3 The Problem  Information on the method used in the trial to assign participants to comparison groups was reported only in 34% of 616 studies in 2006 (BMJ 2010;340:c723. ).  Only 53% of trial reports in 2006 defined a primary end point.  Only 45%of the trials explained sample size calculation.

4 The Implications  Trials with inadequate methods are associated with bias especially exaggerated treatment effects.  Biased results from poorly designed and reported trials can mislead decision making in healthcare at all levels. (treating patients to national policies).  Hence the whole of medicine depends on the transparent reporting of clinical trials and other research.
