Analysis / Bias
In review, Medical Xpress is a health and medical news source that also publishes articles about the recent development in the health care industry and research in medical science. Medical Xpress republishes News and research articles from other sources such as University studies, press releases, and organizations. Articles are low biased and usually pro-science such as this article republished from the American Heart Association: Aerobic exercise programs may improve endurance, walking after stroke. Further, because Medical Xpress publishes from a wide range of journals and sources, they sometimes publish studies that may lack peer review or contradict the current consensus. This does not mean they are inaccurate, but rather just new studies that will require more testing and peer review.
Overall, we rate Medical Xpress, a generally credible Pro-Science source that occasionally publishes new studies outside of the current consensus of science for that field. (D. Van Zandt 8/24/2016) Updated (7/24/2021)
