Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43974   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7312   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    - To evaluate the change in each of the individual assessments and composite scores (PGA and modified Mayo Score) at Week 6;
    - To evaluate the change in the individual assessments of stool frequency, rectal bleeding, and PFA at Week 3;
    - To evaluate treatment success in patients with left-sided disease at Week 6.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary efficacy endpoint will be the proportion of patients in each treatment group who achieve treatment success, defined as improvement from baseline at Week 6. Improvement is defined as either a complete response (remission) or a partial response (improvement) to treatment. A complete response is defined as a Physician’s Global Assessment (PGA) of zero (PGA = 0), i.e., complete resolution or normalization of all of the following: stool frequency, rectal bleeding, and Sigmoidoscopy Assessment Score. A partial response is defined as improvement from baseline in the PGA and no worsening in any of the 3 component endpoints.
