Dear All,

We were recently asked by an anonymous reviewer to
include a power analysis on a manuscript submitted to
a prominent medical journal. I always understood that
such power analyses were not recommended (i.e. you
should not do them) but I am not sure why. Can anyone
please cast some light on this issue?

Thank you,
Ricardo.
