As part of an NIH-wide initiative to strengthen the clinical trial research portfolio, NCCIH has released a series of new clinical trial funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) specifically designed for clinical trials focused on 1) natural product studies and 2) mind and body intervention studies.
At NCCIH, we study health interventions widely used by the American public, often with little evidence of efficacy and inadequate understanding of potential safety concerns. One of our goals is to produce high-quality rigorous evidence to support the development of clinical practice guidelines, such as the recently published American College of Physicians’ guidelines on noninvasive treatments for low-back pain. These new FOAs will help us fill in gaps in research and continue to help people manage important health issues, such as nonpharmacologic approaches to pain.
