Clinical trials database will save researchers time and resources

The National Institute for Health Research’s Innovation Observatory (NIHRIO), based at Newcastle University, has launched a comprehensive database of clinical trials as well as FDA-approved medical devices, diagnostics and digital applications.

Designed as a free resource, researchers can access information about what research is in progress in their area of interest, and what new medicines are on the horizon.

By drawing the data from so many sources into one place, there is no need for users to repeat searches on multiple registries or check for duplicate trials, which should result in considerable time savings for researchers.

Professor Dawn Craig, Director of the NIHR Innovation Observatory said: “Health research has never been more prominent, important or widespread. So what better time to launch a highly innovative and dynamic one-stop-shop for global medical innovation that will prove invaluable to researchers and patients alike by providing a single access point to a world of intelligence.”
