February 2019: What’s New on ClinicalTrials.gov

  • Help Us Enhance Our Content: We want to provide easy-to-understand information that helps our website visitors identify important considerations about taking part in clinical studies. To do this, we have launched a survey to help us better understand what our visitors want to know about clinical studies and research participation. We are specifically looking to enhance our Learn About Clinical Studies page, and the survey is also available there. This project is being done with Health Literacy Media (HLM), a Missouri-based nonprofit organization with health literacy expertise. We will update the What’s New page when we make changes to our content. If you choose to participate in this survey, thank you!
  • Study Records Now Link to RoPR: Some patient registries that are registered in ClinicalTrials.gov may also be available with additional information in the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Registry of Patient Registries (RoPR). When available, ClinicalTrials.gov patient registry study records now include a link to their RoPR record, shown as a resource link provided by the National Library of Medicine.
  • Study Document Details Added to XML: Study record XML now includes information about any study documents (study protocol, statistical analysis plan, and informed consent form) that have been added to a record. See the XML schema for more details.
