Trials

The aim of this study was to assess the endorsement of reporting guidelines in Korean traditional medicine (TM) journals by reviewing their instructions to authors. We examined the instructions to authors in all of the TM journals published in Korea to assess the appropriate use of reporting guidelines for research studies. The randomized controlled trials (RCTs) published after 2010 in journals that endorsed reporting guidelines were obtained.

OBJECTIVE: Trace the medical-legal involvement of the 19th century clinical neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot. BACKGROUND: The two major neurologic concerns of the 1800s that involved legal questions were topics of particular academic interest to Charcot: post-traumatic neurologic syndromes and the behavioral consequences of hysteria and hypnotism. Although Charcot's medical views influenced several nonmedical fields, including art, poetry, and drama, his impact on medical-legal issues has not been examined.

Bulletin of the Indian Institute of History of Medicine (Hyderabad)

Sărangadhara was an erudite scholar who wrote the famous Sărangadharasamhita. It is the earliest Indian medical treatise to mention nădĭparĭkşa as a method of diagnosing the diseases. This classic treatise is also important for several other reasons, which can be deduced from its inclusion in the minor triad of authoritative works called Laghutrayĭ. The Samhită is designed to serve as a practitioner's handbook as the author himself states at the end of the work.

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to report exploratory findings from an attempt to quantify the quality of a sample of World Wide Web (WWW) pages relating to MMR vaccine that a typical user might locate. METHOD: Forty pages obtained from a search of the WWW using two search engines and the search expression 'mmr vaccine' were analysed using a standard proforma. The proforma looked at the information the pages contained in terms of three categories: content, authorship and aesthetics.

Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics

The first 9 years of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT) (1978-1986) were surveyed to determine concentrations of research activity, educational backgrounds of contributors, sources of funding for chiropractic science, and the volume and kinds of research in chiropractic. Most articles were authored by chiropractors but a fourth of all articles included contributors with scientific/academic doctorates. Most chiropractors were affiliated with a chiropractic college, but collaboration among chiropractic colleges was rare.

The effectiveness of spinal manipulation as a treatment for back pain remains uncertain and controversial. This is because of methodological weakness in many of the published clinical trials and also because of markedly opposing interpretations of the primary data by different reviewers. We have systematically assessed a representative sample of recent reviews on this topic. Reviews were included in the analysis if they were published between 1993 and March 2004, were listed in PubMed with an abstract and categorised as a review or meta-analysis, and were written in English.
