Databases Containing Information on Clinical Trials


Clinical trials are a key part of the process of developing new drugs and medical therapies and evaluating existing treatments. Before initiating clinical trials, scientists and physicians must have access to a wide range of information about existing studies, results, protocols, and results of previous trials. Therefore, there are many databases that collect this valuable information, making it easier to access and facilitate clinical trials. Below are some key databases where you can find information on this topic.

  1. ClinicalTrials.gov: This is the most well-known and widely used database containing information about clinical trials around the world. Managed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States, ClinicalTrials.gov provides access to registrations and results of clinical trials conducted around the world. Here you can find information about the study objectives, methodology, results and patient recruitment status.

  2. European Register of Clinical Trials (EudraCT): This register is managed by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and contains information about clinical trials conducted in European Union member states and other countries. EudraCT contains information on clinical trials of medicinal products.

  3. World Health Organization (WHO) International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) : ICTRP is a platform run by WHO that aggregates data from various clinical trial registries around the world. This enables global access to information on clinical trials, which is extremely important in the context of international trials.

  4. PubMed: PubMed is a general database of scientific publications from various fields of medicine. Here you can find scientific articles that refer to the results of clinical trials, as well as links to register these trials in other databases.

  5. Other local and specialized databases: Depending on the area of clinical research, There are also local and specialist databases that may contain valuable information. Examples include the National Cancer Institute's Cancer Trials Support Unit (CTSU) for cancer research and the National Institute on Aging's Alzheimer's Disease Education and Referral (ADEAR) Center for Alzheimer's disease research. In Poland, there is also a public database of clinical trials in Polish run by the association of pharmaceutical companies INFARMA

Access to information about clinical trials is crucial to the progress of medicine and the provision of the best possible treatments to patients. The databases mentioned above are just some of the many sources available to help researchers, physicians, and patients track and understand clinical trial results and make informed health care decisions. Regardless of your area of interest, there are tools that make it easier to access the latest data in the field of clinical trials.
