Here we list databases, trial trackers and similar resources that have been develped to aid in the tracking and identification of trials and studies concerning COVID-19. We also include resources which provide access to trial materials, such as protocols, data sets and publications.

These resources are not collated in any particular order, and exist in a range of formats and differ in the range of information that they provide. We therefore suggest that you access a range of the resources to ensure that you identify the most useful resource for your own study, trial or query.

If you have any questions regarding the below table, or would like to suggest a resource that you think we should include, please contact info@theglobalhealthnetwork.org

A comprehensive overview of relevant resources is being maintained by TranspariMED and is available to download here.

Description 

 

Cytel COVID-19 Clinical Trial Tracker

Cytel has developed this COVID-19 trial dashboard to identify registered trials investigating the use of interventional strategies for the treatment of COVID-19, or COVID-19 related symptoms. Trials can be filtered by location, trial status and intervention, amongst other identifiers. 

The dashboard uses data from WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform, the European Clinical Trials Registry, clinicaltrials.gov, the Chinese Clinical Trial Registry, the German Clinical Trials registry, the Japan Primary Registries Network, the Iranian Clinical Trial Registry, and the Australian New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry.

 

COVID-19 TrialsTracker

Developed as part of TrialsTracker.net project run by The DataLab at the University of Oxford, the 'COVID-19 TrialsTracker' brings together structured, cleaned data from clinical trial registries on studies of COVID-19, and tracks the availability of their results.

The tracker uses data from the ICTRP and may collect additional information directly from certain registries over time.

 

GloPID-R/UKCDR COVID-19 Research Project Tracker

UKCDR and GloPID-R are maintaining a live database of funded research projects across the world related to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The database aims to support funders and researchers in delivering a more effective and coherent global research response to the pandemic by providing an overview of research projects mapped against the priorities identified in the WHO Coordinated Global Research Roadmap: 2019 Novel Coronavirus.

It includes:

 

GHTC COVID-19 R&D Tracker

The Global Health and Technologies Coalition (GHTC) is tracking research and development (R&D) efforts to combat SARS-CoV-2. Here they summarise the latest updates on:

  • US government-supported R&D for SARS-CoV-2
  • Efforts led by multilateral institutions
  • R&D being led by GHTC members
  • Other efforts by GHTC members to respond to the pandemic

 

WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform

The main aim of the WHO ICTRP is to facilitate the prospective registration of the WHO Trial Registration Data Set on all clinical trials, and the public accessibility of that information. Users can download all COVID-19 trials from the ICTRP database. 

 

ClinicalTrials.gov 

ClinicalTrials.gov is a database of privately and publicly funded clinical studies conducted around the world. Users can See listed clinical studies related to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Alternatively, users can search 'COVID-19' or related terms. 

 

EU Clinical Trials Register - COVID-19 Trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows users to search for protocol and results information on:

  • Interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);

  • Clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.

This link shows the results for COVID-19 clinical trials from the EU Clinical Trials Register.

 

COVID-evidence Database

COVID-evidence, a non-profit initiative of the Department of Clinical Research at University of Basel and the Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford, are maintaining this database of available trial evidence on benefits and harms of interventions for COVID-19.

As well as trial information, the database provides links to original sources such as study protocol documents, registry entries, and publications. In addition, COVID-evidence also aims to provide reliably extracted key trial information that would otherwise only be accessible by reading every manuscript in detail.

 

Cochrane COVID-19 Study Register

Cochrane's COVID-19 Study Register is a freely-available, continually-updated, annotated reference collection of human studies on COVID-19, including interventional, observational, diagnostic, prognostic, epidemiological, and economic designs. Please note: the register will not include in-vitro study references. 

The three primary data sources for Cochrane's COVID-19 Study Register are ClinicalTrials.gov, WHO's International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) and PubMed.

 

EPPI-Centre COVID-19: Living Map of the Evidence

 

EPPI-Centre (Evidence for Policy and Practice Information and Co-ordinating Centre) are maintaining an up-to-date map of the current evidence surrounding COVID-19 that is partitioned into broad domains for easy exploration. 

The map is updated weekly and consists of studies on COVID-19, identified in MEDLINE and Embase, and published in 2019 or later.
