I’ve been working on a new project, ClinicalTrialshq.com. It’s still a work in progress, but It’s coming along.

ClinicalTrialsHQ allows patients to search over the National Institute of Healths database of open clinical trials across the world.  Additionally, patients can provide their email and receive notifications when new trials become available for a given condition.

The idea for the application came from a personal need. I was diagnosed with a disease that has no cure, and only a few treatments in clinical trials. A few Google searches later led me to clinicaltrials.gov. An open database of clinical trials geared towards researchers and practitioners. I wanted to build something that patients could use more comfortably.

There is stil a lot of work left to do. I have to finish the front-end, and the search is not nearly as good or fast as it could be. I should have it finished in the next few days.

The code is available at github.com/cmaury/clinicaltrialshq. 

Let me know what you think.
