Utilizing the results

Posted by mffreshwatermd on 05 Nov 2012 at 04:37 GMT

As a hand surgeon, I am concerned about these findings in 2/12 patients experiencing these adverse events.
1. Have the authors reported their findings to the government regulators in either the TGA in Australia or the FDA in the US, where the initial trials were done?
2. In which public database is this trial registered?
3. Based on these findings have the authors decided to stop the trial?
