Led by Reps. Louise slaughter (D-N.Y.), Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) and  Lois Capps (D-Calif.), 22 u.s. House Democrats have written to National  Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins to complain that while  ClinicalTrials.gov, “the nation’s primary resource for information on  publicly and privately supported clinical trials,” provides demographic  data for select completed trials, it “does not allow for all studies to be  analyzed by sex or other demographic data.”  They note that Congress has  required that women and minorities be included in NIH-funded clinical  trials “in a manner sufficient to elicit information about individuals of both  sexes/genders and diverse racial and ethnic groups and, particularly in  NIH-defined Phase III clinical trials, to examine differential effects on such  groups.” See Rep. Louise Slaughter News Release, June 18, 2014.
