New Nonprofit Announced Online Platform for Listing Clinical Trials

Posted in :: 2023 Volume 6 :: Thursday, October 26th, 2023

A new nonprofit, TrueTrials, announced its online platform for listing U.S.-based and FDA-approved clinical trials. Considering itself the cell-based science version of a Good Housekeeping seal of approval, the platform is intended to provide patients and families with an easy resource to find approved trials for various indications.

TrueTrials will list only clinical trials that are authorized by the FDA, and its team verifies every 60 days that listed trials are still enrolling patients. Therefore, the database remains current and relevant for patients. The website also includes educational content and currently includes videos from an interview with Peter Marks of the FDA.

For more information regarding how patients can use TrueTrials, or how to list enrolling trials on the platform, see the TrueTrials website.
