The Ayurveda dataset on The Clinical Trials Registry- India CTRI Portal will be launched online today by Minister for AYUSH Kiren Rijiju. The launch will mark a significant step towards worldwide visibility for Ayurveda-based clinical trials.
The Ayurveda Dataset of CTRI has been jointly developed by Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences (CCRAS) under Ministry of Ayush. Mr Rijiju will also launch four more Portals developed by the CCRAS. These AMAR, SAHI, e-MEDHA and RMIS.
All of these are primarily developed by CCRAS while RMIS is a collaborative effort of ICMR and CCRAS. CTRI is a primary register of Clinical Trials under World Health Organization WHO’s International Clinical Trials Registry Platform, ICTRP and creation of Ayurveda dataset in CTRI facilitates usages of Ayurveda terminologies to record clinical study meta data based on Ayurveda interventions.
Now with the joint efforts of ICMR-National Institute of Medical Statistics and CCRAS, Ayurvedic terminology has become part of CTRI.
