AARP (formally the American Association of Retired Persons) joins AllTrials. With close to 38 million members, this is a fantastic addition to the global call for clinical trial transparency.
AARP recognizes the importance of clinical trial transparency and supports the AllTrials campaign, which calls for the registration of all clinical trials and the publication of their full methods and results. Greater clinical trial transparency will help accelerate scientific progress and also improve healthcare delivery.
April Clyburne-Sherin, AllTrials USA Campaign Manager:
Around half of all clinical trial results go unreported, preventing doctors and patients from having access to all the information they need in order to make the best choices for their health. By joining the AllTrials movement for clinical trial transparency, AARP continues a nearly six decades-long fight for improved healthcare and quality of life for millions of Americans.
