Not all studies listed on ClinicalTrials.gov are funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or other agencies of the U.S. Federal Government. Not all listed studies are regulated and/or reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or other governmental entities. Information on ClinicalTrials.gov is provided by study sponsors and investigators, and they are responsible for ensuring that the studies follow all applicable laws and regulations. NLM staff do not verify the scientific validity or relevance of the submitted information beyond a limited quality control review for apparent errors, deficiencies, or inconsistencies.” Finally, although CDD makes reasonable efforts to provide accurate information, all data are originally from other public data sources and are not intended, nor liable, for their use for medical decision making.
