Searching for a clinical trial

The clinical trials portal makes an important contribution towards making human research more transparent. Since 2014, every clinical trial conducted in Switzerland must be registered on the SNCTP. Every project listing includes a brief summary and the contact details of the person responsible.

Registering a clinical trial

Authorised research projects must be registered on the SNCTP before execution. In order to facilitate the registration process for researchers, it is conducted on the basis of pre-existing data from a World Health Organization (WHO) primary register.

Participating in a clinical trial

Interested persons can search the SNCTP for research projects appropriate for them – the information on the registered projects clearly shows what the subject of the research is, whether research participants are being sought and how to contact the persons responsible for the project.
