COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted/resubmitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

vaccine/placebos, with the exception of the seasonal influenza vaccine.

16. Presence of uncontrolled chronic pulmonary, cardiovascular, renal, hepatic,
neurologic, hematologic or metabolic (including diabetes mellitus) disorders, which
would include the potential subject in a high-risk category for SARS CoV 2 infection
and/or its complications.
