Extract

Growing awareness of selective publication of research studies (“publication bias”) and the selective reporting of outcomes in publications (“outcome reporting bias”),1 has led policymakers to call for increased “clinical trial transparency” through the public disclosure of key information about clinical trials.2 A US federal law3 enacted in 2007 mandates registration and results reporting for certain clinical trials of drugs, biological products, and devices, regardless of study funding source, at ClinicalTrials.gov, an online registry and results database operated by the National Library of Medicine of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
