PID UK signs petition to support greater transparency of clinical trial results

The 'All Trials Registered/All Results Reported' campaign calls for all clinical trials to be registered and their methods and results reported and is supported by over 455 different organisations.

The campaign aims to address the issues that some trials are not registered and only half of all clinical trials have been published. This means information on what was done and what was found in trials might be lost forever, leading to bad treatment decisions, missed opportunities for good medicine, and trials being repeated unnecessarily.

Our statement of support reads:

'PID UK strongly support the AllTrials campaign because it will help avoid duplication of effort, add to the knowledge base and better inform treatment options, so ensuring that the invaluable contribution made by people participating in clinical trials and the benefit gained, is shared fully with society.'
