This article was originally published in SRA
The British Medical Journal has published seven research papers that provide a damning indictment of current practice in pharmaceutical clinical trial reporting1. According to an accompanying editorial by senior research fellow Richard Lehman and clinical epidemiology editor Elizabeth Loder, the articles confirm that "a large proportion of evidence from human trials is unreported, and much of what is reported is done so inadequately"2. They contend that this leads to unnecessary harm to patients and costs to health systems.
