DRKS - German Clinical Trials Register

The German Clinical Trials Register (DRKS) is the German WHO primary registry. It is competent for the registration of all patient-oriented clinical trials conducted in Germany.
The DRKS now contains well over 12,000 studies. Currently, around 2000 studies are added annually.

The aim of the registry is to offer the public a complete, up-to-date overview of clinical trials in Germany. The DRKS is not only a source of information for patients. It also supports the expert audience in the planning of clinical trials e.g. by helping to avoid redundant trials.
