    Haven't had a chance to read this but it looks like a step in the right direction.

    Am wondering if this would help with releasing information from the PACE trial?

    Might just be about getting some reporting of results, rather than worrying too much about how/whether results are spun.

    "WHO calls for all clinical trial results to be published

    14th April 2015

    The World Health Organisation (WHO) made it unambiguously clear today that researchers have an ethical imperative to make results from all clinical trials – including past trials – publicly available. Its Statement on Public Disclosure of Clinical Trials Results:

    • says results from clinical trials should be publicly reported within 12 months of the trial’s end,
    • calls for results from previously unpublished trials to be made publicly available, and
    • calls on organisations and governments to implement measures to achieve this."

    This will never happen. The pharmaceutical industry is very powerfully and completely corrupt. They will fight against this sort of transparency tooth and nail. There's way too much money at stake for them to be honest about how useless and ineffective many of their most lucrative drugs really are...

    I'm thinking as JPV, its unlikely to happen as the drug companies carry too much power. They probably will some how end up with an opt out or something. It would be a massive change if 'WHO manages to get them all making the info easily available and public
