Five new articles were published this week in PLoS Medicine, including two Perspectives, providing an expert’s view on research articles.

A prospective evaluation of the effectiveness of the WHO-recommended standardized retreatment regimen for tuberculosis by Edward Jones-López and colleagues reveals an unacceptable proportion of unsuccessful outcomes. An accompanying Perspective by Jerome Singh discusses the ethical issues that the study raises.

Adriane Fugh-Berman and colleagues analyzed a selection of published opinion pieces on hormone therapy and show that there may be a connection between receiving industry funding for speaking, consulting, or research and the tone of such opinion pieces.

Cecile Janssens and colleagues present the GRIPS Statement, a checklist to help improve the reporting of genetic risk prediction studies.

K. Srinath Reddy discusses last week’s research study by S. V. Subramanian and colleagues that found no strong evidence of recent economic growth in India being associated with a reduction in child undernutrition.
