Episode 241: Industry and us

In episode 241, Mike and James decide to delve into the impact industry marketing has on how and why we prescribe. We start off by discussing the theoretical issues surrounding the marketing of medications and briefly touch on the ethical dilemmas. At the end we realize we really haven’t discussed any evidence other than our own personal opinion and so we make a pact to discuss the evidence around this area in the next podcast.

Episode 239: Erecting the evidence around testosterone replacement in men

In episode 239, James, Mike and Adrienne get down and personal with the evidence around testosterone replacement. We find out very quickly that the data suffers from inconsistent results, small sample size, poor method description, lack of validated/useful endpoints, funding bias, and multiple outcome reporting – but other than that it is solid and all the answers are clear.
