"UKCCCR Register of UK Cancer Trials"










Project Summary and Objectives:

Trials registers provide design and recruitment information on current and closed trials for those designing, or those considering participating in a Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT); assist funding bodies in assessing the relevance of proposals for new trials, and the allocation of funds; and facilitate systematic reviews and meta-analyses.

The UKCCCR Register is a register of of UK RCTs in cancer. The main objectives are to produce and maintain comprehensive and up-to-date register of UK RCTs in cancer, and ultimately to ensure that all trials are prospectively registered with the UKCCCR Register.

The UKCCCR Register currently contains over 500 RCTs, more than a quarter are open to patient accrual. Information on trial design, patient accrual, organisation and funding is held on the UKCCCR Register. Copies of trial publications and protocols are kept on file. The UKCCCR Register software includes searching and reporting facilities, results can be viewed on screen, printed or downloaded to disc.

The UKCCCR Register can be downloaded by collaborators from our Web site and is also available on floppy disc and CD-ROM for use in Microsoft Windows.

The project is also funded, in part, by the Cancer Research Campaign and the Imperial Cancer Research Fund.
