To the Editor: In their Commentary, Drs Partridge and Winer1 discuss barriers to the sharing of results with patients who participate in clinical trials. In the more than 25 years I have entered patients in government-sponsored clinical trials, no principal investigator has ever forwarded me results of the clinical trials in which I entered my patients, except when I was included as an author. Participants in clinical trials do not get study results because their physicians do not receive them either.
