Researchers Test Blockchain for Clinical Trails’ Data Integrity

Source: Thinkstock – Researchers at University of California San Francisco (UCSF) have developed a proof-of-concept method for using blockchain to safeguard data integrity of clinical trials. Blockchain creates an audit trail that makes it easy to detect tampering with results, such as making the treatment look more effective than it is or diminishing the impace of side effects.
