It’s time all clinical trial results are reported. Patients, researchers, pharmacists, doctors and regulators everywhere will benefit from publication of clinical trial results. Wherever you are in the world please sign the petition:
Thousands of clinical trials have not reported their results; some have not even been registered.
Information on what was done and what was found in these trials could be lost forever to doctors and researchers, leading to bad treatment decisions, missed opportunities for good medicine, and trials being repeated.
All trials past and present should be registered, and the full methods and the results reported.
We call on governments, regulators and research bodies to implement measures to achieve this.

What is a Fully Registered Unit? In order to obtain Full Registration status, Clinical Trials Units were required to demonstrate:
- A track record and experience of coordinating multi-centre randomised controlled trials or other well-designed studies.
- Presence of a core team of expert staff to develop studies.
- Presence of robust quality assurance systems and processes to meet appropriate regulations and legislation.
- Evidence of longer-term viability of capacity for trials coordination and the development/maintenance of a trials portfolio.
A CTU may also be awarded provisional status - evaluation criteria for Provisional Registration were developed for Units that did not meet the criteria for Full Registration status, but that are working towards possessing sufficient expertise to enable Full Registration in the future. A full list of Registered Units (both provisionally and fully registered) can be found at www.ukcrc-ctu.org.uk
