Aberdeen University to launch investigation after report uncovers clinical trial failures


ABERDEEN University has launched a probe following claims it failed to follow international ethical guidelines in its clinical trials. External researchers found failures including failing to register trials, withholding the results and abandoning tests without revealing the reasons, contrary to the Helsinki declaration. The Declaration, which aims to benefit doctors and patients, also insists that “negative and inconclusive” results must be published, rather than just the positive data.
