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   35236   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5759   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.

    - To compare (stringent) complete and very good partial response with MP-Thalidomide versus MP-Lenalidomide
    - To compare overall survival with MP-Thalidomide versus MP-Lenalidomide
    - To assess and compare overall response* with MP-Thalidomide versus MP-Lenalidomide
    - To assess time to maximum response with MP-Thalidomide versus MP-Lenalidomide
    - To assess the effect of maintenance therapy with thalidomide alone following MP-Thalidomide induction or lenalidomide following MP-Lenalidomide, in terms of improvement of response
    - To assess and compare the time from relapse/progression (after initial response) to death in patients having been treated with MP-Thalidomide versus MP-Lenalidomide
