The editorial of Markku Kaste on Stroke September 14th.

From funny experiments to other initiatives publication bias is a big problem  for modern research. Researchers publish only favorable results, and it can have far-reaching consequences.

Pharmaceutical companies, for example, are notorious for manipulating the data in this way, potentially very dangerous when the lives of patients are at risk.

When a medical company has spent tens or hundreds of millions of dollars on research, it is tempting to bury any results that support the null hypothesis.

Unfortunately, pharmaceutical companies are businesses, attempting to maximize profits, and there is always the temptation to promote products, even when they have been shown to be ineffective or even potentially harmful.

World Stroke Day is an excellent opportunity to increase awareness of stroke, and action that can be taken against it. Activities to promote the World Stroke Day message may include campaigns for the general population, press releases, communication with government and/or community activities.

The World Stroke Day Awards recognize the efforts of people in the community, health professionals and workplaces that encourage, support, and promote awareness of stroke and action that may be taken against it.
