Answer 1

• Did you find the link yet? If you are on the home page, click the “open” link for that record. Underneath the “Record Status” section, and above the “Protocol Section,” there is a series of links: “Spelling,” “Preview,” “Draft Receipt (PDF RTF),” “Download XML,” and the last one is “Delete…”. That is what you want. I don’t think the record status matters, as long as it has never been released for review and NCT ID is not yet assigned. • If the record has already been released for PRS review, you will need to contact register@clinicaltrials.gov and ask them to delete it. The “delete” link disappears once it’s been released, but you should have no trouble getting them to delete it if the record hasn’t been posted yet.
