This commitment is recognition that access to information in clinical study reports and patient level datasets may provide important opportunities to conduct future research that can help advance medical science or patient care.
The ABPI has been actively involved in accelerating the pace of improvements in clinical trial transparency by running and participating in workshops with healthcare stakeholders and launching a clinical trial disclosure toolkit to assist companies. In addition, the ABPI will undertake monitoring of compliance with the existing transparency requirements of the ABPI Code of Practice for medicines approved since 2012.
As part of a global industry, we are actively engaging with our European and international counterparts to input into on-going discussions around clinical trial transparency, and we look forward to continuing to contribute to this important area.
