CenterWatch: Clinical Trials Listing Service (CenterWatch, Inc.)

Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL; Clinical Trials)
CENTRAL includes details of published articles taken from bibliographic databases (notably MEDLINE and EMBASE), and other published and unpublished sources. About three-fifths of the records in CENTRAL are from MEDLINE. In addition, each Cochrane Review Group maintains and updates a collection of controlled trials relevant to its own area of interest (Specialized Registers). CENTRAL also includes each groups' collected items that might not be relevant to its own field of interest (Handsearch Results).  All of these combined make up CENTRAL.  Yale only.

Current Clinical Research Studies (National Institutes of Health)
Searchable collection of research studies being conducted at the NIH Clinical Center. Enter the diagnosis, sign, symptom, or other key words or phrases.
