Authored by LRG Data Analyst Jerry Call

It's time to rethink Placebos in Advanced GISTIn this issue of LRG Science: based on current studies, this article asserts the belief that placebos do not benefit patients with advanced disease. The article illustrates the effect of placebos in trials and appeals to stakeholders to begin discussing alternatives and changes in order to save lives by extending the time on treatment instead of using placebos in advanced trials.
