(University of California – San Francisco) UC San Francisco researchers have created a proof-of-concept method for ensuring the integrity of clinical trials data with blockchain. The system creates an immutable audit trail that makes it easy to spot any tampering with results — such as making the treatment look more effective or diminishing side effects. The research will be published Feb. 22 in Nature Communications.
