The First Ever Clinical Trial (possibly)
What was the first clinical trial?
Don't bother looking in the lancet, or even the BMJ. The first clinical trial is found in the old testament of the bible.
Daniel 1: 1-16
Go read it (the bible is that dusty one with the dull cover propping up the leg of the wobbly table).
Mind you, i suspect Simon* would have some words about the methodology, no random group selection, sample size, no statistical analysis...
But still. Its there. How'dya like THAT mr Kippen?!
*i mean simon spooner, not simon peter before anyone asks.
