Clinical Trial Results Reporting

In early November 2016, Ben Goldacre and Anna Powell-Smith launched the TrialsTracker website.  This website analyzes data from  ClinicalTrials.gov to determine which studies appear to be missing clinical trial results.

TrialsTracker is currently focused on sponsors with more than 30 trials, assessing the results disclosure status for interventional phase 2, 3, or 4 trials registered on ClinicalTrials.gov that were completed between 2006 and 2014 (24 months prior to the current date).  The expectation on the TrialsTracker site is that study results are available within two years of study completion on ClincialTrials.gov or that a published article can be found on PubMed referencing the ClinicalTrials.gov issued identification called an NCT ID, unless a formal request to delay results has been submitted to ClinicalTrials.gov.
