Abstract:
Standard of reporting of statistics in clinical trials published in Indian medical journals generally low. A growing body of literature points to persistent statistical errors, flaws and deficiencies in clinical trials published in most of the medical journals published in India. In this study, we present a short review of few frequently observed statistical errors in clinical trials published in Indian Medical Journals. Seven potential statistical errors and shortcomings, differentiated for the distinct phases of medical research are presented and discussed. Statisticians should be included in early phase of study design, as mistakes at this point can have major impact, negatively affecting all subsequent stages of medical research. Consideration of issues discussed in this short review, when planning, conducting and preparing medical research manuscripts, should help further enhance statistical quality in clinical trials published in Indian medical journals.
