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   37565   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6160   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 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To evaluate the effects of 9-month Rimonabant treatment as compared to placebo on overnight urinary albumin excretion (UAE) rate (considered as a continuous variable) in overweight (BMI >27), abdominal obese patients with T2DM and microalbuminuria (UAE 20-200 µg/min) on background ACE inhibitor (ramipril) therapy.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To determine the effect of 9 months Rimonabant treatment versus placebo on changes in: Body weight, waist circumference (WC), BMI ; Glucose metabolic parameters (fasting glucose, fasting insulinemia, HbA1C, HOMA- IR); Lipid and lipoprotein profile (Total Cholesterol, HDL-C, LDL-C, triglyceride, apoprotein A1 and B); Hormone and adipokines concentrations (glucagone, leptin, adiponectin); GFR [as assessed by iohexol plasma clearance], albumin fractional clearance; Through (before study drug administration) and 24-hour blood pressure ; Need for antidiabetic, antihypertensive and lipid lowering agents ; Overall cardiovascular disease risk score ; Quality of life: IWQOL questionnaire . To determine the effect of 9 months Rimonabant treatment versus placebo on progression to macroalbuminuria (UAE >200 µg/min) and on regression to normoalbuminuria (UAE <20 µg/min). To assess the safety of 9 months Rimonabant treatment versus placebo in these patients.
