HOUSTON, June 30 -- Treatments for atrial fibrillation, localized prostate cancer, and low back pain should be among the government's top effectiveness research priorities, while smoking cessation, migraine, and osteoarthritis are much father down on the list, according to a new report.
This sounds rather like "research about
research." They're not advocating spending money on finding new cures, as far as I can tell, but rather spending money on deciding where to spend money on cures.
But I guess that's not all bad.
