More than 700 studies comprise the CONSORT database (located on the CONSORT website), which provides the empirical evidence to underpin the CONSORT initiative.
Explicit descriptions, not ambiguity or omission, best serve the interests of all readers.

Information gleaned from these efforts provides an evidence base on which to update the CONSORT statement.
