This section introduces you to NCI Clinical Trials Reporting Program (CTRP) Registration, and provides instructions for registering for an account.
Registration provides cancer clinical trial access to researchers who have CTRP accounts. It enables these users to register, amend, and update trials one at a time, and to view details of existing trials submitted by members of the cancer research community. You can register Complete and Abbreviated interventional and non-interventional trials.
About Clinical Trial Details
Registration captures clinical trial details, a sanctioned set of key data elements. This set of recorded data enables the research community to share and analyze standardized clinical trial details.
As a CTRP account holder, you can search for and review a subset of registered data that has been submitted to CTRP and validated by the Clinical Trials Reporting Office (CTRO).

Typical Life Cycle of a Trial
This section describes, in words and visually, the typical life cycle of a trial:
- If the trial is not complete, the specialist sends a request to the submitter for information. The trial has a processing status of On Hold. When the CTRO receives the requested information, a Document Specialist takes the trial off hold. The trial's processing status returns to the previous status, which in this case would be Submitted.
- If the trial is not valid, the specialist rejects the submission. The trial has a processing status of Rejected.
- If the trial is complete and valid, the specialist accepts the submission. The trial has a processing status of Accepted.
The following diagram illustrates the typical life cycle of a trial and the relationship between actions and processing statuses:
For more information, refer to Trial Processing Statuses and Amendment Process Life Cycle.
Role-Based Tasks in Registration
Each person who registers for a CTRP account is associated with a role. One registered user from an organization can request an Administrator role from the CTRO. That Administrator can grant administrative privileges to other users in the Administrator's organization.
CTRP account holders can perform only those tasks that are associated with their assigned roles.
The following table is a matrix of roles and tasks. A Yes or No in each table cell indicates whether someone with a given role can perform the task.
Trial Categories (Study Sources)
