Why All These Abstract Abstracts?
As many readers have noted, abstracts of scientific and medical journal articles tend to be abstract. Often they offer a tantalizing lack of detail. Also, the language that researchers 'speak' can be hard for lay readers to interpret.
Still, most of the doctors we met at the I.A.C.F.S. conference last week assured us our archive is their "go-to" site for the latest FM research. So we feel the job of seeking out these abstracts is worth the effort.
This week, for example, a number of new abstracts report on non-drug research. In line with that, the studies we've included in Clinical Trial News are focused on recruiting for investigations involving natural or 'alternative' health support strategies. The term 'alternative' is often used to refer to approaches that may complement or avoid the use of pharmaceutical drugs. Keep checking our site for the latest research news.
