Clinical Research Support (CRS) provides expertise in federal regulations and policy that govern reporting requirements in ClinicalTrials.gov and the National Cancer Institute's Clinical Trials Reporting Program (CTRP). CRS staff work with Consortium investigators and their staff to ensure registration, accrual reporting, and record maintenance.
As members of an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, Cancer Consortium investigators are responsible for maintaining compliance in ClinicalTrials.gov and CTRP.
Government agencies and the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) have issued laws and directives on the subject of trial registration. All parties have consistently agreed that the purpose of trial registration is to promote the public good by ensuring that the existence and design of clinically directive trials are publicly available.
