Studies On Kids Frequently Go Unpublished, Creating Gaping Hole In Medical Literature
One reason so many studies on children aren't published may be that scientists didn't get the results they were hoping for, but experts say failed results are just as important for science.
Medical Studies Involving Children Often Go Unpublished
Many medical studies involving children never end up being put to use because scientists frequently don't publish the results of their work, according to an analysis published online Thursday. The findings raise both scientific and ethical issues regarding research on this vulnerable population. (Harris, 8/4)
Many Pediatric Clinical Trials Goes Go Unpublished Or Unfinished
Even though various federal laws were designed to promote clinical trials for testing products in children, a notable number of research is either not published or not completed, according to a new study. And the study authors say this is a problem because unpublished results violate ethical imperatives and cause medical literature to be incomplete. (Silverman, 8/4)
