"Searching clinical trial data may soon get easier thanks to open data technology dubbed OpenTrialsFDA.
The project is one of six finalists for the Open Science Prize, a competition to create open data technology that will advance biomedical research. The Open Science Prize is a collaborative effort between the Wellcome Trust, the National Institutes of Health and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
With OpenTrialsFDA, researchers can more easily search data in the Federal Drug Administration’s drug approval packages (DAPs), which contain detailed information about the methods and results of clinical trials, some of which has never been published."
