2020 Submission: Topic 5: Health Strategy

Posted by Dave Bath on 2008-04-11

Another chunk of my 2020 gabfest submissions, to Topic 5 (Health Strategy).  Other submissions and discussion via the 2020 Gabfest category filter

A: Supporting an international registry of all pharmaceutical trials

More efficient and efficacious delivery of the most suitable medication is currently prevented worldwide because of poor governance of data relating to the results from clinical trials.

Often, companies hide unfavorable results, while publishing numerous papers from favorable results. Some experts have advocated that all drug research is registered beforehand, and publications are linked to the registry, allowing better assessment of both published and unpublished results, and thus more appropriate supply of drugs to patients.
