This is a good move. However, as we outlined in http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23159359 an essential componant of clinical data transparency is that the molecular structure of the trial compounds should be available in public databases. This should be made conditional for publishing results. The benifits for open data mining are obvious.
