” South Africans participating in clinical trials should demand that results are published ” says Cochrane Collaboration founder Sir Iain Chalmers.
” Much of the world’s clinical research was wasteful and failed to tackle issues that were most important to patients ” Sir Iain told delegates at a conference hosted by the Medical Research Council (MRC).
” Worse still, only 50% of the research was published, which meant doctors and patients were left in the dark about possible side effects, concealing evidence of potential possible harm from doctors and patients alike ” he said.
