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   43724   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7255   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.1.2Term Cystic fibrosis
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective is to investigate whether AZD9668 shows evidence of efficacy in CF patients by investigation of:
    - Absolute and differential neutrophil count in induced sputum.
    - Signs and symptoms of CF (including effects on QoL)
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives are:
    - To investigate the effect of AZD9668 on NE activity in sputum
    - To investigate the effect of AZD9668 on other inflammatory markers in sputum
    - To investigate the effect of AZD9668 on inflammatory markers in blood
    - To investigate the safety and tolerability of 28 days’ dosing with AZD9668 in CF patients
    - To confirm AZD9668 exposure in plasma and induced sputum
    - To investigate the effect of AZD9668 on urine desmosine (marker of tissue degradation).

    An optional objective in this study is to collect samples for possible retrospective pharmacogenetic analysis to investigate the influence of genotype on pharmacokinetics (and pharmacodynamic response where appropriate). The results of the pharmacogenetic analysis will be reported separately from the main Clinical Study Report (CSR).
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
