Every week we screen the WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) to identify and extract data from RCTs evaluating the effectiveness of interventions for preventing and treating COVID-19 as well as of all trials assessing vaccines.

This dataset includes a detailed list of all the RCTs we have identified, including their characteristics (i.e. registration date, study design, study aim, funding, country, etc.). This data is being used to develop our two living data visualizations of treatments and vaccines.

This is the first version of the database, dated 1st April 2020. Since then, the file has been updated once a week. 

The latest version of this database is available upon registration at

In fact, we are willing to make our database freely available to people who request it but it is important for us to know who is downloading our data and for which scope. We will reference in our website every work produced using our data.
