The Endocrine Society and CenterWatch Launch ENDOTrials: The Endocrine Clinical Trials Network

 

CenterWatch, a leading publisher of information about investigational treatments in clinical trials, and The Endocrine Society, the world's largest and most active organization devoted to research on hormones and the clinical practice of endocrinology, today proudly announce the launch of ENDOTrials: The Endocrine Clinical Trials Network. The Internet-based clinical trials resource center, will be accessible through The Endocrine Society's web site, and will utilize CenterWatch's award-winning content.

Through a partnership with CenterWatch, The Endocrine Society and its Corporate Liaison Board will offer ENDOTrials exclusively to Endocrine Society members. This new member benefit features listings of endocrine-related clinical trials, clinical trial results, FDA approvals and drugs in the research pipeline on a web-based, searchable database.

"One of The Endocrine Society's recent initiatives has been to increase the Society's clinical trials education and inform members about current and upcoming clinical trials," stated Endocrine Society President William Crowley, M.D. "It is important to provide Society members with the latest information on clinical trials that are currently being conducted as well as information about how our members and their patients can participate in clinical trials. The new database and partnership with CenterWatch will allow Endocrine Society members to stay on top of all clinical trials activity that relates to endocrinology."

The ENDOTrials network will allow The Endocrine Society and its members to track endocrine-related clinical trial activity and to access the latest information on drug development breakthroughs. Many of The Endocrine Society's committees will also be able to use the database to track clinical trials and to invite the presentation of scientific papers at The Endocrine Society's Annual Meeting as well as publication in its journals. In short, ENDOTrials will keep Society members up to date on the latest advances in the field of endocrinology.

"This relationship will enable Endocrine Society members to access high quality and up-to-date clinical research information through an easy-to-use online service," added Paul Molinari, Manager of Strategic Alliances for CenterWatch. "We're delighted to be collaborating with The Endocrine Society as they target solutions designed to streamline areas in the clinical research process. We're finding that other major medical and health organizations are following their lead and looking to CenterWatch for this information."
