DCGI order makes 100 more entries into Trial Registry in one month

The directive by the DCGI to get all new clinical trials registered with the Clinical Trial Registry-India (CTRI) as a pre-requisite for obtaining permission has made a notable impact. Around 100 trials were registered during last one month alone after it was made compulsory from June 15 by the CDSCO, the sources said.

As many as 342 trials have been registered in the site so far. Interestingly, the total number of trials registered from July 2007, when it was launched by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), to December 2007 was just 11. During 2008, the number went upto 137, still far from the desired level given the size of the clinical trials going on in the country.

From January 2009 to July 16, the total number of trials registered was 194. Interestingly, around 100 of them came during the last one month alone, indicating a reasonable compliance to the DCGI directive aiming at streamlining the trial sector in the country, sources in the ICMR said.
