Commentary We are often asked to conduct an emergent analysis for an abstract under the premise that it will be done right for the paper. Moreover, the data are often incomplete or not query-free at abstract time but is it ok because it is just an abstract? We recently completed a study looking at integrity of authorship related to abstracts and I came across this paper that really hit home the importance of not succumbing to investigator will just to get an abstract out there. The sheer magnitude of impact of a single abstract presentation on treatment patterns prior to peer reviewed publication and FDA review of data suggests providers will change practice based on abstract evidence alone. Looking further through the literature, we found this was not a one-off event. Particularly in developing countries that cannot afford full access to medical journals, abstract presentations drive the evolution of clinical care. We, as a profession, have a duty to ensure that abstract analyses are as well conducted abstracts as for the paper.
