Clinical research

We understand and support the need for increased disclosure of clinical trial data, and we continue to work with the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) on this important topic to ensure that any emerging regulations will result in benefits for everyone engaged in clinical research and patient care.

Since the publication of the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA) Joint Position on the Disclosure of Clinical Trial Information, Napp has complied with the requirements to register and publish the outcomes of all trials that we have sponsored and that have been carried out in patients. Where possible, we publish data through peer-reviewed journals, but if this is not possible, we will share the data through a clinical trials registry, such as www.clinicaltrials.gov, www.clinicaltrialsregister.eu or here on our website.

Further information on Napp sponsored studies

The studies listed below were sponsored by Napp Pharmaceuticals Limited and started and/or completed after the publication of the IFPMA Joint Position on the Disclosure of Clinical Trials; information about these trials can be accessed by clicking on the links. Please note that we are providing these links for information only; this information must not be seen as a replacement for advice from a qualified healthcare professional. If prescribing Napp’s medicines, healthcare professionals must refer to the approved Summaries of Product Characteristics and not to the information contained in these studies.
