State-based mandates requiring registry and reporting of clinical trials and results

Drug companies conduct clinical trials but may not release the final results to physicians and the public if the results do not reflect favorably on their product. The widely-reported problems of Vioxx and antidepressants in children are just two of several examples of this problem. Physicians and consumers deserve full and complete information about prescription drugs.
