Incomplete Clinical Trial Data
January 2013, speaking as Chair of the Commons' Health Committee, on publication of report on NICE:
- We are also concerned about the evidence we have received that some of the data supplied from clinical trials has been selective and incomplete. This situation cannot be allowed to continue, and we set out a number of practical steps that could be taken now to increase transparency about the results of clinical drug trials and which would benefit everyone: patients, clinicians and the pharmaceutical industry.
