Incomplete data

Hi all,

i noticed that quite a few data points are missing in the informa dataset, particularly the reason for termination/outcome of the trial. For some of them there is actually information available in (one example would be NCT00040443). For this trial it also seems that endyear differs between informa and clinicaltrials (2004 vs 2005) and clinicaltrials only lists study centers in the US while the informa dataset lists [Sweden|United States|Belgium|France|United Kingdom|Netherlands].

So I was wondering (1) if there is a chance to get a more complete dataset rather than parsing clinicaltrials myself and (2) where the discrepancies come from. Are we doing something wrong?
