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   37226   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6125   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    To determine if the early (within 12 hours of life) prophylactic use of inhaled corticosteroids 9Budesonide) in very preterm infants (gestational age 23 0/7 - 27 6/7 weeks requiring any form of positive pressure support (mechanical or nasal ventilation or CPAP increases survival without BPD at 36 weeks gestational age

    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    To determine whether early inhalation of corticosteroids for the prevention of BPD alters the incidence of infants born prematurely with neurodevelopmental impairment at a corrected age of 18 to 22 months. To determine whether inhalation of corticosteroids is associated with adverse treatment effects, alters mortality at 36 weeks gestational age, BPD incidence at 36 gestational ages, and the duration of positive pressure respiratory support or supplemental oxygen

    A clinical decision not to administer therapies (infant not considered viable), dysmorphic features or congenital malformations that adversely affect life expectancy or neurodevelopment and known or suspected congenital heart disease (not including a persistent ductus arteriosus and/or atrium septum defect). The clinical assessment of dysmorphic features, congenital malformations, suspected congenital heart disease and the decision to exclude an infant for the above mentioned reasons will be left to the discretion of the attending physician.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The parameter for the confirmatory analysis of efficacy will be the incidence of primary endpoints. A primary endpoint is defined as the occurrence of any of the following events during the first 36 weeks of gestational age: (1) death for any reason until the end of week 36 gestational age, (2) BPD according to the physiological condition, diagnosed at 36 weeks +/- 1 day gestational age.
    Η παράμετρος για την επιβεβαιωτική ανάλυση της αποτελεσματικότητας θα είναι η επίπτωση των πρωτευόντων τελικών σημείων. Ένα πρωτεύον τελικό σημείο ορίζεται ως η εμφάνιση του οποιοδήποτε εκ των ακόλουθων συμβαμάτων κατά την διάρκεια των πρώτων 36 εβδομάδων της ηλικίας κύησης: (1) Θάνατος για τον οποιονδήποτε λόγο μέχρι το πέρας της ηλικίας κύησης των 36 εβδομάδων, (2) BPD σύμφωνα με τον φυσιολογικό ορισμό, που διαγιγνώσκεται στην ηλικία κύησης των 36 εβδομάδων +/- 1 ημέρα.
