I am interested in publications where patients were treated with some 
medication for a particular disease eg. paracetamol for pain. I am 
interested in the following reserach design. All patients received the same 
medication, but one part of the patients was treated in a positive 
atmosphere (for example a high expectation about the drugs' efficacy was 
expressed by the treating physician) and the other half of the patients 
was treated in a neutral atmosphere. Preferably randomised studies.
