The article focuses on several clinical medicine studies. It mentions the CRASH-2 multicountry randomized trial which showed that early treatment with tranexamic acid greatly reduces the risk of death due to bleeding after a trauma. It presents a sham-controlled trial which revealed that anal injection of dextranomer in stabilized hyaluronic acid is effective against fecal incontinence. Furthermore, a study showed that prostate cancer screening may lead to overdetection and overtreatment.
