The Cochrane Collaboration is a major supporter of the AllTrials Campaign for open access to clinical trial data, and there have been key developments in this initiative, worldwide. In 2010 the European Medicines Agency (EMA) began releasing patient-level data from clinical trials used to approve new medicines in Europe. The EMA set a transparency deadline of 1 January 2014, but its process has been shut down due to a lawsuit by two American drug companies: AbbVie and InterMune.
The Canadian Cochrane Centre and the Université Laval Faculty of Medicine invites members of the media to attend the 21st Cochrane Colloquium. The event will be held from September 20 to 23 at the Québec City Convention Centre . . .
