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   38870   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6391   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy endpoint will be repeat paracentesis response (RPR) defined as at least a twofold increase in TRP as compared to the average of the 2 intervals between the 3 most recent paracenteses prior to study registration. TRP will be defined as the number of days between the date of registration and the date of the first post-registration paracentesis. For this endpoint, each patient will be followed for 6 months or until study withdrawal.
