May 2018: New import function for Clinicaltrials.gov records
Currently, all trials registered on ClinicalTrials.gov with a recruitment site in
Australia and/or New Zealand are automatically imported and displayed on the ANZCTR
website. From 20th May, registrants will be able to add additional ANZCTR specific
information and local contact details to these records if they wish, without the
need to apply for an ANZCTR registration number (ACTRN) as well. For further details and instructions please see FAQs.
