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   38876   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6392   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.

    Secondary objectives are
    •to evaluate whether ranibizumab (0.5 mg) as adjunctive or mono-therapy is superior to laser treatment
    -in the number of patients with visual acuity above 73 letters and
    -in the number of patients with improvement in BCVA.
    •to evaluate the time course of BCVA changes on ranibizumab (0.5 mg) adjunctive and mono-therapy relative to laser treatment
    •to evaluate the effects of ranibizumab (0.5 mg) adjunctive and mono-therapy on central retinal thickness and other anatomical changes relative to laser treatment
    •to evaluate the effects of ranibizumab (0.5 mg) adjunctive and mono-therapy on patient-reported outcomes (PROs) relative to laser treatment
    •to evaluate the safety of intravitreal injections of ranibizumab (0.5 mg) as adjunctive and mono-therapy in patients with DME overall and relative to laser treatment.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary objective is to demonstrate superiority of ranibizumab 0,5 mg as adjunctive and/or mono-therapy to laser treatment in the mean change from baseline in BCVA over a 12-month treatment period. The primary variable will be the difference between the average level of BCVA (letters) over all monthly post-baseline assessments from Month 1 to Month 12 and the baseline level of BCVA.
