Question  What is the age of clinical trial data at the time of publication?

Findings  This cross-sectional analysis of clinical trials published in 2015 in 6 journals with a high impact factor found that by the time of publication, the median data age was nearly 3 years. The median publication time was more than 1.2 years, with 18.5% of trials taking 2 or more years to be published.

Meaning  Collectively, these findings suggest opportunities to adjust various processes related to clinical trials to allow dissemination of the final results in a more timely manner...."
