Clinical Trials Division

A clinical trial is a type of clinical research study. A clinical trial is an experiment designed to answer specific questions about possible new treatments or new ways of using existing (known) treatments.

Clinical trials are done to determine whether new drugs or treatments are safe and effective. These trials are part of a long, careful process which may take many years to complete. First, doctors study a new treatment in the lab. Then they often study the treatment in animals. If a new treatment shows promise, doctors then test the treatment in people via a clinical trial.

NCI is a registered world class cancer care institute based on strong moral grounds. NCI is equipped with all the necessary infrastructure and facilities to conduct all phases of Clinical Trials. Trials are conducted as per ICMR, Schedule Y & ICH-GCP Guidelines issued by the Central Drug Standard Control Organization, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India. Accordingly, we have registered Institutional Ethics Committee.
