We are pleased to inform our readers that the journal has recently published five high quality Randomized Controlled Trials and an exceptional Meta-Analysis in June 2018. Readers, clinicians, and medical scholars are duly invited to read our latest Clinical Trials and share their findings with other clinicians and researchers.

Clinical trials, Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses, are among the most rigorous types of medical research and the highest quality of publication. The main reason is that Randomized Controlled Trials can trigger potential improvements in health and treatment policies. The Systematic-Review and Meta-Analyses are also able to directly convert the findings of Clinical Trials and other Observational Studies into useful segments of recommendations for clinicians and health policy makers.

Here, we introduce a sample of three papers we have recently published in June 2018. 

In a randomized double-blind controlled clinical trial in Urmia University of Medical Sciences, the authors compared the effects of pretreatment intravenous fentanyl or intravenous lidocaine on suppression of fentanyl-induced cough in children. This RCT study has been conducted in 2017, and reviewed by four experts before accepting for publication. Click here to read this article.
