Charles Piller’s reporting found that researchers at leading medical institutions had routinely disregarded a law requiring public reporting of study results to the federal government’s database, thereby depriving patients and doctors of information that would help them better compare the effectiveness and side effects of treatments for diseases such as advanced breast cancer. Natalia Bronshtein provided data visualizations to help readers better understand the scope of the problem.
