I am delighted to announce the availability of the new European clinical trials portfolio map for ESCP. I would like to thank the Research Committee, but especially Peter Christensen for helping prepare this.
The Research Committee have been working to provide a portfolio of clinical trials that can be made available for international collaboration across Europe. This portfolio map will be updated every three months with new trials. If you wish to look up details for each trial on the map, there is a hyperlink which will give you an abstract of the trial and contact details for a protocol.
This also gives me the opportunity to re-publicise the ESCP initiative that will provide a small fund to support the translation of protocols and development of new national ethics proposals.
ESCP members have a unique opportunity to develop international trials in coloproctology across the whole of Europe. This portfolio map is a first step along this road. The Research Committee looks forward to working closely with the membership to develop these existing studies and many new studies in the future.
