Double-Blind Study-Where's this study happening?

Postby Gardenia » Tue Jul 19, 2011 7:31 pm

Where on this planet is a double-blinded controlled study being conducted in regards to treatment, whether this actually works, angioplasty or not? WHo where, any results yet or when will results be published? :)

Canada just announced that they are doing clinical trials.
Dr. Dake has full funding but has not started yet, I do not know what's holding things up.
Dr. Mehta and Dr. Siskin have trials, does anyone know if they're double-blind?
BNAC's trial was very small, about twenty people, with a sham component.
Dr. Zamboni has the Brave Dreams trial.

It's all coming. I keep hearing it's too early for randomized controlled trials too, because of the need to continue working out the techniques....

I would go into such a trial, having been already ballooned once. Perhaps us hard cases would provide even more believable evidence if we had symptoms that were not relieved the first time, but were the second. Or even new ones, or recurrences. Plus I think since my first procedure I am more determined to manage this thing and get good nutrition and exercise, and so there is less time pressure, or what the nay-sayers call "desperation", which would make a sham a shame.
