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   36399   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5997   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.

Female: (140 – age in years) x (weight in kg) divided by 72 x (serum creatinine in mg/dl) x 0.85 = CLCr (mL/min). -Karnofsky score >70 -An HIV-1 viral load of >=1,000 copies/microL -Willingness to initiate CD4+ cell count-guided chemoprophylaxis to prevent important opportunistic infections -Willingness to abstain from ingesting substances which may alter plasma study drug levels by interaction with the cytochrome P450 system during the study.

These barrier methods are: diaphragm with spermicide substance, femidome (condom for females), cervical caps and condoms. -Laboratory parameters >DAIDS Grade 2 -ALT/AST > DAIDS Grade 1 -Hypersensitivity to any ingredients of the test products -Previous use of Viramune (nevirapine) or any other antiretroviral agents (does not include use of single dose NVP for the prevention of mother to child transmission) -Resistance to NNRTIs or either one of the components of Truvada (emtricitabine or tenofovir disoproxil fumarate) or lamivudine (3TC) based on HIV-1 genotypic resistance testing report obtained at screening -Patients who are receiving other concomitant treatments which are not permitted, as described in the prescribing information -Use of investigational medications (any experimental agent other than the study regimen) within 30 days before study entry or during the trial -Use of immunomodulatory drugs within 30 days before study entry or during the trial (e.g., interferon, cyclosporin, hydroxyurea, interleukin 2) -Patients who have been diagnosed with malignant disease -Patients who in the opinion of the investigator are not candidates for inclusion in the study -Patient with Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML), Visceral Kaposi's Sarcoma (KS), and/or any lymphoma -Any AIDS defining illness that is unresolved, symptomatic or not stable on treatment for at least 12 weeks at screening visit
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint is virologic response by Week 48. Virologic response is defined as VL <50 copies/mL prior to Week 48 and without subsequent virologic rebound or change of ARV therapy prior to Week 48. A virologic rebound is defined by two consecutive measurements of VL >=500 copies/mL, at least two weeks apart, after the measurement of VL <50 copies/mL. If the first VL >=500 copies/mL occurs at Week 48 and this is the first sequential VL value >=500 copies/mL following virologic response, then another measurement at least two weeks later is necessary to confirm whether virologic rebound has occurred.
