Wow that was scalding. I agree there is a conflict of interrest, journals should not publish results of clinical trials only analyses. Results should be in a public database."Examples of Methods for Pharmaceutical Companies to Get the Results They Want from Clinical Trials * Conduct a trial of your drug against a treatment known to be inferior. * Trial your drugs against too low a dose of a competitor drug. * Conduct a trial of your drug against too high a dose of a competitor drug (making your drug seem less toxic). * Conduct trials that are too small to show differences from competitor drugs. * Use multiple endpoints in the trial and select for publication those that give favourable results. * Do multicentre trials and select for publication results from centres that are favourable. * Conduct subgroup analyses and select for publication those that are favourable. * Present results that are most likely to impress—for example, reduction in relative rather than absolute risk.
