Challenges in administering a clinical trials registry: Lessons from the Clinical Trials Registry-India

The Clinical Trials Registry - India (CTRI), an online system ( for the registration of clinical trials being conducted in India, has its secretariat at the National Institute of Medical Statistics of the Indian Council of Medical Research in New Delhi. The primary objective of the CTRI is to ensure that all clinical trials conducted in India are registered in order to bring transparency, accountability and access to clinical trials. Since its launch on 20 July 2007, the CTRI has gone from strength to strength and, as of January 2013, more than 3,300 trials had been registered.
