International Clinical Trials Day on May 20th

Today (May 20th)  is International Clinical Trials Day. Watch the new campaign video. And change something.
Results from around half of all clinical trials have never been published. Information on what was found in these trials could be lost forever to doctors and researchers, leading to bad treatment decisions, missed opportunities for good medicine, and trials being repeated. The contributions of the hundreds of thousands of patients who took part in those trials remain unused and unusable.
Get 10 people to sign the AllTrials petition to make clinical trials count. Public pressure is already changing regulations and getting past trials published in some countries. You and everyone you know can join at and by sharing this video
Please share the video with your networks via Twitter (#AllTrials), Facebook, in your newsletters and blogs. Can you put it on your organisation’s website?
