Case Study Provided A reviewer is assessing a manuscript regarding the use of a hypertension agent that reports some dramatic results.
The results clearly support the use of the agent and indicate better blood pressure control compared to the use of another agent.
The reviewer is on the speaker bureau for the company with the comparison agent, and is aware of some of the confounders in the analyses that were not considered as not published with articles of the second agent.
Revealing these issues would create a revised manuscript with less dramatic findings in the comparison.
