All Trials

Clinical trials are used to test new and existing treatments. Sometimes the results (the overall picture of the treatment’s effects) are not published - which means that other medical researchers and doctors cannot use them. If you would like to change this situation to the ultimate benefit of patients, please sign the AllTrials petition.
