Clinical Trials


Australia is one of the research capitals of the world. Across the country there are countless teams looking into new ways of diagnosing, treating and ultimately curing all different types of health conditions, including arthritis. 

There are two key places you can contact to learn more about the clinical trials looking into arthritis, and all other health conditions. If you are interested in becoming involved in a research study these places can also give you information on the relevant study and can connect you with the research teams: 

Australian New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry (ANZCTR)

The ANZCTR is an online registry of clinical trials being undertaken in Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere. The ANZTCR's search function allows you to search and find clinical trials involving arthritis. Once you find a relevant trial, you will be able to contact the person listed as the 'public contact' of the trial for more information.

Australian Clinical Trials 

Australian Clinical Trials is run by the National Health and Medical Research Council and the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science to provide information and resources about clinical trials and how you can get involved.
