OHSU Library publishes FDA drug approval documents collection « OHSU Research News.

The OHSU Library is pleased to announce the online publication of the FDA Drug Approval Documents Collection. This collection contains review documents that led to the publication of the article “Selective publication of antidepressant trials and its influence on apparent efficacy” by OHSU’s Erick Turner, MD.

As stated in Dr. Turner’s article, “Evidence-based medicine is valuable to the extent that the evidence base is complete and unbiased. Selective publication of clinical trials–and the outcomes within those trials–can lead to unrealistic estimates of drug effectiveness and alter the apparent risk-benefit ratio.” According to ScienceWatch.com, this article was the tenth most highly cited scientific article published in 2008.
