    Looks like this is from the same issue of JAMA. The Journal of the American Medical Association is a pretty prestigious journal (impact factor 30) so it throwing its weight behind open data and re-analysis is intriguing.

    Thirty-five percent of published reanalyses led to changes in findings that implied conclusions different from those of the original article about the types and number of patients who should be treated.
