Database of Clinical Trials Launches in Beta

A new database of clinical trials has launched in beta. “OpenTrials is an open, online database of information about the world’s clinical trials funded by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation through the Center for Open Science. The project, which is designed to increase transparency and improve access to research, is directed by Dr. Ben Goldacre, an internationally known leader on clinical transparency, and is being built by Open Knowledge International. OpenTrials works like a search engine, with advanced search options for filtering results by criteria such as drug and disease area. All data and documents for each trial included are ‘threaded’ together and presented alongside each other.”
