    When I read this earlier today I was thinking that these kinds of comments are a good sign. When a great many medical professionals finally grasp what is going on there could be a large push for change.

    That is a very clear and to-the-point summary of all the fundamental flaws of the PACE trial.

    I like the way this article criticizes the Cochrane review of PACE as well:
    The Cochrane review conflicts of interest in particular relate to the role of Dr Lillebeth Larun, which Prof James Coyne details in these blog articles.



    By the way, the link to the shortened article in Swedish does not work (404 error), but this link does:
