Autistica, a UK charity that has raised over £8.5 million in support of autism research has pledged its support for trials transparency by joining AllTrials and adopting the principles of the campaign as part of its grant awards process.
On joining the campaign, Autistica said:
“Autistica is a vital bridge between a diverse autism community and medical researchers. This is why we understand that it is crucial to clearly communicate trial results to our community and build confidence in autism research. We expect all trials funded by Autistica to be registered and reported, and will include this as a requirement in all grant awards from now on.
Autistica is committed to making our science accessible to the autism community. This is why we circulate lay summaries of the findings of our funded studies as widely as possible and why we actively encourage our researchers to do the same”
Autistica fund medical research to understand the causes of, improve diagnosis and develop treatments for Autism. Read their full statement on Autistica.org.uk
