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   37211   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6120   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
    E.2.1 Assess the balance of risk and benefit of lowering blood pressure with GTN immediately after ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Assess whether pre-stroke antihypertensive therapy should be continued or stopped temporarily after stroke
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    Genetic sub-study: An important aim of the genetic analyses is to determine whether polymorphic differences in candidate genes explain blood pressure and outcome responses to GTN (pharmacogenetic analysis). The exact genetic analyses to be performed are undefined at present and will depend on relevant scientific information available at the time of laboratory analysis and prior to sample destruction. Likely analyses will include genes related to the synthesis and metabolism of nitric oxide (e.g. endothelial nitric oxide synthase) and the mechanism of action of antihypertensive agents (e.g. polymorphisms in receptors)
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    a) Adult (age > 18 years).b) Clinical stroke syndrome with limb weakness lasting at least 1 hour (i.e. not likely to be atransient ischaemic attack).c) Residual limb weakness at the time of enrolment (SSS Arm <6 and/or Leg <6, appendix C).d) Onset < 48 hours. If the time of onset is unknown, apply the time when the patient was lastknown to be well. [This timeframe covers the period of maximum uncertainty over alteringblood pressure and should permit the vast majority of otherwise eligible patients to berecruited]e) Conscious (Glasgow Coma Scale > 8).f) Systolic blood pressure in range 140 mmHg to 220 mmHg inclusive on the basis of at leastone of the three baseline pre-randomisation measures.g) Independent prior to stroke (pre-morbid modified Rankin Scale < 2).h) Meaningful consent, or assent from a relative or carer if the patient is unable to givemeaningful consent (e.g. in cases of dysphasia, confusion, or reduced conscious level).
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    a) Definite need for nitrate therapy: e.g. concurrent myocardial infarction, unstable angina, leftventricular failure. Patients admitted on nitrates for the management of stable angina maystop these for the 7 day trial treatment period. b) Contraindication to nitrate therapy: e.g. hypersensitivity to nitrates, dehydration,hypovolaemia, hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, aortic stenosis, cardiactamponade, constrictive pericarditis, mitral stenosis, marked anaemia, closed-angleglaucoma, sildenafil (Viagra) or related drug, within 24 hours.c) Definite need for pre-stroke antihypertensive, anti-anginal or anti-heart failure medication:e.g. concurrent angina, heart failure.d) Definite need for new antihypertensive, anti-anginal or anti-heart failure medication duringacute stroke: e.g. concurrent angina, heart failure, hypertensive encephalopathy, aorticdissection.e) Patients expected, on the basis of existing investigations, to require surgical intervention(e.g. clot evacuation, carotid endarterectomy) during the treatment or follow-up period.) Known intracerebral pathology other than stroke, e.g. subarachnoid haemorrhage, braintumour, cerebral abscess.g) Other serious condition which is likely to prevent outcome assessment at 90 days, e.g.advanced cancer.h) Previous enrolment in ENOS.i) Current involvement in another trial of an experimental drug. [Patients may be randomisedinto observational studies or non-drug trials.]j) Not available for follow-up, e.g. no fixed address, overseas visitor.k) Females of childbearing potential where pregnancy cannot be excluded by a negativepregnancy test, pregnancy, or breastfeeding.l) Need for new antihypertensive therapy to lower systolic blood pressure to achieve theenrolment range of 140-220mmHgm) New (not prescribed pre-stroke) antihypertensive medication commenced after stroke onset
