Clinical trial registration in Sri Lanka
What is it about?
Clinical trial registration is a mechanism to improve transparency in the conduct and reporting of clinical trials. The Sri Lanka Clinical Trials Registry (SLCTR) was established in November 2006. We describe our experience of the first ten years at the SLCTR.
Why is it important?
This is the first report of a clinical trial registry over a ten-year period. We have described the pattern of clinical trial registration at the SLCTR, and discussed the challenges of trial registration in a resource-limited setting.
