“AllTrials is now supported by over 50,000 individuals, GSK, almost all the professional academic and medical bodies, and over 100 patient groups, representing more than a million people in total.”
“Medtronic and Yale open data project”-All Trials:
19th June 2013
“US company Medtronic has just heard the results from its groundbreaking project on clinical trial transparency. Two years ago Medtronic gave all the clinical trial data it has for one of its back surgery products to researchers at Yale University. The Yale experts commissioned two groups of researchers at Oregon Health & Science University in the US and the University of York in the UK to conduct separate systematic analyses of the data. The groups have just reported the results which show that Medtronic’s product is no more effective than the older technique it was meant to replace and it increased the occurrence of some side effects.”
I’m certain there will be other medical devices that will reveal some very interesting data.
