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   38470   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6318   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    In postmenopausal women with osteoporosis, to evaluate and compare with placebo the persistence of the effect of oral monthly ibandronate, 100 mg and 150 mg, on percent change from baseline in the biochemical marker of bone resorption, serum carboxyterminal crosslinked telopeptide of Type I collagen (CTx1), during the third month treatment (four weeks post dose compared to one week post dose).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary objectives :
    In postmenopausal women with osteoporosis:
    • Persistence of effect of oral monthly ibandronate, 100 mg and 150 mg, on urinary NTx/Cr during the third month of treatment
    • Effect of oral monthly ibandronate, 100 mg and 150 mg, on the proportion of patients with markers of bone resorption above the pre-specified reference levels
    • Persistence of the effect of oral monthly ibandronate, 100 mg and 150 mg, on percent change from baseline in the biochemical markers of bone resorption during the first and second month
    • Safety and tolerability of oral monthly ibandronate, 100 mg and 150 mg, and placebo
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Information not present in EudraCT

    •The patient has a history of or evidence for metabolic bone disease (other than postmenopausal bone loss).
    •The patient has experienced a clinical fracture in the past year.
    •The patient has a history of cancer.

    -thyroid hormone, unless on a stable dose for at least six weeks before randomization with serum TSH within the normal range and no plans to alter the dose during the course of the study.
    -fluoride at a dose greater than 1 mg/day for more than one month at any time.
    -strontium ranelate.
    -glucocorticoid treatment for more than one month with > 5 mg of oral prednisone (or the equivalent) per day within six months prior to randomization.
    -immunosuppressant treatment (e.g., cyclosporine, azathioprine) within the previous year.
    •Vitamin A in excess of 10,000 IU per day or Vitamin D in excess of 5000 IU per day, calcitonin, phenytoin, heparin, or lithium.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
