Society is increasingly expecting data transparency in many aspects of life, including clinical data. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has set a timeframe for lay summaries of trials to be published, while FDA has expressed concerns about inappropriate promotional practices if data are shared with the trial patients prior to FDA review/approval. No clear guidelines or processes established on how to share results back to the trial patients themselves. At the same time, some ethics review boards are expecting individual data results back to the patient, which is a whole different level of data specificity.

Learning Objectives

Discuss the legislations changes that are expected and the impact if there are differences between regulatory agencies; Discuss the mechanisms or barriers for dissemination of individual research results and/or clinical trial lay summaries.
