Clinical Trials Study Data

This website receives study data from the following registers:

The study data, when in Be Part of Research, is not changed or manipulated and simply ‘passes’ through the system allowing end users to search for research studies. The system does not have the functionality to add, remove, change or delete any for the data provided by ClinicalTrials.Gov and ISRCTN.

As the registers providing the study data are external to Be Part of Research, the service cannot accept responsibility or liability for the content of the information provided.

Ownership and management

The Department of Health and Social Care, as the data controller for the Be Part of Research service, owns the intellectual property to this service and is responsible for managing the relationship between the third party study data providers.
