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   37700   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6177   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.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary endpoint of this study is the MSS over the 15-day treatment period which will be calculated as “area under the curve” by the trapezoid rule. The MSS is the sum of the investigator’s morning assessment of the 5 main rhinosinusitis symptoms on Visit 1 (Day 0), Visit 2 (Day 3), Visit 3 (Day 7), Visit 4 (Day 10) and Visit 5 (Day 14) based on the 4-point rating scale given below:
    0 = None / Not present
    1 = Mild
    2 = Moderate
    3 = Severe
    The 5 main rhinosinusitis symptoms are:
    - rhinorrhea (anterior discharge)
    - postnasal drip
    - nasal congestion
    - headache
    - facial pain / pressure
