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   36095   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5934   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)
    Primary endpoint consists of a composite endpoint concerning meaningful improvement across 2 of 3 Sjögren’s syndrome disease domains: oral, ocular, and laboratory tests. Oral improvement will be defined as ≥20% in the patient’s assessment of dry eyes (on a 100 mm VAS) or ≥20% improvement in total unstimulated salivary flow. Ocular improvement will be difined as ≥20% improvement in either the patient’s assessment of dry eyes by VAS or the results of the Schirmer test without anaesthetic. Laboratory improvement will be defined as ≥20% improvement in the serum IgG or the ESR.
