ClinicalTrials.gov is a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) that acts as a registry and results database of publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health, and the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) all require the public registration of clinical trials and, in some cases, the posting of trial results.

As part of Children’s National Hospital research compliance efforts, the ClinicalTrials.gov program aims to provide researchers with assistance in fulfilling the scientific, regulatory and ethical responsibilities associated with publicly registering and posting trial results on ClinicalTrials.gov.
