Sources of Error and Bias
Adverse reaction to the drug; we could monitor the patients for these reactions, and if so, remove them from the sample. Interactions of other medications; we could record the other medications each patient is on and observe any trends among the commonly used drugs to see if they have any effect on the drug. The patients may pass before the trial period ends; this cannot be controlled but they must be removed from the sample.
