Worldwide availability of data

While it is important that trial data be available to international collaborators as necessary for the successful conduct of a trial, it is equally important that they are revealed only to such people and to no others. Data should only be sent to offices with adequate data protection procedures in operation.

Patient information sheets should assure patients entering trials that the confidentiality of information about them will be preserved, and that such information will be made available only to those conducting the trial and for trial purposes.
