ICMJE policy requires, and recommends that all medical journal editors require, registration of clinical trials prior to the start of enrollment as a condition of consideration for publication. Additionally, ICMJE expects authors to ensure that they have met the requirements of their funding and regulatory agencies regarding posting of results to ClinicalTrials.gov.
No, posting of tabular results data to ClinicalTrials.gov is not considered prior publication. Here’s the ICMJE policy.
If required, results must be posted within 12 months of the Primary Completion Date, that is, within 12 months of the last study visit where you collected data for your primary outcome measure.
This 12 month deadline has nothing to do with IRB closure, publication, data analysis, etc. so be prepared to your data within 12 months of your last study visit.
