The article presents information on the requirement of prospective registration in clinical trials and the reporting of results in public accessible databases. A focus is on the need of such registration during preclinical studies and supporting trials as the rate of failure in research of medical therapies is increasing concerns based on human protections. The need of iterative refinement in the implementation of such registries is also discussed.
