Drug companies named and shamed
Drug companies and other sponsors who fail to report results from clinical trials within 13 months of completion will be named and shamed on a new website.
The brainchild of a team from the University of Oxford, the website was launched after the available evidence showed trial results are routinely withheld and that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is failing to sanction non-compliant organisations.
The designers note that previous laws and guidelines aiming to fix this issue have been widely ignored.
Outraged by this “scandal”
