WHO seeking comments: Public Disclosure of Clinical Trial Results (until 15 Nov 2014)

This was linked to from an AllTrials.net mailing-list email:



When researchers embark on a clinical trial, they make a commitment to conduct the trial and to report the findings in accordance with basic ethical principles. This includes preserving the accuracy of the results and making both positive and negative results publicly available. However, a significant proportion of healthcare research remains unpublished and, even when it is published, some researchers do not make all of their results available. Selective reporting, regardless of the reason for it, leads to an incomplete and potentially biased view of the trial and its results.
Concerns have been raised that there may be selective publication of trials dependent on their results, with particular concern that trial results which may be viewed as “negative”, are less likely to be submitted, or accepted, for publication in the scientific literature or made public in other ways.
This a more advanced 'Call to Action' post, but for those sufficiently versed in statistics, medical science or another related discipline, there may be some scope for addressing concerns about the three 'Clinical trials' which inform the present campaign of circumcision-as-HIV-preventative, and other circumcision 'research'.

We have some threads over at F-R.net tagged Africa (particularly Kenya, South Africa and Uganda, where the above mentioned trials were conducted), clinical trials, ethics, informed consent and W.H.O, which might be a good starting point for readers interested in researching and drafting a submission.

Thank you for this. I believe that the results of all those "studies" are highly suspect.
