I came across this Eli Lilly and Company Clinical Trial Registry site quite by accident.

This December 9th story from the Indianapolis Star describes the site's development and purpose:

    Eli Lilly and Co. opened a first-of-its-kind Web site to the public Wednesday where anyone can read results of clinical trials on Lilly drugs.

    The site,, allows the public easy access to results of trials where experimental and marketed Lilly drugs were tested on human volunteers and patients, said Dr. Alan Breier, the drugmaker's chief medical officer.

    ''Lilly wants to play a leadership role as we move to greater accountability and transparency" in posting drug test results, he said at a teleconference.
