I totally agree with your comments. This seems to be the same process seen with most new discoveries. The information is very new and everyone wants to get that information on the new process or material as quickly as possible. To satisfy that desire the early users are anxious to get articles and presentations out there often regardless of appropriate study protocols for the use of the new material in order to be recognized as the first users and therefore the “experts” in the new process. And as you pointed out these flawed studies, although quickly and easily accomplished, provide either inadequate information or worse, misinformation. In the long run it seems that this delays acceptance of the new item by the more cautious as well as by regulatory agencies, requires better studies to be done that should have been done in the first place and probably damages the reputation of those who publish or present these poorly designed studies. Thank you for pointing this out but I wonder when and if we will learn that taking a little more time with well designed studies will actually get the new item in to general use faster?
