Copy edit section "Intention to treat"[edit]

  • "have often" --> "often have" -- fix awkward word order
  • remove 16 instances of unnecessary 'the'
  • "issue" --> "issues" -- fix number agreement
  • "came up" --> "started" -- fix awkward word choice
"started" is better, but not necessarily the best alternative
  • "when...can be obtained, they cannot" --> "when...can be obtained, they cannot" -- separate conditional clause
  • "even not" --> "not even -- fix awkward word order
  • change "Two issues are involved ..." to 2 additional paragraphs following a colon
I hope I have gotten this right -- I am no expert in the field, just a native speaker w/ good grammar skills

"Intention to treat" paragraph[edit]

The "Intention to treat analysis" section should be trimmed from this article and relevant information should transferred to its own article here: Intention to treat analysis

Circular linking, "Last observation carried forward" links to itself[edit]

The section "Last observation carried forward" links to "Main article: Last observation carried forward" which leads back to the linking section here ----Bstard12 (talk) 19:49, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
