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   37743   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6185   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.

    F.5 Plans for treatment or care after the subject has ended the participation in the trial (if it is different from the expected normal treatment of that condition)
    The study drug adalimumab would not normally be licensed for treatment of these patients. The aim of the study is to determine efficacy with early use hence after 6 months the study drug will be stopped. However, patients will continue to receive standard treatment with methotrexate and if they fulfil nationally accepted criteria for biologics such as adalimumab they may receive this as part of standard future treatment if their condition does not improve.
