Home 9 Glossary Item 9 Anonymisation


The removal of personal data (such as names or addresses of clinical trial participants) so that people using clinical trial data cannot identify the individuals who took part. Truly anonymised data contain no information that could reasonably be used, by anyone, to identify individuals even by cross-checking the data against other sources of information.
