Hi nobody,

» Any thoughts on this approach?

What a load of absolute nonsense.

And it is of a dangerous kind because it:

1. Misleads the guys with spreadsheets into cheaper but seemingly better studies.
2. Increases the likelihood of failure.
= it increases the risk of futile exposure of volunteers.

I am serious, this is deeply problematic cf. e.g. the Helsinki Declaration and the general GCP principles. This is much worse than the recent Midichloria case.
Check the reference list in that publication for a good laugh, by the way.
