This belief has its own invigorating effect; if the compound is indeed beneficial, then the actual benefit can be amplified by the patient’s conviction that she is improving. , just like placebo), then this positive belief system can produce its own salubrious effect; an effect that would be mistakenly attributed to the ineffective product. The influence of these belief systems is strong; if left unchecked, their presence will blur the investigator’s view of the therapy’s true effect. In order to counterbalance the influence of these belief systems, investigators instituted singleblind trials in which patients were not informed of their therapy assignment.

The underlying motivations for the wholesale embrace of hypothesis testing and the p-value have been discussed by Goodman [21]. His work reveals that, shortly after the development of the p-value, complicated sociologic and scientific groups consisting of government regulators, journal editors, medical researchers, and medical academicians discovered that they shared the common desire for an objective measure of a research effort’s results. Their interactions led to the identification of the p-value as an easily computed mathematical entity that seemed devoid of investigator subjectivity.
