    Interesting and perhaps relevant given Ampligen (and perhaps Rituximab) possibilities as expensive drugs and it also includes calls for full data from drug companies regarding esp. clinical trials:

    This latter aspect - the call for detailed publication of all drug trials (and not simply those that support the drug) - is something that Bed Goldacre was trying to encourage (amongst others). It's something that the Government are keen to see happen too now I believe.

    No no no, making people post the full data is "harassment" according to Esther Crawley.
