NIAID Launches Online Database for Global Clinical Researchers
NIAID has launched the ClinRegs website, a public online database of country-specific regulatory information on clinical research. ClinRegs is designed to allow researchers to plan international clinical trials more efficiently by consolidating regulatory requirements in one place and enabling comparisons across countries.
By providing up-to-date, well-organized regulatory information for multiple countries, ClinRegs serves as a central resource and a potential time-saver for people involved in planning and implementing international clinical research.
Topic areas covered on the website include clinical trial lifecycle, competent authority oversight, ethical review, informed consent, investigational products, specimens, and sponsorship.
