Adverse event reporting in clinical trials: room for improvement.

Author information

Clinical Trials Centre, St Vincent's Hospital, Darlinghurst, NSW.


Regulatory and ethical guidelines require clinical trial sponsors to disseminate clinical trial adverse event reports to involved investigators and human research ethics committees. Compliance with these guidelines has resulted in a major administrative burden for ethics committees. This burden does not necessarily contribute to the protection of clinical trial participants. Rationalisation of the adverse event reporting might allow better use of the data and might benefit human research ethics committees.
