A registry for clinical trials has been initiated by the ICMR’s National Institute of Medical Statistics (NIMS) and will involve registration of all clinical trials conducted in India so that the information collected are useful to health researchers, academicians, pharmaceutical industries and common man.
The proposed solution was to setup a registration portal for consolidating the data pertaining to clinical trials conducted by various agencies. The registry will be able to accept information over the Internet from accredited registrants and provide this information to any person desirous of obtaining information with respect to clinical trials. Upon enhancing the pilot project it will be able to play the full-fledged role of a primary registry under ICTRP. The ultimate goal of the registry is to develop an electronically searchable web-based system that is accessible to the public free of cost.
