Trials of autologous bone marrow stem cells for heart disease

The report by Nowbar and colleagues (doi:10.1136/bmj.g2688) on the relation between the number of discrepancies observed in clinical trials of autologous bone marrow stem cells for ischaemic heart disease and ejection fraction includes shambolic and poorly conducted research that reflects poorly on every part of the research process.1 On average, trials with many errors show improved ejection fraction, while trials with no errors find no benefit. How should we react to this finding and what lessons can we learn? In An Essay on Criticism, Alexander Pope stated that “to err is human,” but surely there is no place for errors in development of evidence that will inform treatment decisions?2

This report describes how six trusts have been grappling with the productivity challenge. It also suggests ways to divert the NHS and social care from their current trajectory, which is heading towards a major crisis.The unprecedented slowdown in the growth of NHS funding in England since 2010 required the NHS to pursue the most ambitious programme of productivity improvement since its foundation. It has broadly risen to the challenge, with pay restraint, cuts in central budgets, and the abolition of some tiers of management producing significant savings. But the strongest pressure has been applied and felt at the front line, by hospitals and other local service providers, faced with squeezing more and more value from every health care pound.
