    [This is not about ME/CFS specifically. It is about "reporting bias" where people may not get to know the correct results of trials for one reason or another e.g. the trial was never published, what was published was misleading or harms were hidden, etc. They give lots and lots of examples of this which might be of interest to people. Note this is different to a previous paper I highlighted which talked about types of bias http://forums.aboutmecfs.org/showth...lains)-27-types-of-publication-reporting-bias (see Tables 1 & 2 in that). People may have particular type(s) of drugs or illness they are interested in so could just look at those sections. People could skip the paper if they wanted and go straight to the list: http://bit.ly/eDSA2a i.e. http://www.trialsjournal.com/content/supplementary/1745-6215-11-37-s1.doc . A lay journalist of course would probably make the items more readable. There are probably lay articles with more details out on the internet if people wanted more details on any one example. No questions to me please!]
