Drug Studies May Be False

The prescription medications lots of people take might be depending on inaccurate and faulty studies. This idea was based on new research published within the August issue of CHEST, the peer-reviewed journal of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP). Researchers at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and the University of California discovered that 30 % of volunteer patients in a clinical drug research trial reported that they didn't take their medication despite reporting to the clinical researchers that they did. This trend raises serious questions regarding the precision of study conclusions from drug studies.

This deceptive practice called "dumping", is when individuals remove or discharge all of the medication from the dispensing canister then when it had been weighed in the next patient visit, it could claim that the individual was taking medication as instructed. Most drug usage recommendations derive from clinical trials. These kinds of trials have been previously thought to be just about the most reliable forms of research, and several practice guidelines for drug use tend to be dependant on trial results. The researchers noted that conclusions drawn from the results of clinical trials are based on the assumption that the prescribed study medication has been taken based on the study protocol. If a fairly high number of testers during these research is "dumping" the medications, the outcomes from all of this research is invalid and the medications, even though they may already be approved, may potentially be ineffective
