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   39233   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6427   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.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To determine the effect of conversion from calcineurin inhibitor (CI)- to sirolimus (SRL)-based therapy on renal function 52 weeks after randomization, as indicated by the change from baseline calculated glomerular filtration rate (GFR) (Nankivell method), and to demonstrate:
    a)superiority of the SRL conversion versus CI continuation regimens in subjects with baseline Nankivell GFRs greater than (>) 40 milliliter per minute (mL/min). OR
    b)noninferiority of the SRL conversion versus CI continuation regimens in subjects with baseline Nankivell GFRs of 20 to 40 mL/min, and to establish superiority in this group if the results are consistent with this conclusion.
    To assess equivalence 52 weeks after randomization between treatment groups in the composite endpoint of the incidence of the first occurrence of biopsy-confirmed acute rejection, graft loss, or death.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
