New Maine law mandates disclosure of all drug clinical trial information
LETTER — Posted Aug. 1, 2005
Regarding "Clinical trial data: Getting the complete picture" (Editorial, June 27): In response to your editorial on clinical trial data, I just wanted to let you know that Maine just passed a bill to include all data "good and bad" for clinical trials. Maine was at the forefront of providing good data for consumers on health care outcomes. I am glad to see our state has embraced an issue that has become a national problem for those of us practicing medicine and trying to provide the best treatments available to our patients.
