Positivity is worth more than its weight in gold when it comes to trial results supporting a particular drug. But what happened to all the negative trials – that were started but never reported. Do we get to know that they exist in the first place?

The Guardian has an article by Ben Goldacre called ‘Drug trial secrecy leaves us dependent on blind faith‘  which is a reminder of the less than transparent world of pharmaceuticals that we live in today.
