The evolution of opinion as to how to analyse the AB/BA cross-over trials is described by examining the recommendations of three key papers. The impact of these papers on the medical literature is analysed by looking at citation rates as a function of various factors. It is concluded that amongst practitioners there is a highly imperfect appreciation of the issues raised by the possibility of carryover.
