Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, corporate member of Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) is one of the largest university hospitals in Europe. All of our clinical care, research and teaching is delivered by physicians and researchers of the highest international standard. Charité gratefully welcomes the AllTrials initiative and petition.  As researchers and practitioners of medical science we know both sides of developing treatments and applying them. To truly assess the risks and benefits of a proposed way of treatment, we need all the information we can get. The AllTrials initiative reaches out across borders and institutions and can provide improved transparency in medical science and may be a tool to provide better and more effective treatment to patients. It is in line with the Charité’s philosophy and we are happy to join.
