    Before the study is made public, one should have asked the principle investigation authorities to answer few question which are missing in the study and like all Indian researches created doubt. # how many deaths occurred while under trail. # how many drop outs in the study for want of any factor. # does doctors were not using these drugs before the magic pill. # any cross check of subjects studied for their reliability – does they in actual exists. # How much money paid to the subjects who offered their living body to trail. # any amount insured for donating living body for study and does that amount paid to dead if any. # Why the public institutions are less in number to private institutions offering study. The data is missing from the tables of the published study and enforce any researcher to think a hypothetical study.
