Dr. Nardo,

Thanks for the comment. I'm writing a follow-up with more analysis, that we will post soon.

Keep following!

John M. Nardo MD

I appreciate Collins' response, but as you are quoted on Pharmalot, it doesn't go far enough. It's not the pay to authors that matters, it's their other benefits. In reviewing the whole lot of AstraZeneca/Seroquel published Clinical Trials, I'm convinced that they were written by contract writers at Parexel [acknowledged as writing support]. of particular interest is an interchange with Dr. Nassir Ghaemi in 2004, summarized here. This ghost is bigger than just a writer, a better term would be ghost-research. Keep up your very important work!
