The Placebo Problem and Clinical Trials

The September 2009 issue of Wired has a nifty little article on the impact of placebo effects on pharmaceutical clinical trials and pharma company decision making: "Real. Fake. Both Can Cure Depression." by Steve Silberman.

Addendum on 28th August: As you will see from the comments, this piece is available on Wired magazine's website. You can access it here

Hi Steve.

Nifty piece. I have discussions about this quite often in my professional role in clinical trials and nice to see it presented so well in your piece.
