How to find a trial

The World Health Organisation maintains an on-line International Clinical Trials Registry Platform on which clinical trials are registered. The register allows for an internationally agreed set of criteria about clinical trials to be maintained. Clinical trials are those research studies investigating the effect of a health-related intervention – usually a treatment.

Details of trials investigating interventions in Lyme disease, both in progress and completed, can be viewed via the search portal by entering “Lyme disease” in the search box. You will then be able to click on a link for any trial and find out further information.

Many of the trials have a link to ClinicalTrials.GOV under the US National Library of Medicine where there is further information, often much easier to read.
