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   42750   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7040   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.

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Any prior receipt of QUTENZA open label or blinded study patches
    2. Use of oral or transdermal opioids exceeding a total daily dose of morphine of 80 mg/day, or equivalent; or any parenteral opioids, regardless of dose, within 7 days preceding the first patch application visit.
    3. Lack of an effective pain medication strategy for the subject, such as unwillingness to use opioid analgesics during study treatment, or high tolerance to opioids precluding the ability to relieve treatment-associated discomfort with oxicodone or other analgesic, as judged by the investigator
    4. Active substance abuse or history of chronic substance abuse within 1 year prior to enrolment or prior chronic substance abuse (including alcoholism) judged likely to re-occur during the study period by the investigator
    5. Use of any topical pain medication, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, menthol, methyl salicylate, local anaesthetics, steroids or capsaicin products on the painful areas within 7 days preceding the first patch application visit
    6. Current use of any investigational agent (excluding antiretrovirals in Phase 3 evaluation to treat HIV infection)
    7. Unstable or poorly controlled hypertension or a recent history of a cardiovascular event which, in the opinion of the investigator, would put the patient at risk of adverse cardiovascular reactions related to the patch application procedure
    8. Evidence of another contributing cause for peripheral neuropathy, and/or treatment within 90 days prior to screening visit with any drug that may have contributed to the sensory neuropathy
    9. Past or current history of Type I or Type II diabetes mellitus
    10. Current psychotic disorders

    15. Posttraumatic neuropathic pain due to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS, Type I)
    16. Active malignancy or history of malignancy during the past 5 years (a history of squamous cell carcinoma or a basal cell carcinoma not involving the area to be treated is allowed)
    17. Evidence of cognitive impairment including dementia that may interfere with subject’s ability to complete study evaluations and recall pain levels in the past 24 hours
    18. Planned elective surgery during the trial
    19. Neuropathic pain areas located only on the face, above the hairline of the scalp, and/or in proximity to mucous membranes.
