Demanding action over 4,046 missing drug trial results

Latest Alltrials article in BMJ

Dear AllTrials supporters

We've joined 17 other groups in signing this letter which has been sent today to national medicines regulators in Europe warning that hidden clinical trial results have “significant potential to harm European patients, taxpayers and public health”. 

Over four thousand drug trials run in the European Union are currently in violation of European Union transparency rules, leaving large gaps in the evidence base that often make it impossible for doctors and health agencies to precisely determine how safe and effective medicines are, slowing down medical progress and putting patients at risk. .


Read and share the full letter on the Transparimed website, or read about the letter in the BMJ.


Best wishes

Sophie Lane
