The Clinical Trials Registry – India (CTRI) is a free public record system that registers clinical trials that are conducted in India. Launched in 2007, it is hosted at the ICMR’s National Institute of Medical Statistics. It has become mandatory since 2009 to be registered in this portal before conducting any clinical trials involving human participants for developing drugs, surgical procedures, behavioural changes etc.
Ayurveda Dataset of CTRI was jointly developed by ICMR and CCRAS (Central Council for Research in Ayurveda Sciences). It will promote Ayurveda at the global level and facilitate the use of Ayurveda terminologies in records while researching Ayurvedic interventions.
