  • Most studies which evaluated milnacipran were of short (4 to 8 weeks) duration and results were not published in full with rigorous peer review [13].
  • Most clinical studies with tacrolimus have neither been published in their entirety nor subjected to extensive peer review; there is also a paucity of published randomised investigations of tacrolimus versus cyclosporin, particularly in renal transplantation [14].
  • A system of peer review for articles and promising techniques still must be developed, but a glimpse of topics and search engines is available for comment and review on the EPA Region IV-supported website ( [15].
  • Re: "Reevaluation of the cancer potency factor of toxaphene: recommendation from a peer review" [16].
  • The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that an antitrust plaintiff does not need to prove that defendant physicians and hospitals engaged in interstate commerce in order to assert federal jurisdiction over his claim that peer review proceedings against him violated the law [17].
