  • It is only an extract. The full paper may reveal information important for your treatment.
  • The study has not yet had peer review - with doctors and researchers scrutinising the study closely for mistakes and limitations after it is published in a professional journal.
  •  Your doctor may already be aware of a limitations of the findings because of their wider reading.
