Description: Key messages:
• Public confidence in interventions such as vaccines relies on comprehensive, independent, and accurate assessments;
• Clinical study reports contain more information than journal publications but are harder to access;
• Only half of potentially eligible reports for a systematic review of HPV vaccines had been obtained after three years, and these were incomplete and contained redactions;
• Regulators did not have the full data and the manufacturers place restrictions on the dissemination of data;
• The process for releasing clinical study reports should be improved to make it faster and more complete
