Topic: Where can people find out about clinical trials?
People can find information about clinical trials now being conducted now by searching clinicaltrials.gov2. ClinicalTrials.gov is an interactive online database, managed by the National Library of Medicine. It provides information about both federally and privately supported clinical research in human volunteers. ClinicalTrials.gov is updated regularly and offers information on each trial's purpose, who is eligible to participate, locations, and phone numbers to call for more information.
Since ClinicalTrials.gov is only available online, individuals without Internet access can use the database at the public library or other publicly available internet portal.
