Analyzing the Parkinson's disease clinical trial pipeline to facilitate patient collaboration in research.


The goal of the PDTrialTracker.info site is to provide visibility into the Parkinson's disease clinical trial pipeline to facilitate collaboration between the PD patient and research communities, thereby accelerating the path to a cure.  PDTrialTracker incorporates clinical trial data from ClinicalTrials.gov, the largest database of privately and publicly funded clinical studies conducted around the world.  It provides pre-filtered, direct links to interactive maps and trial listings on ClinicalTrials.gov so you can easily view active PD trials by trial type (interventional, observational), phase, recruiting status, therapy type, location, and more.  Collaboration opportunities include projects focused on addressing trial funding and recruiting needs, enhancing clinical trial best practices, and involving patients in study planning and design to ensure the greatest chance of successful outcomes.
