Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   36367   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5991   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    3To assess the effects of tesaglitazar given as monotherapy as compared to
    placebo/metformin in type 2 diabetic patients on: basal hepatic glucose output;the plasma profile of glucose, insulin and lipids after a mixed meal;calculated insulin secretion;energy expenditure and substrate metabolism by indirect calorimetry;body composition using DXA-scan, abdominal fat distribution using magnetic resonance imaging, liver fat and muscle fat content using magnetic resonance spectroscopy;laboratory efficacy variables
    4Exploratory assess the plasma levels of amino acids
