Drug companies and other organisations that carry out clinical trials are violating their ethical obligation to the people who take part by failing to publish the results, scientists will argue on Wednesday.

Almost one in three (29%) large clinical trials in the United States remain unpublished five years after they are finished, according to scientists writing in the British Medical Journal. Of those, 78% have no results at all in the public domain.

The scientists calculate about 250,000 people took part in the unpublished trials and have therefore been exposed to all the risks involved in research without the benefits to society they were led to believe would ensue. This "violates an ethical obligation that investigators have towards study participants", say Christopher Jones from the Department of Emergency Medicine, Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, New Jersey, and colleagues. They call for additional safeguards "to ensure timely public dissemination of trial data."

It has not gone unnoticed that the illnesses for which proposed definitions have been expanded are mainly those that are treatable by drugs — antipsychotics or antidepressants, for which manufacturers seek increased marketing opportunities — while the contractions tend to be in conditions for which no specific medication is available.

“Sev­eral bib­li­cal verses ref­er­ence self-mutila­t­ion as metaphoric acts of sac­ri­fice or con­tri­tion,” wrote the re­search­ers, who in­clud­ed psy­chi­a­trist Ja­son P. Ca­plan of St. Joseph’s and the Creighton Uni­vers­ity School of Med­i­cine in Oma­ha, Neb. “Some in­di­vid­u­als may in­ter­pret these pas­sages lit­er­ally and act on them, caus­ing sig­nif­i­cant in­ju­ry and even in­ad­vert­ent death.”

Undergoing four such operations was widely seen as the upper safety limit. Symphysiotomy, in contrast, was viewed as a gateway to childbearing without limitation.

A bite from the lone star tick, so-called for the white spot on its back, looks innocent enough. But University of Virginia researchers say saliva that sneaks into the tiny wound may trigger an allergic reaction to meat -- agonizing enough to convert lifelong carnivores into wary vegetarians.

in the three remaining countries where polio is endemic (meaning it’s occurring without spreading from somewhere else) the number of cases have actually gone up. And the polio eradication effort, run by Rotary International, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, and the United Nations, is short $945 million, a funding gap of 50%, because governments are giving less money due to tough economic times.
