ABSTRACT
The author supports the 2010 update of the CONSORT statement. The statement, issued in 1996, offered suggestions for the publication of randomized controlled clinical trials, the standard to assess healthcare interventions. The findings of a comparative study by S. Hopewell and colleagues are analyzed by the author. However, the author observes that although the updated statement is clear, better endorsement and adherence to the CONSORT statement is not achieved.
