An AllTrials report for the [UK] House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee this week has found that 33 NHS trust sponsors and six UK universities are reporting none of their clinical trial results, while others have gone from 0% to 100% following an announcement from the Select Committee in January that universities and NHS trusts with missing trials had 6 months to correct it.

Under UK law, as in other countries, all clinical trial results must be reported within one year. Unreported trials compromise patient safety, waste resources, abuse the trust of trial participants and result in an inaccurate benchmark for new treatments. This applies regardless of whether the clinical trial was successful or not.

The chair of the Select Committee, Norman Lamb MP and Sense about Science – which runs the global AllTrials campaign – wrote to all trusts and universities in January to urge them to rectify missing trials within 6 months.
