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   41189   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    - to determine the efficacy of topical applications of ImCOOH cream administered for 14 days with an additional morning application on Day 15 in patients with atopic dermatitis;
    - to determine the safety and tolerability of topical applications of ImCOOH cream administered for 14 days with an additional morning application on Day 15 in patients with atopic dermatitis.

    - to determine the systemic exposure to and urinary excretion of ImCOOH after topical applications of ImCOOH cream administered for 14 days with an additional morning application on Day 15 in patients with atopic dermatitis;
    - to determine the endogenous exposure to and urinary excretion of ImCOOH.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No

    b. use hormonal based contraceptives in combination with a barrier contraceptive (i.e., male condom, diaphragm or cervical cap, or female condom);

    12. Patients with any acute skin infection (superinfection or secondary impetiginisation).
    13. Any condition (including but not limited to alcohol and drug use), which in the opinion of the investigator could compromise the patient safety or compliance with trial procedures.
    14. Any history or currently active allergy such as but not limited to drug allergy, food allergy or hay fever.
    15. Previously demonstrated clinically significant allergy or hypersensitivity to any of the excipients of the trial medication administered in this trial.
