Reverse pacebo effect in clinical trials

I'm just curious to see if NOT delivering any pill (pretending that the drug is not yet available) might have a positive effect comparable to giving a fake pill (placebo effect), in clinical trials - or to boost ROI for health insurance companies, by pretending that the drug will be available only in several weeks. And from an experimental design point of view, how do you perform such a test - no pill vs. placebo vs. real pill, to see what works best, based on medical issue, patient and drug?…See More

"I did run a global optimiatiom model on my data, but not with a computer, mostly with my brain instead. That's the take away of this story - you can do great optimiation with little (or no) data, if you have vision and data/business acumen."

Hello Vincent, 

Thanks for the connection. I would like to ask you a question, when I joined here my BIO states (To understand the building blocks based on natural data transfer.) it's very good I like that, but could you tell me how my BIO was achieved? Was it (A) human input or (B) machine?
