DescriptionStudy IDs—Use this field to search for a clinical study by an identification number.
Every clinical study is associated with identification numbers assigned to the clinical study protocol by the sponsor, funders, or others. These include unique identifiers from other registries and National Institutes of Health grant numbers. In addition, ClinicalTrials.gov assigns a ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier, or NCT Number, a unique identification code is given to each clinical study registered on ClinicalTrials.gov. Because the format is the letters "NCT" followed by an 8-digit number (for example, NCT00000419), this identifier is also known as the NCT Number.
