Clinical Trial Participants

Recently, we discovered that some national clinical trials were not reporting lab results for participants living in Texas.  This was specifically an issue with clinical trials that process lab results (CD4's and VL) in house rather than sending the labs to a reference laboratory.  We contacted the clinical trial companies but did not successfully convince them that they needed to report lab results.  Have other states found this to be an issue?  Have other states had success in getting lab reports?

In NYS IRB approved clinical trials are exempted from public health reporting -- inclusive of lab reporting. This is a know, but not well quantified, gap in our laboratory reporting. Even if you are able to convince labs to report, they may not be able to report patient identifying information as many research protocols involve providing to the testing lab only coded names (i.e., the study ID).
