Legislation introduced in the Senate on February 28 would require researchers
to register clinical trials for prescription drugs. The Fair Access to Clinical
Trials Act of 2005 (search for S.470 at: http://thomas.loc.gov)
would maintain a clinical trial registry accessible to patients and physicians
and would create a database of trial results of all publicly and privately
funded clinical trials, regardless of outcome.
