5 Reasons to disclose results on ClinicalTrials.gov prior to EudraCT and use TrialScope Convert

April 7, 2015 Francine Lane

On July 21, 2014, the countdown officially began to disclose results in Europe on the EudraCT website.  

For those looking to disclose results, here are 5 reasons to disclose them on ClinicalTrials.gov first and use TrialScope Convert to seed your EudraCT disclosure.





Most companies have been using ClinicalTrials.gov  for clinical trial dsiclosure and clinical trial results disclosure for several years.  The information is understood and familiar; many have the process of disclosing results down to an art.

Established tools

Whether you use the PRS data entry interface run by the NIH or a vendor solution, the tools for disclosing results have been around for a while and get the job done.  The EudraCT interface is relatively new, and they are still working out the kinks.

Review by a human

When you disclose results at ClinicalTrials.gov, a human looks over your disclosure to see if it makes sense.  EudraCT doesn’t have this quality step (at least not yet).


Familiarity with the data and established tools make collecting and entering your results data move faster.  Once you convert your disclosure to the EudraCT format, you only have to focus on the differences.  One contact estimated this would save 5-8 hours of work per study.


ClinicalTrials.gov is the de facto standard for disclosing clinical trial information. Many companies chose to disclose on ClinicalTrials.gov in addition to wherever else disclosure is required to give a single place where all public disclosures are available.
