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   36859   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6085   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.

    6. Tener una concentración sérica en la fase folicular temprana (día 2 a 4) de FSH inicial ? 12 UI/l determinada en el propio laboratorio del centro durante el periodo de evaluación previa (es decir, en los dos meses anteriores al inicio de la supresión hipofisaria).
    7. Presencia de ambos ovarios.
    8. Cavidad uterina normal, que en opinión del investigador sea compatible con el embarazo.
    9. Tener una citología cervical negativa en los seis meses anteriores a la asignación aleatoria.

(definido como ? 30 días desde la última dosis de tratamiento con citrato de clomifeno o gonadotropina) desde el último ciclo de TRA, o tratamiento con citrato de clomifeno o gonadotropina antes del inicio del tratamiento con un agonista de la GnRH.
    11. Estar dispuesta y ser capaz de cumplir el protocolo mientras dure el estudio.
    12. Haber dado el consentimiento informado por escrito, antes de cualquier procedimiento relacionado con el estudio que no constituya parte de la atención médica normal, dando por entendido que la paciente puede retirar su consentimiento en cualquier momento sin perjuicio de su atención médica futura.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    El criterio principal de valoración de la eficacia se determinará por el número total de ovocitos recuperados por paciente después de la estimulación con GONAL f® y de la inyección de gonadotropina coriónica humana (r hCG [Ovitrelle®]) en ambos grupos de tratamiento.

    Endpoints:
    The primary efficacy endpoint will be measured by the total number of oocytes retrieved per subject following GONAL-f stimulation and human chorionic gonadotrophin (r hCG (Ovidrel/Ovitrelle) injection in both treatment arms.
