News from the US side of Clinical Trial Disclosure

Starting from January 2020, the results which are submitted to ClinicalTrials.gov will be made public within 30 days of submission.

More precisely, in case the study does not have any major issues, results will appear the same way as they currently do. In case NIH review is not completed or there are major issues, results will still be made public within 30 days along with a note to clarify NIH QC review process is not yet concluded. Hence Lay public will be able to see all the NIH review records in public domain. All these records will be available in the archival site. Last but not least, NIH will also make available a list of brief, standard QC review comments used to identify major issues.
