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   39795   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6532   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of Part 1 (Weeks 0 to 16) is to evaluate the optimal dose regimen of SCH 900222 to induce PASI 75 response at Week 16 in subjects with moderate-to-severe psoriasis.The primary objective of Part 2 (Weeks 16-52) is to evaluate the optimal dose regimen to maintain PASI 75 response at Week 52. The primary objective of Part 3 (Weeks 52-72) is to assess the duration of effect of SCH 900222 as determined by the time at which the Week 52 improvement from baseline is reduced by > 50% (ie, disease relapse). The primary safety objective is to assess the safety/tolerability of multiple-dose administration of SCH 900222.
