Keeping Tabs on Drugs

Sen Chuck Grassley (R-IA) plans a bill next year requiring pharmaceutical companies to register their drug trials and report their results in a public database. Sen Grassley has been critical of drug companies he believes have hidden bad results of their drug tests. Democrats have several versions of the same idea. But having a senior Republican leading the charge may mean a better chance of a database bill passing the GOP dominated Congress. (NYT)
