Question :
I had an email from BJOG as follows:"As your trial commenced in August 2008, and was not prospectively registered, we am afraid that we are unable to consider it for publication in BJOG". What does it mean? is there a definite time to registor?my registration date for this article was 2010. should I have registored sooner?
 
Answer :
This is true. You have to register your trial before the recruitment of the first patient. Nevertheless some journals may accept your excuse if you explain that the registration movement in Iran is still in its early days.

Question :
We started our randomized trial in May, 2007 and completed in November, 2009. Can we register our trial now? If yes, how much will be charge?
 
Answer :
A trial can be registered at any time in IRCT at no charge. However the registration date will be the date of approval for the trail. Therefore for trials that have already finished or are underway, it will be a retrospective registration.

Dr. Jangjoo
 
Question :
What do you mean by "Primary and Secondry outcomes, outcome time point, and method of measurement" in registering a clinical trial.
 
Answer :
Here is an example to clarify the answer. In a clinical trial that examines the effect of a new antidepressant drug in treatment of depression, the researcher decide to measure depression using Beck questionnaire every month from the start of the treatment to find out if the scores will get better over a 6 months period. The researcher might be interested in assessing patient's quality of life as well using SF12 questionnaire to find out about the impact of the treatment on patient's quality of life. In this example Depression and quality of life are primary and secondary outcome measures respectively, Beck and SF12 questionnaires are methods of measurements and "every month" is the outcome time point for primary outcome measure.

Question :
I am working as a data manger on QUASAR2 clinical trial in Oxford University. I nenver thought there are clinical trials running in Iran. I am very interested in cooperating with them. Is there any chance that I can get to know the job vacancies via your website?
Many thanks,
 
Answer :
We have substantial numbers of clinical trials running in Iran each year. IRCT is a WHO primary register and is not involved in advertising job vacancies for clinical trials. I am afraid you have to look for vacancy information elsewhere.

Mojde Mirarefin
 
Question :
On behalf of Dr fakhrzade I have registered trial number "1109" (Effect of w-3 capsule on .......) almost 10 months ago. Our trial have not registered in your site despite all necessary informatio was available. I think that it could be due to incomplete the date of sampling and end of sampling. I have completed registration and expect your response.
 
Answer :
Dear Mrs Mirarefin, When you have access to your incomplete trial, it means that you have either not submitted it or have missed the notification which instruct you to get back to your record and make necessary changes. When your record is examined for compatibility with IRCT format, there are occasions where amendments are needed. In these cases, registrant's access to the record will be restored and an e-mail notification will go to his/her e-mail address. You might be one of those people who have missed this e-mail. We encourage IRCT registrants to check their SPAM e-mail regularly while registering a trial.

Question :
Can you please direct me to where I can find instructions on clinical trial application requirements in Iran. Thank you.
 
Answer :
The usual pathway for a clinical trial in Iran starts from an academic institution. When protocol is ready, it should be submitted to institutional review boards/ethic committees to get their approval. Next step is to secure funding from funding bodies. Finally the trial should be registered in IRCT (Iranian Registry of Clinical Trials) before it gets underway.

Name :
John McKenney
 
Question :
The instructions for registering in IRCT state that "All clinical trials that are conducted in Iran should have registration with IRCT." Is this instruction based on an Iranian law or regulation, or is it based on other factors, such as acceptance by ICMJE journal editors, WHO guidelines, etc.? If there is a legal basis, would you please tell me what it is or provide a link? Thank you very much.
 
Answer :
Dear John, This is based on an Iranian regulation set by Ministry of Health and Medical Education. As you may know IRCT is a bilingual registry and provides the opportunity to register a trial record both in English and Persian Languages. As one of the aims of the registration of trials worldwide is transparency and providing information for public, it is sensible to give the subjects of a trial the means to learn more about the study that they are participating in. By registering a trial in IRCT there will be a Persian language record of the trial that they can access to. For further detail please e-mail solaymani@hbi,ir

Ali Khamesipour
 
Question :
Please let me know why I have not received any email from you although 48 hours already passed.
 
Answer :
Dear Mr Khamesipour, If you haven't recieved an e-mail from IRCT 48 hours after registration, the most likely scenario is that e-mail has been redirected to your SPAM folder by your e-mail management server. Please check your SPAM or JUNK folder. Other less likely possibilities are spelling mistakes in your e-mail address (username) which results in sending e-mail to an invalid address.
