By the end of 2014, BioMed Central and other publishers alerted the international Committee on Publication Ethics to new types of systematic attempts to manipulate journals’ peer-review processes.Enrollment was followed by a placebo run-in amount of 56 to 84 times to recognize and exclude participants who were regarded as unlikely to follow study procedures. Subsequent randomization by the coordinating center was performed with the use of computer-generated random quantities with permuted blocks and stratification according to clinical middle, sex, anticipated colonoscopic examination at 3 years or 5 years, and complete factorial or two-group randomization. All study personnel were unaware of the treatment assignments, with the exception of the data analyst and statistician, a few of the programmers, and pharmacy employees.
