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   43800   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7272   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.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Angiomyolipoma response rate is defined as the proportion of patients with a reduction in angiomyolipoma volume of at least 50% relative to baseline, where angiomyolipoma volume is the sum of the volumes of all target angiomyolipomata identified at baseline, and confirmed with a second scan approximately 12 weeks later (and no sooner than 8 weeks later).
    In addition, response requires that:
    • no new angiomyolipomata ≥ 1.0 cm in longest diameter are identified
    • neither kidney increases in volume by more than 20% from nadir (where nadir is the lowest kidney volume obtained for the patient, separately for each kidney, previously during the trial [including baseline])
    • the patient does not have any angiomyolipoma-related bleeding of grade ≥ 2 (as defined by the NCI CTCAE, version 3.0 (http://ctep.cancer.gov/forms/CTCAEv3.pdf)).
