BMJ: Trials that say “maybe”: the disconnect between exploratory and confirmatory testing after drug approval

bmj.com/content/360/bmj.k959

@bgcarlisle hi I am a migraine patient treated nearly exclusively with off label drugs for 25 years and it was TERRIBLE. Lots of really awful and sometimes life threatening side effects and doctors acting like it was my fault the drugs only made me feel worse. And then actual research and Cochrane reviews showing SHAM ACUPUNCTURE worked better than some of the drugs they tried. Thank you so much for your research. So necessary.

A Mastodon instance for academics

Scholar Social is meant for: researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @socrates@scholar.social and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
