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   37212   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6120   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.

Satisfactory contraception has not been used for ≥28 days prior to the Enrollment Visit (Visit 1) and patient does not agree to use it during the entire trial and until 28 days after the Final Visit (Visit 4) or the Withdrawal Visit. Women of childbearing age not counseled about the use of adequate contraception.
    7. Any surgery performed in the 3 months prior to the Enrollment Visit (Visit 1) or any surgery scheduled or expected during the trial.
