    Wow! Thanks @ Dolphin, James Coyne and those who produced the revised Helsinki declaration.


    That would wipe out almost all of the CFS literature if applied retrospectively. Hopefully it will improve things going forward.

    Such as the recovery rates in the PACE Trial as originally defined? :)

    Although on second reading, this probably means a record of the original protocol, not an analysis of the data.
