What kind of drugs are these?

Logic Level 2

Two new drugs AntiCynicismia and AntiMisantropia are currently in a clinical trial phase, where the pharmacists determine whether the drugs are safe to use. The trial was divided into five distinct groups and the results of the experiment are as follows:

Drug nameAntiCynicismiaAntiMisantropia
Group A436 out of 545 people were cured, or 80% success rate9 out of 10 people were cured, or 90% success rate
Group B245 out of 350 people were cured, or 70% success rate16 out of 20 people were cured, or 80% success rate
Group C48 out of 80 people were cured, or 60% success rate21 out of 30 people were cured, or 70% success rate
Group D10 out of 20 people were cured, or 50% success rate180 out of 300 people were cured, or 60% success rate
Group E2 out of 5 people were cured, or 40% success rate320 out of 640 people were cured, or 50% success rate

It may seem like AntiMisantropia is a more effective drug based on the success rates on different groups. However, this is not true!

Given that \(x\%\) is the difference in success rates between these two drugs, find the value of \(x\).
