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   43973   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7311   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.

    - The annualized protocol defined relapse rate by Week 24;
    - Proportion of patients who remain relapse-free by Week 24;
    - The total number of gadolinium-enhancing T1 lesions observed on MRI scans of the brain at Weeks 4, 8, 12, 16, 20 and 24;
    - The total number of new and/or enlarging gadolinium-enhancing T1 lesions on MRI scans of the brain at Weeks 4, 8, 12, 16, 20 and 24;
    - Change in total volume of T2 lesions on MRI scans of the brain from baseline to Week 24;
    - To evaluate the safety and tolerability of two dose regimens of ocrelizumab in patients with RRMS as compared with placebo and Avonex at Week 24 and the overall safety of ocrelizumab administered for up to 96 weeks;
    - To investigate the pharmacokinetics and other pharmacodynamic study endpoints of ocrelizumab.
