Beware the power of placebo

My favorite part of the article about Sativex below, "Three patients (11 percent) withdrew from the placebo group after experiencing adverse events they associated with treatment."

Finish the job

Attached is yet another research article about this disease which like many others is a statement of the bloody obvious - I could have written it.
