Really interesting blog post by science based medicine. Is not really about vaccines, but given how much talk goes on around here about clinical trials, funding, etc, I thought some of y'all might be interesting.

That's really interesting. Thanks for pointing it out. It is amazing that there has been no requirement to make the data public from these sorts of medical trials. In many areas of science we are in the middle of a push for open data to aid reproducibility. It would seem to me that medical trials are the place where this is most important and I hope that happens soon.
