As scrutiny into clinical trial disclosure intensifies, a new analysis finds that a number of leading U.S.  universities and hospitals are still failing to report clinical trial results to a federal database.

The findings reflect little change from a previous report issued last fall that examined the extent to which clinical trial sponsors report study results to the database, according to the TranspariMed advocacy group, which ran the analysis. A few sponsors improved. The University of Florida reported results for 10 trials, for instance, but several of the worst violators did not make any progress.


Leading the list was the University of Virginia, which failed to report results for 28 trials, according to TranspariMed. Others with consistently poor track records included Massachusetts General Hospital with 17 unreported trials and the Henry Ford Health System, which failed to report 15 trial results. Cutera, a device maker, still did not report any trial results and was the only sponsor not to do so.
