu Gunsten" is a rather bad way of phrasing it. From the numbers, it means that the rate of "aspetische Lockerungen" is significantly larger (well, by 1 %; I wouldn't call that significant, and the p-value seems dodgy, too ...) for the group of patients under 50 years.

    The recommended way to write it is "zu Gunsten", BTW. "Zugunsten" is alte Rechtschreibung, but still valid.
