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   39224   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6426   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    The diagnosis of Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) requires radiographically proven sacroiliitis.Inflammation on MRI is a prognostic factor for the development of AS. The aim is the decrease of inflammation on MRI of the SI joint and/or spine by giving them, a short period, anti-TNF therapy. The study is designed as a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. After inclusion patients are randomly assigned to the etanercept- or placebo-arm of the study in a 1:1 ratio during 16 weeks.

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    Decrease of inflammation on MRI.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Improvement of disease acitivty scores.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
