Journal Title:Acta Scientific Otolaryngology
he COVID-19 pandemic has an ongoing impact on the conduct of clinical trials across the world and India is no exception. The dis-ease has the potential to impact the scientific integrity and patient safety of ongoing trials. It has also affected the trial patient recruit-ment and retention. This may be due to several reasons like self-isolation/quarantine by patients and study site personnel, travel restriction across various districts of a state or interstate travel and also blocked access to Clinical trial sites in hospitals which may have been converted to Covid Care centres.
