Nominee for 'paper of the year'
An article by Dr. Thomas A. Gaziano of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Lionel H. Opie of the University of Cape Town, and Milton C. Weinstein of the Harvard School of Public Health was among 23 original research articles nominated for "Paper of the Year 2006." Editors of the Lancet for the past three years have winnowed biomedical papers -- 700,000 in last year's case -- to pick the best medical research of the year.
The Gaziano paper was "Cardiovascular disease prevention with a multidrug regimen in the developing world: a cost-effectiveness analysis."
The winners for 2006 were trials of two rotavirus vaccines, published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
