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   38876   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6392   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.

    Dual energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) and PK/PD sub-study, version dated 22 October 2009:
    Approximately 40 subjects per arm (approximately 160 subjects in total) will be enrolled into this sub-study to undergo DXA scans of the lumbar spine and proximal femur and have blood drawn for
    PK/PD analysis. This sub-study will evaluate the percent change from baseline on lumbar spine and hip BMD at Week 52. Blood samples will be used for assessment of AMG 785, sclerostin, and bone turnover markers P1NP and CTX.
    The evaluation of the Dutch version of the Hip disability and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (HOOS) as an outcomes instrument in a hip fracture population will be performed in the Netherlands.
