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   37199   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6122   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.

    • Likelihood of requiring treatment during the study period with drugs not permitted by the clinical study protocol
    • Clinically relevant cardiovascular, hepatic, neurological, endocrine, or other major systemic disease making implementation of the protocol or interpretation of the study results difficult or that would put the subject at risk by participating in the study
    • History of drug or alcohol abuse
    • Mental condition rendering the subject unable to understand the nature, scope, and possible consequences of the study
    • Subject unlikely to comply with protocol, e.g., uncooperative attitude, inability to return for follow-up visits, and known unlikelihood of completing the study
    • Subject is the investigator or any sub-investigator, research assistant, pharmacist, study coordinator, other staff or relative thereof directly involved in the conduct of the protocol
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy variable will be the annual relapse rate, defined as the number of relapses per subjects-year.
    A gross estimate of annual relapse rate for a treatment group would be the total number of relapses incurred by the subjects in that group divided by the sum of study durations (in year) of all subjects in the group.
