Clinical Trials

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

We (the public) pay for quite a lot of clinical trials, but failures in trials aren't reported.
Information on what was done and what was found in these trials could be lost forever to doctors and researchers, leading to bad treatment decisions, missed opportunities for good medicine, and trials being repeated unnecessarily on people and animals.

All trials past and present should be registered, and the full methods and the results reported.

We call on governments, regulators and research bodies to implement measures to achieve this.

i will sign. have a pal who does clinical trials into research for c.o.p.d. has never yet been taken on for the full trial. so it would be interesting to know how many failures they have. the criteria for the trials is tough.

Thank you - I believe the 'duds' are worth as much as the 'successes'.
Seems a waste to repeat previous trials! :-S
