Find Clinical Trials - Advanced Search

Important! How to Use This Advanced Search.

General Search


 


Search Terms

Use this box to specify general search terms found anywhere in the trial record. This search field searches the ENTIRE content of the clinical trial record which will most likely return more results, but less specific.

Examples:

Diabetes
veterans affairs medical center
heart attacks

The term "Diabetes" may be listed in clinical trials that are only testing for a specific type of medicine as opposed to conducting trials specifically on the disease "Diabetes."
To pull data that is specifically for "Diabetes" you should use this keyword in the "Conditions" field.

 

Recruitment Status

Also known as Enrollment Status.

Not all clinical trials in this database are accepting new participants. If you are looking for studies that are currently recruiting participants, will be recruiting in the future, or are about drugs that are available for expanded access, select Open Studies in the recruitment menu.

If you are interested in all trials, whether they are recruiting new participants or not, leave the menu with All Studies selected.

Trials may not be recruiting because they are full, completed, or halted for various reasons. In addition, some trials have very restrictive eligibility requirements and must seek participants by invitation only. To see these studies, Select Closed Studies in the recruitment menu.

Full list of all possible recruitment status values:

Open recruitment status values:

Recruiting,
Not yet recruiting, or
Available for expanded access.

Closed recruitment status values:

Active, not recruiting,
Completed,
Terminated,
Suspended,
Withdrawn,
Enrolling by invitation,
Temporarily not available for expanded access,
No longer available for expanded access, or
Approved for marketing.

Values are color coded (as shown) in the search results.


Search by Condition or Intervention

 


Conditions

Conditions usually refer to a disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury. In JoinClinicalTrials.com, conditions include any health issue worth studying, such as lifespan, quality of life, health risks, etc.

Use this box to specify the conditions being studied.

Examples:

lupus
heart attack
leukemia
risk factors for breast cancer

 


Interventions

Interventions refer to the drug, vaccine, procedure, device, or other potential treatment being studied. Interventions can also include less intrusive possibilities such as surveys, education, and interviews.

Use this box to specify drugs, devices, procedures, or vaccines used in a trial.

Examples:

cyclosporine
vitamin e

Filter by Location

 

Countries and States

Trials are often conducted at many locations around the world. Select up to three locations to find trials conducted in specific countries. Some countries (currently limited to the United States, Canada, and Australia), locations can be narrowed further by selecting a state.

Click the check box to the left of each age group that you wish to include in your search. You can select more than one age group. If you do not select a any group, all groups will be included.

Filter by Clinical Trial Phase


Study Phase

Most clinical trials are designated as phase 1, 2, 3, or 4, based on the type of questions that study is seeking to answer:

In Phase 1 clinical trials, researchers test a new drug or treatment in a small group of people (20-80) for the first time to evaluate its safety, determine a safe dosage range, and identify side effects.

In Phase 2 clinical trials, the study drug or treatment is given to a larger group of people (100-300) to see if it is effective and to further evaluate its safety.

In Phase 3 clinical trials, the study drug or treatment is given to large groups of people (1,000-3,000) to confirm its effectiveness, monitor side effects, compare it to commonly used treatments, and collect information that will allow the drug or treatment to be used safely.

In Phase 4 clinical trials, post marketing studies delineate additional information including the drug's risks, benefits, and optimal use.

These phases are defined by the Food and Drug Administration in the Code of Federal Regulations.

Click the check box to the left of each study phase that you wish to include in your search. You can select more than one study phase. If you do not select a any phase, all phases will be included.

Search by IRB-HSR Number and Clinical Trial Age

 


IRB-HSR

The IRB is obligated to review all such activities, whether funded or not, and certify that the research meets the federal, state, local and IRB requirements for exemption.
The IRB has determined that the review and determination of exemption status will be performed by an experienced IRB staff member.
Research will be determined to be exempt only when the sole involvement of human subjects will be in one or more of the categories listed in 45 CFR 46.101(b)(1-6) or 21 CFR 56.104(a-d). The IRB will not create new categories of exempt research.


Examples:

First Received

The first received date is the date when the clinical trial was first submitted to JoinClinicalTrials.com. There is often a delay of a few days before the trial is available on the JoinClinicalTrials.com website.

Clinical trial records are often updated after they have been published. The first received, last updated, start, and end dates are all displayed in the full text view of the clinical trial.

Specify a From date to find the most recent trials. Specify both From and To dates to find trials submitted during a certain period. If no dates are given, all trials will be included.

Dates should be given in a MM/DD/YYYY format, as in 1/1/2006 or 8/17/2004.

From To (MM/DD/YYYY)


Last Updated

The last updated date is the most recent date when changes to a clinical trial were submitted to JoinClinicalTrials.com. There is often a delay of a few days before the updated trial is available on the JoinClinicalTrials.com website.

Specify a From date to find the most recently changed trials. Specify both From and To dates to find trials changed during a certain period. If no dates are given, all trials will be included.
