Best Rebuttal to the Klempner Study

From an unassailable source…

It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.

Dr. Marcia Angell, The New York Review of Books, Volume 56, Number 1. January 15, 2009 Drug Companies & Doctors: A Story of Corruption.  (Dr. Angell resigned as editor-in-chief of The New England Journal of Medicine in June, 2000. The Klempner study of a Lyme disease treatment was published in June, 2001.)

Klempner joined the editorial board of The New England Journal of Medicine after Dr. Angell resigned. You can read our evaluation of Klempner’s study here.
