Update from AllTrials Campaign
Posted on: December 21 2013, 04:32 pm

Dear Friends

There is exciting news today from Europe as law that would ensure researchers running clinical trials in Europe register them and publish summary results moves a step closer. Representatives from every EU member state government have agreed with the draft Clinical Trials Regulation - read more of the details and what members of AllTrials said here. This agreement now has to be formally ratified by the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers (probably in early 2014) but today's provisional agreement is a fantastic result at a very important stage of negotiations. It is down to the hard work of the MEPs, especially Glenis Willmott, and thanks to so many of you telling your MEPs and Ministers this year why clinical trial reporting is important to you.

In other recent news the two pharmaceutical companies who brought court cases against the European Medicines Agency have been asked to provide proof of the serious and irreparable harm the release of clinical trial information will cause; the UK General Medical Council said that withholding trial results is research misconduct; and with your help we have raised enough money to start making a campaign video which we hope to launch in January.

In January the AllTrials campaign will be one year old. The progress in Europe today and the movement toward transparency by some companies and many medical and professional bodies over the last year is very encouraging. Now is the time for all other companies and bodies to respond to the growing clamour of voices and commit to registering and reporting results from trials done in the past too. We will be asking for your help in the New Year to ensure this happens.

Best wishes and season's greetings
