Give NIH your feedback on rules for Basic Science that meets their definition of “clinical trial”
The NIH issued a Request for Information (RFI) seeking input on the standards NIH should use in assuring adequate registration and results information reporting for the subset of studies that meet NIH’s definition of a clinical trial and that focus on basic research. They are referring to these studies as “prospective basic science studies involving human participants.” See this short NIH blog post for more details.
