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   43974   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7312   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 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    The primary objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of the combination of everolimus and capecitabine in a group of patients with metastatic or locally advanced HCC. In addition, to investigate biomarkers of HCC before and during the systemic treatment reflecting states of tumour cell growth and growth arrest (state of tumour cell dormancy).

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The primary objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of the combination of everolimus and capecitabine in a group of patients with metastatic or locally advanced HCC with Child-Pugh class B liver cirrosis. In addition, to investigate biomarkers of HCC before and during the systemic treatment reflecting states of tumour cell growth and growth arrest (state of tumour cell dormancy). Circulating proteins can be measured and used as reasonably reliable markers of changes in tumour cell load (e.g., alfa fertoprotein).
