Italian term or phrase: in doppio cieco
la gestione del singlolo caso particolarmente difficile spesso risente pi favorevolmente di un approccio empirico basato su tentativi ed errori che non sull'applicazione cieca dei risultati di rigorosi studi in doppio cieco.

double-blind
Explanation:
Here are a few citations showing how the phrase is used in English:

http://skepdic.com/control.html

“A double-blind test is a control group test where neither the evaluator nor the subject knows which items are controls.”


http://www.jnj.com/news_finance/204.htm

“This is the first double-blind study to show positive results for an Alzheimer's treatment in all three types of disability commonly associated with the disorder.”


http://www.ntis.gov/fcpc/cpn7657.htm

“The AIDS Clinical Trials Group Study 051 is a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled Phase III study for children (ages 3 months through 12 years) with AIDS or advanced ARC.”


I hope these are sufficient.

double-blind studies


Explanation:
Mi permetto di dissentire con la collega: qualche mese fa ho chiesto aiuto per tradurre dall'inglese all'italiano "double-bind study" = studio in doppio cieco.
Da allora in poi ho visto il termine ricorrere innumerevoli volte in articoli medici americani.
Double-blinded sarebbe inoltre "doppio accecato" e non un calco dell'italiano.
