1 ClinicalTrials.gov
ClinicalTrials.gov is a registry and results database of federally and privately supported clinical trials conducted in the United States and around the world. ClinicalTrials.gov gives information about a trial's purpose, who may participate, locations, and phone numbers for more details. This information should be used in conjunction with advice from health care professionals. ClinicalTrials.gov is sponsored by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), other federal agencies, and private industry. The NIH has developed the registry in collaboration with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as a result of the FDA Modernization Act, which was passed into law in November 1997.
2 EU Clinical Trials Register
The EU Clinical Trials Register website allows you to search for information on clinical trials in European Union (EU) member states and the European Economic Area (EEA) and clinical trials which are conducted outside the EU/EEA if they form part of a paediatric investigation plan (PIP). The EU Clinical Trials Register website is hosted by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). You can find information on the design of each clinical trial, the sponsor, the investigational medicinal products and therapeutic areas involved and the status of the clinical trial.
3 Glycogen Storage Disease Network (GSDnet)
GSDNet is an unmoderated discussion list for all types of glycogen storage disease (GSD). The list is intended to be a resource and support network for individuals and families affected by one of the 11 types of GSD. Participation by medical and scientific professionals, and other relevant parties, is also encouraged.
As a supplement to GSDnet, there is a group on Facebook. It's called the 'GSDnet Facebook Colour Supplement' and is a hidden group - won't show up in searches etc. The idea is that it allows people to swap photos and other things not easily do-able via the GSDnet mailing list.
Just send an e-mail to gsdnet-request@listserv.icors.org if you would like added. You will then find the group in the left-hand column of your Facebook home screen.
