Welcome to my blog: Chaos Theory and Human Pharmacology

Welcome to this blog dedicated to the study of complex relationships in human pharmacology.

I would like to start this blog sharing the following infographics: over 50% of US phase 3 clinical trials are unpublished.

US phase 3 unpublished trials.010

Ask yourself: what is the real strength of evidence provided by the results of clinical trials?

I don’t have a detailed plan for future postings, I cannot predict the unpredictable, I only promise that this blog will be chaotic…
