      Does anyone believe that the order in which a patient gets a treatment of a trial medication at a particular site influences whether they get active drug or placebo:

      say there are 2 patients taking part in the AM 101 trial at a certain site: do you think the site is instructed to use certain vials of medicine on the first patient or do you think they have a box full of AM-101 and they randomly pick out samples to give to patients

      my point being, i think that if they are instructed to use certain vials, that the first patient seen might have a higher chance of getting the drug-- thoughts?

      my point is that I would think they would't want everyone at one site to get active drug and everyone at another site to get placebo -- so what I'm saying is if you are the first text subject at a certain site you might have 3/5 chance for active drug, whereas if you were the second patient you might now only have a 2/4 chance of getting the active drug... make any sense?

      it's an independant company doing the tracking so the doctor and the patient don"t have any clue about it.
