abstract

  • Much has been written regarding the recently discontinued Thiazolidinedione Intervention with Vitamin D Evaluation (TIDE) trial (ClinicalTrials.gov NCT00879970; Diabetologia 55: 36-45) and a variety of opinions have been advanced regarding its purpose, context and design (N Engl J Med 397: 959-964). As such, we deemed it appropriate to clarify TIDE's objectives, research questions and design and the clinical equipoise regarding its research questions.
