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   36118   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5936   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).

    Preschool wheeze
    MedDRA Classification

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The principal objective of this research is to determine whether intermittent parent-initiated treatment with oral montelukast in preschool children with a history of wheeze, reduces the need for unscheduled medical attention for wheeze. To assess this treatment will be started by parents or guardians i) at the onset of every cold and continued for a minimum of 7 days or until wheeze has resolved for 48 hours, and ii) for every episode of wheeze not associated with a viral cold, and stopped when symptoms have resolved for 48 hours. For each child, the trial will last 12 months.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Respiratory morbidity

    • Number of days with parent-reported wheeze over the 12 month trial period
    • Number of admissions to hospital over the 12 month trial period
    • Duration of admissions to hospital over the 12 month trial period
    • Time to first attack of wheeze
    • Number of unscheduled GP consultations for wheeze
    • Duration of episodes by diary card
    • Severity of episodes by diary card
    • Parent’s overall impression of efficacy of IMP (trial medication)


    Health service use

    • Unscheduled GP consultation with exacerbation of wheeze, expressed as time from randomisation to first attendance and annual attendance rate
    • A&E attendance with wheeze exacerbation, expressed as time from randomisation to first attendance and annual attendance rate
    • Unscheduled hospital admission with wheeze exacerbation, expressed as time from randomisation to first admission and annual rate of admissions
    • Total duration of hospital admissions for exacerbation of wheeze
