How to register a trial
This aspect of the Nigerian Clinical Trial Registry (NCTR) is unique in recognising that Nigerian trialists face additional challenges in trial registration and seeks to provide feasible ways of overcoming these. Due to the limited and unreliable access to the internet experienced by individuals in various parts of the country, trials may be registered online, (via the internet if access is sufficiently reliable) or by email, postal mail or facsimile.
