transparency in clinical trials

It is the moral and scientific responsibility of all the stakeholders (patients, caregivers, healthcare providers, payers and regulators) involved in the conduct of clinical trials to honor the significant contributions of the clinical trial participants. One of the primary objectives of clinical trial research is to ensure the safety and well-being of the study participants, with a broader implication on sharing trial results to advance the field of medicine. Despite increasing public and regulatory pressure including a legal mandate to disclose clinical trials results, the compliance rate is still low. Some of the key reasons for this low compliance could be lack of awareness among academia, industry and journal editors of the legal responsibility to disclose clinical data, inadequate resources, funds, lack of enforcement etc.
