It is the policy of the State of West Virginia that any hospital, including university affiliated hospitals, research facilities or other similar institutions, or entities required to be licensed under this article and conducting clinical trials shall disclose to the public the results of any clinical trial conducted within three months of the conclusion of the clinical trial.
A hospital or university institutional review board may not approve clinical trials unless the results are made available to physicians and the public as herein provided.



NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to
require hospitals to disclose the results of clinical trials to physicians and the public.

This section is new; therefore, strike-throughs and underscoring have been omitted.
