Reposted…. as received from Mimi Olsson.
The failure to report clinical trial results as described in the article, “Law Ignored, Patients at Risk”, by Charles Piller (see http://bit.ly/1YtZ73y), is a very serious problem which, I am embarrassed to say, that I did not know about. The first few paragraphs immediately drew me into reading the complete article. Why are these egregious breaches of ethical behavior allowed as they can have such a profound impact on patients? The magnitude of this malfeasance by both the institutions and investigators involved should be exposed by a widely viewed and respected investigative reporting program like 60 Minutes or the PBS News Hour. This is a disgrace.

Please bring this article to attention of any and all sarcoma advocacy groups an online sarcoma support groups that you are involved with. Perhaps a petition campaign can be initiated to get the FDA to act and levy fines as it is authorized to do. Several thousand signatures on such a petition might bring visibility to this terrible situation.
