We describe the connection between single field inflationary
models and the primordial power spectrum, discuss in particular the spectral index and its running.
We consider then the observational constraints on a specific
class of models (the running-mass inflationary model), which
show a particular scale-dependence of the spectral index,
from the WMAP first data release of the CMB anisotropy and from new clustering data from the SLOAN survey.
