Disclosure of Clinical Study Data
Registration of Clinical Study Information and Disclosure of Clinical Study Results and Clinical Study Data
Sumitomo Pharma Co., Ltd. believes that it should appropriately disclose to relevant parties, including healthcare providers, patients and researchers, information about and results of clinical studies (clinical trials) sponsored by Sumitomo Pharma, with the aim of providing greater transparency of such clinical study data and realizing the full value thereof for contributing to scientific advancement, promotion of innovation, and enhancement of public health. Based on this recognition, we consistently register information on clinical studies and appropriately disclose study results in compliance with relevant laws, regulatory requirements, and industry guidelines for each country. In addition to these measures, in April 2018, we began providing access to our clinical study data via the data disclosure portal site clinicalstudydatarequest.com. Through defined processes using this portal site, researchers from outside of the company can access and analyze the clinical study data, which has been anonymized to protect personal information in accordance with relevant laws and regulations.
Registration of Clinical Study Information and Publication of Summaries of Study Results
Sumitomo Pharma registers and discloses information about clinical studies that it sponsors, and the summarized results thereof, in the following clinical trial information registration databases, which are publicly accessible.
|U.S. National Library of Medicine Clinical Trials Database|
|EU Clinical Trials (EudraCT database)|
|Japan Registry of Clinical Trials (jRCT)|
Sumitomo Pharma believes it is important to share clinical trial results with trial participants and the public. Therefore, as part of our ongoing commitment to publicly share clinical study results, Sumitomo Pharma will develop plain language summaries for interventional clinical trials conducted in patients. A plain language summary is an overview of the main results from a clinical study. It is written in non-scientific terms so that it can be understood by most people from a variety of different backgrounds and experiences. Individual information is not shown, and individual participants cannot be identified.
These plain language summaries will be made available at www.trialsummaries.com
Publication of Clinical Study Results
Sumitomo Pharma seeks to have results from all phase 3 clinical studies and any clinical study results of significant medical importance on its sponsored studies presented and published, regardless of study or trial outcomes, at scientific meeting and in peer-reviewed journals.
Sharing Clinical Study Data with Researchers
In response to requests from researchers, Sumitomo Pharma may allow access to clinical study data provided that such requests have been reviewed and approved by an independent review panel of experts. Before patient-level data on a clinical study is provided to any researcher, such data will be anonymized to protect the personal information of participants in the clinical study concerned, in compliance with relevant laws and regulations.
