This web site is dedicated to:

 1) The principle of conservative interpretation of clinical trials
      where the conclusions of a study are limited to those directly
      derived from the experimental data.

2) To all the investigators performing and interpreting clinical trials
    and basic scientific research in the field of medicine. As in all 
    human endeavors, individual efforts will show imperfection. 
    Nevertheless, the cumulative effects of these efforts involving 
    the application of the scientific method continue to lead to truly 
    wondrous advances.

3) To my wife, Sally Roehm, for her patience and assistance.
