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   42732   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7035   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    There are two Co-Primary Endpoints:

    · Cambio en la distancia recorrida en el 6MWT desde basal a la Semana 16. Se considera clínicamente relevante una diferencia de al menos 35 m respecto al placebo. Se prevé que este parámetro exhiba una distribución normal con una desviación estándar de 65 m.

    · PVR en reposo en la Semana 16 expresada como un porcentaje del valor basal. Se considera clínicamente relevante una media geométrica en el grupo activo que muestre una reducción de al menos el 20% comparada con la media geométrica del placebo. Se prevé que el logaritmo natural de este parámetro exhiba una distribución normal con una desviación estándar de 0.280.
