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   42568   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7009   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).

    Phase 1 trials conducted solely in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary study objective is to determine if IVIg treatment is better tolerate and/or more efficacious versus high doses intravenous metilprednisolone (MPIV) in CIDP induction (15 days) and long term improvement maintenance (6 months). This objective will be evaluated comparing the percentage of patients suspending IVIg and of patients suspending MPIV during the 6 months of treatment after undesiderable effects or treatment inefficacy (lack of response or worsening).
    L'obiettivo primario dello studio e' determinare se il trattamento con IVIg sia meglio tollerato e/o piu' efficace del metilprednisolone ad alte dosi per via endovenosa (MPIV) nell'induzione (15 giorni) e mantenimento del miglioramento a lungo termine (6 mesi) nella CIDP. Questo verra' valutato confrontando le percentuali dei pazienti che sospendono le IVIg e di quelli che sospendono il MPIV durante i sei mesi di trattamento a seguito di effetti collaterali o inefficacia del trattamento (mancata risposta o peggioramento).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The second objective is to evaluate if IVIg treatment is more efficacious versus high doses intravenous metilprednisolone (IVMP)in relapse preventing after 6 months suspension of therapy.
    L'obiettivo secondario e' valutare se il trattamento con IVIg e' piu' efficace del metilprednisolone ad alte dosi per via endovenosa (MPIV) nel prevenire le recidive nei sei mesi successivi alla sospensione della terapia.
