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   41205   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6749   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    19. Treatment with any agent known to significantly inhibit or induce drug-metabolizing enyzmes (e.g., barbiturates, phenothiazines, etc.) within 4 weeks preceding the screening visit.

    20. Treatment with opioids (e.g., tramadol, meperidine derivatives), SNRIs (e.g., venlafaxine, duloxetine), tri- or tetra-cyclic antidepressants, MAO inhibitors (e.g. selegiline), in the 8 weeks prior to the screening visit. Dextromethorphan will be permitted if used for treating cough.

    21. Treatment with a depot neuroleptic within one injection cycle, or oral neuroleptics within 4 weeks prior to the screening visit.

    22. Treatment with a drug that has hepatotoxic potential, e.g., tamoxifen, within 4 weeks, or received radiation therapy or a drug with cytotoxic potential, e.g, chemotherapy, within one year prior to the screening visit.

    23. Diagnosis of HIV, or tests positive for Hepatitis C antibodies, or Hepatitis B surface antigen.

    24. Any abnormality that the investigator deems to be clinically relevant, either on medical history, physical examination, ECG or in a diagnostic laboratory test.
