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   35145   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5744   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.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study is to assess how PPI treated GERD-patients with insufficient symptom control will benefit from a change in management by providing a more efficient acid secretion inhibition during 4 weeks, by evaluation of esomeprazole 40 mg compared to continued pre-study PPI treatment.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To assess productivity with regard to symptom severity and frequency by evaluation of the updated version of Work Productivity and Activity Impairment Questionnaire: Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (WPAI-GERD)questionnaire.
    To assess utility values with regard to symptom severity and frequency by evaluation of EQ-5D questionnaire.
    To describe which patients will benefit from a more efficient acid secretion inhibitor by evaluation of a Quality Assurance of GERD Treatment Questionnaire (Kvalitetsuppföljning av Refluxterapi, KURT).
    To evaluate Willingness To Pay (WTP) with regard to symptom relief by assessment of WTP questions.
    To assess safety by evaluation of Serious Adverse Events (SAE) and Discontinuations due to Adverse Events (DAE).

    9. Pregnancy or lactation. Women of childbearing potential must maintain effective contraception during the study period as judged by the investigator

    10. Suspected poor capability to follow instructions of the study, e.g. because of difficulty to read/understand Swedish, a history of drug abuse, or any other reason, as judged by the investigator.

    11. Previous randomisation of treatment in the present study or participation in a clinical study during the last 30 days
