The Brain Tumour Charity is pleased to be supporting the AllTrials petition. The initiative is calling for all clinical trials to be registered and data to be published.
Currently around half of all clinical trials data is not being published and some trials are not even registered. This is a problem as clinicians and regulators need the evidence from clinical trials to make informed decisions about the best treatments and also to prevent trials from being unnecessarily repeated.
Our supporters have the right to expect that the funds that they raise will benefit patients and the public. It is therefore a condition of a grant award from us that all research findings are published.
We would also encourage our supporters to sign the AllTrials petition.
