The National Institutes of Health failed to ensure that all clinical trials funded by the agency in 2019 and 2020 met federal reporting requirements, according to an inspector general report released Tuesday.
Of the remaining 36, either conducted overseas or abroad, results were submitted late in 20 and not all in one.
The watchdog blamed the noncompliance on the NIH for not having “adequate procedures for ensuring that responsible parties submitted the results of clinical trials.”
The NIH concurred with the watchdog’s report and “described actions it has taken or plans to take to address them.”
The federal agency has a history of funding projects that do not comply with federal requirements.
In 2005, Just the News Editor-in-Chief John Solomon reported the NIH’s National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, under the direction of Dr. Anthony Fauci, failed to follow requirements during an AIDS study involving foster children.
