    I’d be curious to hear each of your ttghouhs on the utility of the results data posted on ClinicalTrials.gov. My work with that particular slice of the data has been cursory at best, but I found it nearly impossible to run any sort of cross study analysis for the reasons you mention on study design variability, etc. It would seem this is not so much the fault of the NLM as it is simply a product of the complexity of the data.What sorts of questions do you think are reasonable to expect to be able to answer from cross study analyses (assuming some attainable level of data standards/meta data)?
