Why the so many significant results are ignored by the scientific comunity?

What 'significant results' would they be then?

The answer that: because the results can`t be reprodused is not a good answer (I think) because there are not only 10-20 researches with positive results.

If results can't be produced, there's no reason to assume it's a viable theory. If you do enough 'experiments' you'll always get 'positive results'. You need to be able to reproduce the results to show they're not merely the result of cognitive bias or plain old cheating. If you can't - it's a fail.

So, what is the answer? Are scientists close-minded and they are simply ignoring the results? Or there are much more negative results?

Why would scientists ignore anything? If there was reproducible evidence for ESP, a scientist would have been polishing his Nobel by now.
