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   40651   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6635   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.

Surgical sterilization procedures should be supported with clinical doumentation made available to the sponsor and noted in the Relevant Medical History / Current medical Conditions section of the CRF.
    All female patients must have negative pregnancy test results at sreening and at baseline.
    •Male patients must be using two acceptable methods of contraception, (e.g., spermicidal gel plus condom) for the entire duration of the study, up to the Study Completion visit, and refrain from fathering a child in the three (3) months following last study drug administration.
    Periodic abstinence and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception.
