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   39185   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6421   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.

This includes women who are using contraceptives or whose sexual partners are either sterile or using contraceptives. Medically acceptable forms of contraception include oral contraceptives, injectable or implantable methods, intrauterine devices, or properly used barrier contraception. Additionally, the use of condoms is suggested as an adjunct to the methods previously addressed to protect against sexually transmitted diseases and to provide additional protection against accidental pregnancy.

    3. Serious infection (requiring parenteral antibiotic and/or hospitalization) within one month prior to screening or baseline visit.
    4. Abnormality in hematology or chemistry profiles at screening or baseline visit: alanine transaminase (ALT) and aspartate transaminase (AST) ≥ 2 x the upper limit of normal: hemoglobin ≤ 85 g/L (8.5 g/dL); platelet count ≤ 125 x109/L (125,000 cells/mm3); white blood cell count ≤ 3.5 x109/L (3,500 cells/mm3); serum creatinine ≥ 177 µmol/L (2 mg/dL).
    5. Evidence of skin conditions at the time of the screening or baseline visit (eg, eczema) that would interfere with evaluations of the effect of test article on psoriasis.
    6. Receipt of any investigational drug(s) within 3 months of baseline visit.
    7. Receipt of any live (attenuated) vaccine within one month prior to baseline visit.
    8. Receipt of alefacept, efalizumab, anti-CD4 agents, and diphtheria IL-2 fusion protein 6 months prior to baseline visit.
    9. PUVA, UVA, or UVB therapy one month prior to baseline visit.
    10. Receipt of any systemic psoriasis therapy (including methotrexate) or oral or parenteral corticosteroids one month prior to baseline visit.
    11. Topical steroids, topical vitamin A or D analog preparations or anthralin 2 weeks prior to baseline visit (exception – topical steroids at no higher than moderate strength are permitted on the scalp, axillae, groin, but dose and brand must be kept constant for the duration of part A).
