The journal “Electronic Physician” is proud to present another set of high quality research for Clinicians / Practitioners, PhD Scholars, and Health Policy Makers. In our most recent issue (June 2018), we have published a combination of different types of medical research including five Randomized Controlled Trials, a Meta-Analysis, and several cross-sectional research.

In July 2018, by publishing six Randomized Controlled trials (RCT) we have good news for those readers who look for new RCTs, and for those public health policy makers and researchers who follow the educational experiments with impact on public health. In other good news, one of our July papers reports on the procedures of designing and validating an instrument.

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

In a randomized, triple-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial, a team of MD-PhD scholars from the School of Persian and Complementary Medicine  (Mashhad, Iran), examined the effect of Pistacia atlantica kurdica gum on diabetic gastroparesis symptoms. According to them, daily consumption of Pistacia atlantica gum for one month improves diabetic gastroparesis symptoms. This RCT study has been conducted in 2016-2017, and reviewed by five experts before accepting for publication.
