Replication of headline results for Cardiff Universitys summary posting performance

A replication conducted by TranspariMED on 26 June 2017 during 17:00-17:30 UK time returned


identical headline figures for total Cardiff trials, and for trials without results, across EudraCT and
ClinicalTrials.gov.

Review of Cardiff Universitys ISRCTN entries

In addition, TranspariMED manually reviewed 63 Cardiff entries that are listed as having been
completed prior to 30 June 2017. Out of these entries, 25 have not posted results. (One trial whose
results were only reported in the form of a poster was counted among those lacking results.) Note
that the table below lists all entries; however, some entries on ISRCTN concern studies that are not
clinical trials.

Note that results posting rates on ISRCTN are far higher than those found in the other two main
registries. This appears to be due to ISRCTN proactively searching for, and uploading links to,
academic journal articles that report on the results of trials listed on the registry. Thus, a higher rate
of trials with results available on ISRCTN should not be understood to demonstrate that trial
sponsors and/or researchers perform better at managing their data on this particular registry.

*Trial ISRCTN31546330, highlighted in yellow, is listed above as not having posted results on
ISRTCN. This appears to be the same trial as trial 2007-007615-82, which is the only Cardiff
trial to have posted results on EudraCT, and NCT01090466, which has not posted results on
Clinicaltrials.gov. Please see TranspariMEDs study for a detailed discussion of this trial.
