Researchers, funders, and patients will soon be able to find out which clinical trials are being held in China and India, the World Health Organization announced last week.
Both countries, which are rapidly becoming key players in medical research, have joined the international network of government backed clinical trial registers, coordinated by WHO.
The network aims to boost accountability and transparency for global health research and to improve the quality of data.
