Research Management & Clinical Trials

A clinical trial is an investigator- or sponsor-initiated study using a study drug or study device on a human subject.

Registering a Clinical Trial

PIs of government-funded clinical studies are encouraged to register their studies with the service In September 2004, the members of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) implemented a requirement that PIs or other responsible parties register their clinical trials with this NIH system as a prerequisite for publication of research findings.

The goal of the registry is to foster a comprehensive, publicly available database of clinical trials. The registry also provides a mechanism to thank clinical trial participants and to let them know that the information that accrues from these studies is part of the public record, where it is available to guide decisions about patient care.
