    I saw James C.Coyne@CoyneoftheRealm highlight this.

    It has no direct mention of ME/CFS, but a few of us (e.g. who followed the PACE Trial closely) are interested in publication bias

    Didn't Goldacre have a book on this published in February or something?

    He wrote "Bad Pharma": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bad_Pharma which would cover some of the same areas all right.

    The Bad Pharma book covers these sorts of problems from pharmaceutical companies. He so far seems less concerned about cognitive/behavioural interventions.

    Yet the book should cover psychiatric drugs if its going to cover pharma. I was planning on ordering it sometime.

    Yeah - it does cover psychiatric drugs. Sorry, I'd just edited my post as I realised I'd not been clear.

    David Healy, who seems to have been got at for being too critical of psychiatric medication in the past, is critical of Goldacre for giving pharmaceutical companies a too easy ride, and of the All Trials campaign.

    "...based on the original study protocol."

    Who does that though? Things are normally changed at least a little bit, it is just that the reinterpretation in the PACE trial was so far from reasonable, that it should be considered a joke.
