Promoting Transparency in Preclinical Research

The UMCU, Radboud UMC and the NL-HI have been developing an online platform for the registration of animal studies. This platform was launched on April 11th during the scientific session “Promoting transparency in preclinical research” hosted by the NLHI. By sharing protocols of (mainly confirmatory) animal studies, we aim to increase the transparency and quality of preclinical research and at the same time lower reporting and publication bias.

By sharing protocols of (mainly confirmatory) animal studies, we aim to increase the transparency and quality of preclinical research and at the same time lower reporting and publication bias.

Last Tuesday (3rdof July) a motion was submitted to the parliament by Tjeerd de Groot (D66) that stated that all animal studies (and results) should be registered. This motion was unanimously accepted. Today (4thof July) several newspapers (https://www.ad.nl/binnenland/dierproef-rammelt-aan-alle-kanten~a059ef33/)have written about the motion and the online platform www.preclinicaltrials.eu.

This week we will also talk with prof.dr.G. Schonfelder (Center for the protection of Laboratory Animals (Bf3R), Germany) about possibilities of implementing this platform in Germany.
