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   37733   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6184   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.

    13.Evidence of any other significant clinical disorder or laboratory finding that makes it undesirable for the patient to participate in the study
    14.Incomplete healing of the surgical incision from prior major surgery (small biopsy wounds will not prohibit the patient from study entry)
    15.Signs of neurological symptoms consistent with new onset spinal cord compression
    16.Patients with pre-existing peripheral neuropathy greater than or equal to grade 2 (NCI CTC criteria)
    17.Pregnancy or breast feeding (women of child-bearing potential). Women of childbearing potential must practice acceptable methods of birth control throughout the study to prevent pregnancy

    19.Treatment with a non-approved or investigational drug within 30 days before Day 1 of study treatment
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
