The US Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 (FDAAA)1 requires that applicable clinical trials (ACTs) submit results to ClinicalTrials.gov within 1 year of completion. ClinicalTrials.gov identifies trials that likely meet this definition as probable ACTs (pACTs). A complementary National Institutes of Health (NIH) policy requires that nonapplicable clinical trials (non-ACTs) funded by grants submitted to NIH from January 18, 2017, also submit results.2
