International medical journals amplify call for registration of drug trials

PHILADELPHIA (May 23, 2005) Editors of 11 international medical journals have repeated their call to register clinical drug trials in a public registry.

In a joint editorial, the members of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), said they will consider publishing results of clinical trials that begin enrollment on or after July 1, 2005, only if the trial has been entered in a registry that is electronically searchable and publicly accessible at no charge before the first patient is enrolled.

The journals will accept retrospective registration of trials that began enrollment before July 2005 as long as registration is complete by Sept. 13, 2005.

The editorial, "Is This Trial Fully Registered?: A Statement from the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors," will be released on www.ICMJE.org and on individual journal Web sites on May 23 at 5 p.m. EDT.

Harold Sox, MD, editor of Annals of Internal Medicine, said that the editorial amplifies the drug trial registry concept that ICMJE first put forth in a joint editorial in September 2004.

"Our first editorial was a wake-up call for researchers, trial authors and sponsors. This editorial reaffirms our intent and tells researchers what they must do to meet our requirements for editorial review and subsequent publication," Sox said.

The ICMJE editorial tells researchers that they must not leave out key information when they register a trial. Specifically, ICJME says that researchers must name the treatment in a meaningful way so that patients and others know what intervention is under study.

The editorial also advises authors not to "use meaningless phrases to describe key information."

Christine Laine, MD, senior deputy editor of Annals of Internal Medicine, said that the ICMJE has adopted the World Health Organization's minimal data set, or list of required items that each trial must include.
