- delaying the publication of studies that had found no evidence the drug worked for some other disorders
- “spinning” negative data to place it in a more positive light
- bundling negative findings with positive studies to neutralize the results
- preheating oven to 400 degrees and baking for 40 minutes or until crust is brown
Here is the bottom line: of the 21 studies on Neurontin, five were positive and 16 were negative. Of the five positive studies, four were published in full journal articles, yet only six of the negative studies were published. This is why the public doesn't trust big Pharma. I remember being detailed on this drug and for the record rarely if ever used it. This information now reinforces my own need to be more critical in my use of any new drug that is being marketed. I owe that to my patients.
