Description In 1994, Douglas Graham Altman, one of the greatest statisticians of all time, wrote "We need less research, better research, and research done for good reasons". Twenty-seven years ago, Altman pointed out that the system favored unscientific behavior and that "bad science" was easy to publish, highlighting the financial implications of this amount of poorly designed research, with erroneous statistical methods, unrepresentative samples, or fraud. The covid-19 pandemic has once again put clinical research in check. The pressure for urgent responses was unprecedented. Knowledge of the origin of the virus, the transmission dynamics, the pathophysiology of the disease, efficient pharmacological and non-pharmacological measures would be counted in lives - and economies, and in governments.
Em 1994, Douglas Graham Altman, um dos maiores estatísticos de todos os tempos, escreveu: "Nós precisamos de menos pesquisa, de pesquisas melhores e pesquisas feitas por boas razões". Há 27 anos, Altman apontava que o sistema favorecia condutas anticientíficas e que "ciência ruim" era fácil de publicar, ressaltando a implicação financeira dessa quantidade de pesquisas mal delineadas, com métodos estatísticos equivocados, amostras não representativas ou fraude. A pandemia da covid-19, mais uma vez, colocou a pesquisa clínica em xeque. A pressão por respostas urgentes foi inédita. O conhecimento da origem do vírus, da dinâmica de transmissão, da fisiopatologia da doença, de medidas farmacológicas e não farmacológicas eficientes seria contabilizado em vidas - e em economias e em governos.
