This week’s Editor’s Choice, ‘Colorectal cancer: a cautionary tale’, flags up a report of a trial that was stopped early in 1993 and was never published (Fiona Godlee, BMJ 2014;348:g3311). The report, by Tom Treasure and colleagues,comes as part of the ‘restoring invisible and abandoned trials’ (RIAT) initiative. The authors explain ‘what its abandonment meant for the way clinical practice developed in the intervening years, and what its restored findings mean today’ with regard to the AllTrials campaign that ‘all trials should be registered and all results reported’ (alltrials.net).
