DRKS - German Clinical Trials Register


The DRKS is an open access online register for clinical trials conducted in Germany, which allows all users to search, register and share information on clinical trials.

You will find basic information like the title, short descriptions, inclusion and exclusion criteria, status and outcomes on every trial.

In order to search for clinical trials you can either enter a search term into the search box or you can use the extended search to refine your results. This allows for example to search specifically for trials currently recruiting patients.

The DRKS is a non- profit organization and is located at the German Institute of Medical Documentation and Information (DIMDI). DIMDI is a governmental institution within the scope of the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG).

The DRKS is an approved Primary Register in the WHO network since October 2008 and thus meets the requirements of the ICMJE.
