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   39211   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6426   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.

    E. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    The medical rationale = to investigate this combination drug in the symptomatic relief of common cold with nasal symptoms. The reduction of symptom severity may allow subjects receiving active medication to return to work or school earlier than those receiving placebo.

    To study the drug in it’s ‘natural environment’, community pharmacists will function as local investigators. They will include subjects with early (≤ 48 hours) cold symptoms of blocked nose with headache.
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To assess the effectiveness of Sinutab on the symptom relief of nasal congestion and headache in the setting of a common cold.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1. To assess the effectiveness of Sinutab on the major symptom complex (MSC) of common cold which consists of 4 signs/symptoms: nasal congestion, headache, sore throat, and pressure around the eyes
    2. To assess the effectiveness of Sinutab on the symptom relief of individual sign/symptoms, including nasal congestion, headache, sore throat, and pressure around the eyes
    3. To assess the number of days lost at work or school
    4. To assess the effect of Sinutab on the quality of life (day/night)
    5. To assess time-to-resolution of common cold
    6. Overall safety evaluation
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Information not present in EudraCT

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Change from baseline in the sum of nasal congestion and headache sign/symptom scores during the treatment period. The nasal congestion and headache scores will be summed by day; the daily sums will be averaged over the treatment days; and the change from the baseline will be calculated.
