The NHMRC Clinical Trials Centre co-ordinates a number of large-scale, multi-centre trials in cancer and cardiovascular disease. To find out more about the trials in which the CTC is involved click on the ‘trials’ button on the Trials page. The cancer trials are subdivided into: breast cancer (4 trials), gastrointestinal (6 trials), and other (4 trials), while the cardiovascular trials (9 in all) are listed under: acute coronary, cardiac rehabilitation, and coronary prevention.
The CTC also maintains a prospective register of randomised trials in cancer in which Australians are participating. To view a list of these trials (title only), click on the button marked National Clinical Trials Registry (see below). If you go to the ‘Trials open to recruitment’ section you will see the date on which this list was created.
