Here is a good site for current information: http://www.placebo.ucla.edu/
Also there is frequently confusion between the effect of a placebo in control groups and the use of placebos as a treatment in and of itself.
Here is an example of the placebo effect in a control group from a study of minoxidil...
One study in healthy males aged 18–50 years with androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness) found that compared to a baseline of 103 to 106 hairs/cm2, those who applied of a 5% solution of minoxidil for 32 weeks increased their non-vellus hair counts by an average of 39 hairs/cm2, in contrast to 5 hairs/cm2 in subjects who received a placebo.
Rogaine Topical Solution 5%, at Pharmcom, 27 June 2009.
Note that the control group gained 5 hairs/cm2 just on the placebo as opposed to remaining the same or losing hair.

Anyone know if medical placebos tend work better among creationists, on average?
Placebo simply shows benefits of 'faith' in general. And what I mean by 'faith' is simply that, nothing related to religion.
