CLINICAL TRIAL SPONSORS KEEP RESULTS SECRET AND DON’T PAY BILLIONS IN FINES
The Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health allow clinical trial sponsors to keep their results secret and escape from paying more than $10 billion dollars in fines since the law was enacted in 2007 requiring disclosure of results. Those who conduct clinical trials are required to record results within one year of trial completion on the NIH’s website ClinicalTrials.gov. Physicians and patients rely on trial results to see whether new treatments are safe and effective. Collect the $10 billion now and stop funding non-compliant trial sponsors.
