The title of this editorial by Kenneth J Rothman and Stephen Evans (BMJ 2005;331:1350-1, 10 Dec) should have referred to “studies,” not “trials.” The authors discussed all reports containing original data, so “studies” would have been more accurate. The use of the word “trials” was the result of a late editorial intervention.
