This article asks the question: how do we achieve fair trade in the sharing of clinical data?
We aimed to make individual patient data from the International Stroke Trial (IST), available for public use, to facilitate the planning of future trials and to permit additional secondary analyses.
This article argues against selective publication and for a clear view of the totality of evidence relevant to many research questions and clinical decisions.
Policies that promote transparency in the clinical trial research process, through improved and expanded disclosure of investigator contributions and funding, comprehensive publicly available trial registration, and independent analysis of clinical trial data analysis may address these subversive practices by improving accountability among industry and investigators.
Lack of access to detailed information about clinical trials can undermine the integrity of medical knowledge.
This study looks at the sharing of data between researchers; it details concerns about speed of reply, and highlights an unfortunate situation where researchers are more concerned with losing an advantage than advancing science.
This article investigate clinical trialists’ opinions and experiences of sharing of clinical trial data with investigators who are not directly collaborating with the research team.
