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   37217   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6123   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.

    It is anticipated that it will take up to 9 months to complete patient recruitment at all study centres. The maximum individual treatment duration will be 3 weeks, for patients participating in the recurrence prevention study [Protocol PRA+SCO/BIA-2093-205].

    For patients not participating in the recurrence prevention study, or discontinued early, there will be a tapering off period, and attendance at V8 and a post study visit (PSV) [See Study Flow Chart in Protocol PRA/BIA-2093-204].

    F.3.3.1Women of childbearing potential not using contraception For clinical trials recorded in the database before the 10th March 2011 this question read: "Women of childbearing potential" and did not include the words "not using contraception". An answer of yes could have included women of child bearing potential whether or not they would be using contraception. The answer should therefore be understood in that context. This trial was recorded in the database on 2005-09-21. Yes

    F.5 Plans for treatment or care after the subject has ended the participation in the trial (if it is different from the expected normal treatment of that condition)
    At Day 10, patients showing no improvement of symptoms will be switched to open-label escape therapy with an established antimanic therapy.
    At the study end of the 3-week treatment, patients who have responded to treatment and who will accept to participate will have the option of entering a recurrence prevention study [Protocol PRA+SCO/BIA-2093-205] or a tapering off at 3-day intervals will occur and patients will be administered an established therapy.
