AllTrials Campaign

The British Science Association is pleased to announce our support for the AllTrials campaign for full and open reporting of medical trials. The campaign is calling for the full reporting of all clinical trials in the last twenty years, including all results and trial methods.

We work for better engagement between science and society, and believe that transparency and openness are important for public trust in science. The extra information will help patients, researchers and medical professionals make fully informed decisions about their lives and work. Modern medicine is grounded in the results of these trials, so it is vital that all of the results are available for public scrutiny.

The AllTrials campaign aims to draw attention to the fact that clinical trials that fail to detect any benefit are reported far less often than those which do, leaving us with a skewed image of how well many medical treatments work. The AllTrials campaign is the next step in medical transparency, and you can find out more at the campaign website.
