Clinical trials are key to advancing evidence-based medical research, one of the pillars of the evidence-based medicine widely used to treat patient. While regulation is needed to ensure the conduct of clinical trials in compliance with ethical standards, with clear scientific proof and benefit overweigh risk to protect patient, fake trials and (subsequent) wrong publications can lead to wrong or ineffective or harmful molecules being brought in the market, hence have an impact on patient health. A literature review has been performed to identify situations where omitted data, altered data, manufactured data, misinterpretation of data and provision of wrong information were reported; solutions to address these situations have been also sought.
