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   37236   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6125   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Efficacy will be determined by the PASI and PGA. The proportion of subjects achieving >= PSAI 50, >= PSAI 75 and >= PSAI 90 will be assessed every 12 weeks.
    The proportion of subjects who are 'clear' or 'almost clear' as determined by the 7-point PGA will be assessed every 12 weeks up to and including Week 48. The proportion of subjects who are 'clear' or 'minimal' as determined by the 6-point PGA will be assessed evey 12 weeks until study completion.
