We are moving to our new home. The new software also reflects a complete overhaul of the registration processes in IRCT. We apologise for any possible disruptions and inconveniences caused during the migration period.

Welcome to Iranian Registry of Clinical Trials. This is a Primary Registry in the WHO Registry Network set up with the help from the Ministry of Health and Medical Education (MOHME) and hosted by Iran University of Medical Sciences (IUMS).

The three main objectives of this site are:
Informing public of the ongoing trials
Increasing public awareness of their importance
Implementing the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors initiative for mandatory registration of trials before the enrollment of the first patient.

           What is a Clinical Trials ?

According to the international committee of medical journal Editors (ICMJE) any research study that prospectively assigns human participants or groups of humans to one or more health-related interventions to evaluate the effects on health outcomes.

Interventions include but are not restricted to drugs, cells and other biological products, surgical procedures, radiologic procedures, devices, behavioural treatments, process-of-care changes, preventive care, etc.
