Clinical trials

The PLoS Medicine blog has a very interesting brief piece ("Quackbusters") that links to more information about key issues related to the role of the clinical trial and clinical trial registries as one potential solution to address publication bias.

(there's also a great discussion of why there need to be therapeutic trials specifically in children if we're to understand how to treat pediatric conditions, i.e. they can't be treated as if they're just miniature adults - related to a new WHO initiative "Make medicines child sized")
