Portal launched to aid trial data transparency

ideaPoint, Inc. has announced a new portal providing a secure system for researchers to request access to anonymized, patient-level clinical trial data provided by sponsor organizations. Sponsors who have committed to provide data through the site currently include:

  • Boehringer Ingelheim
  • GlaxoSmithKline
  • Roche
  • Sanofi
  • ViiV Healthcare

In addition to research proposals to request data from clinical trials already listed on the site (clinicalstudydatarequest.com), researchers can also submit inquiries to some study sponsors to ask about the availability of data from studies not yet listed. Following approval by the Independent Review Panel, researchers are asked to sign a Data Sharing Agreement. A summary of the requirements in this agreement and an agreement template are provided on the site.
