Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43974   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7312   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The overall objective of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of high dose and low dose Asacol administered as 400 mg delayed-release tablets given every 12 hours for 6 weeks to children and adolescents with mildly-to-moderately active ulcerative colitis.
    The primary efficacy objective is to assess the proportion of patients that achieve treatment success using the validated Pediatric Ulcerative Colitis Activity Index (PUCAI).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary efficacy objectives are to assess the following:
    • PUCAI Complete Response;
    • PUCAI Partial Response;
    • PUCAI Treatment Failure;
    • Truncated Mayo Treatment Success;
    • Truncated Mayo Complete Response;
    • Truncated Mayo Partial Response;
    • Truncated Mayo Treatment Failure.
    To assess biomarker resolution in Asacol treated pediatric patients with mildly-to-moderately active UC, secondary objectives will include assessment of biomarker endpoints as follows:
    • the proportion of patients who show reduction from Baseline in the fecal and serum
    lactoferrin and calprotectin biomarkers;
    • the proportion of patients who achieve a specified cutoff level in fecal lactoferrin and calprotectin biomarkers;
    • the change in lactoferrin and calprotectin biomarkers from Baseline to Week 6.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
