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   38485   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6324   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.

    For regulatory purposes, the end of trial will be approximately 3,5 years after the last patient has been randomised into the trial. This period will allow for the trial treatment to be completed and for all data to be captured. This period will be classed as the interventional phase of the trial.
    For the Research Ethics approval, the trial will be the last date of data capture or the last analysis conducted on the biological material collected whichever is the later.
