Clinical trial registries: more international, converging efforts are needed.
Clinical trial registries are being increasingly acknowledged worldwide. We searched for possibly trustworthy online registries that are not already included in the International Clinical Trials Registry Platform to evaluate whether other useful tria

More efficient estimators for case-cohort studies.
The case-cohort study design, used to reduce costs in large cohort studies, is a random sample of the entire cohort, named the subcohort, augmented with subjects having the disease of interest but not in the subcohort sample. When several diseases ar

Compact Representation of Continuous Energy Surfaces for More Efficient Protein Design.
In macromolecular design, conformational energies are sensitive to small changes in atom coordinates; thus, modeling the small, continuous motions of atoms around low-energy wells confers a substantial advantage in structural accuracy. However, model

How to introduce more (or better) ethical arguments in HTA?
All evaluation exercises involve ethical values, as they require some conception of the "good life." Evaluation of health technologies is no exception. Because there is no consensus about what is a good life, we have to devise decision-making procedu

Apheresis research-more abstracts should be published as full manuscripts to provide more evidence for clinical practice guidelines.
High-quality evidence to support clinical practice is lacking in apheresis medicine compared to other therapeutic modalities. A potential source of evidence comes from the abstracts submitted to the Annual Meetings of the American Society for Apheres

Establishing community advisory boards for clinical trial research in Malawi: engendering ethical conduct in research.
In this article I deal with extending the ethical principles of research to include communities through the establishment of Community Advisory Boards (CABs). The aim of the project on which this article is based demonstrates the need for protecting
