Database Provides Access to Clinical Study Information

NOVEMBER 01, 2004

The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) recently established a database (www.clinicalstudyresults.org) to better communicate the results of clinical studies of marketed drugs. The on-line database has results of all controlled clinical trials, both positive and negative, since October 2002 for PhRMA-member-company drug products approved in the United States. The database allows PhRMA member companies to post information about their completed clinical trials, providing physicians, patients, and others with a central location to search for and review the information.

Visitors to the Web site will find the information presented in a standard format that includes the sponsoring company's name, the proprietary and generic names of the drug, a link or reference to the FDA-approved drug label, and the studied indication or disease.
