Clinical Trials Registry Expands

JAMA. 2009;302(1):22. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.891

A major expansion of public access to data from clinical trials is under way, as portions of a 2007 law are phased in.

The Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act required all nonpilot clinical trials of drugs, biologics, or devices regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be registered at clinicaltrials.gov. Also, starting in September 2008, basic results from trials involving FDA-approved products were to be posted on the Web site.
