The Cochrane Airways Specialised Register of Trials is a unique database containing references to reports of definite, probable and possible randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and quasi-randomised trials (CCTs) relevant to the Group's scope and topics. The Register includes references to reports on asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), sleep apnoea, bronchiectasis, interstitial lung diseases, and pulmonary hypertension.

The Register was developed, maintained and administered by the Information Specialist at the Cochrane Airways editorial base. References to trial reports were identified through systematic searches of bibliographic databases, and handsearching of respiratory conference abstracts.

The Register was used for the following purposes:

  • To support the production of Cochrane Airways reviews.
  • To inform prioritisation of Cochrane Airways Reviews.
Review authors working with Cochrane Airways had access to the Trials Register via the Group’s Information Specialist. The Trials Register was made available to a wider audience through the CENTRAL database on the Cochrane Library (

To identify this subset of CENTRAL, search all fields on the Cochrane Library using the code SR-AIRWAYS.

The Register was updated until August/September 2021.
