CTN Dissemination Library
The CTN dissemination library is a digital repository of resources created by and about NIDA's National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN). It provides CTN members and the public with a single point of access to research findings and other materials that are approved for dissemination throughout the CTN and to the larger community of providers, researchers and policy-makers.
The CTN Datashare description is as follows: The NIDA Data Share web site is an electronic environment that allows data from completed clinical trials to be distributed to investigators and the public in order to promote new research, encourage further analyses, and disseminate information to the community. Secondary analyses produced from data sharing multiply the scientific contribution of the original research. NIH expects and supports the timely release and sharing of final research data from NIH-supported studies for use by other researchers to expedite the translation of research results into knowledge, products and procedures to improve human health.
This website was created in order to make the NIDA Clinical Trial data available to as wide an audience as possible. As studies are completed and their data become available, this web site will be linked to those data.
The following information will be posted per protocol:
- Study protocol
- Reference to study publication of primary outcome
- Data sets (SAS and ASCII )
- Annotated case report forms
- Define file (also known as Data Dictionary)
- Study-specific de-identification notes
