I hope this article will prompt other researchers to reveal the situation about clinical trials and Evidence Based Medicine. Evidence must be True Evidence and not distorted. Creating confusion in this complex field of medical research will turn to be damaging to all, researchers and industry. The loss of credibilty, a logic consequence, will draw us back after having acquired important values and progress in our field. I'm just thinking now on the Users guides that JAMA's has ultimately developed on thier site as a new tool for the clinician.Few months ago I read at the National Istitute of Health (NIH) news about meetings and debates aimed to completely update the policy and rules that concern the "conflict of interest". I hope they addressed the items and demands the author report in this article. Protocols of clinical trials must be reviewed by committes to ascertain their integrity and efficiency,also the ongoing trials should be monitored externally especially by department of health committes.
Buddah's wisdom is intriguing, something similar is given by S.Paul (see Romans 12,2-NewTestament). Most of the clinical research is done in Europe and the America's whose modern culture although being laic is certainly influenced much by the christian faith. This in many passegges appeal to disciples to adhere completely to TRUTH (see Jan Huss). Overall, it is the way of individual sanctification advocated between christians that makes you really win when it appears you have lost. You may lose fame but win the TRUTH,the Holy Spirit. (Romans,12,16).
