The ABPI has published a report of its second workshop on clinical trial transparency. The workshop explored the technical standards for data sharing for current, future and past clinical trials and was a follow up to an event held in March 2013.
The workshop, held in December, was run in partnership with the PSI (Statisticians in the Pharmaceutical Industry). It brought together speakers from industry, academia, research funders, the Cochrane Collaboration and AllTrials and a cross-section of delegates from many key organisations involved in discussions on clinical research transparency.
The report, which is available to download here, outlines the key discussion points including practical challenges to greater data sharing and how they might be addressed.
