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   42517   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7000   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

A history of intolerance or an unsatisfactory response to at least a 3-month course of at least 1 disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD) at an adequate dose. PsA: &#8805; 2 active joints (swollen or, in the absence of swelling, limited range of motion accompanied by either pain or tenderness). A history of intolerance or an unsatisfactory response to at least a 3-month course of at least 1 DMARD at an adequate dose. ERA: 2 active joints (swollen or, in the absence of swelling, limited range of motion accompanied by either pain or tenderness) A history of intolerance or an unsatisfactory response to at least 1 of the following: at least a 1-month course of at least 1 nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) at an adequate dose OR at least a 3-month course of at least 1 DMARD at an adequate dose. 3.Subjects taking hydroxychloroquine, sulphasalazine, or methotrexate (MTX) must have been receiving these for at least 3 months before the baseline visit.
