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   42556   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7007   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) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Le critère principal d’évaluation est la mesure des taux d’hydrogène expirés avant et après administration de 10g de lactulose.
    Cinq tests respiratoires seront effectués pour chaque sujet avant et après administration de lactulose, au début et à la fin de chaque période de traitement (voir annexe 17.3):
    - Sélection, visite V1
    - période 1, visite V2 (J7 ± 3),
    - période 1, visite V3 (J14 ± 3),
    - période 2, visite V4 (J21 ± 3),
    - période 2, visite V5 (J28 ± 3).
    Les temps de mesure seront (en minutes) : -15, 0 (ingestion de lactulose), 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90, 105, 120, 135, 150, 165, 180, 195, 210, 225 et 240.

    Chaque sac à gaz hermétique utilisé lors des tests respiratoires sera identifié par :
    - le numéro de protocole,
    - le code sujet composé du numéro de centre, du numéro de patient, des initiales du sujet (3 premières lettres du nom et les 2 premières du prénom),
    - l’identification de la visite (V1, V2, V3, V4 ou V5),
    - la date de la visite,
    - le temps du recueil en minutes.
