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   42559   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7007   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    1. Evaluar el porcentaje de pacientes que cumplen con los criterios de respuesta del Grupo
    de Trabajo Internacional de Evaluación de la Espondilitis Anquilosante (ASAS) para terapias biológicas (ASASBIO) tras 4 semanas de tratamiento con etoricoxib 90 mg/día.
    Un paciente se considerará respondedor al criterio ASASBIO si muestra un 50 % de
    cambio (disminución) relativo o un cambio (disminución) absoluto de 2 (escala 0-10) en el
    BASDAI y en opinión del experto.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1.- Evaluar el porcentaje de pacientes que cumplen con los criterios de respuesta ASAS para
    terapias biológicas (ASASBIO) tras 2 semanas de tratamiento y evaluar si la respuesta positiva es predictiva de la respuesta a las 4 semanas.
    2.- En los pacientes que hayan respondido positivamente al tratamiento a la semana 4 y, que en opinión del investigador deban continuar la terapia, evaluar el mantenimiento de la
    respuesta a la semana 12 y a la semana 24.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    El objetivo primario es calcular el porcentaje de pacientes que cumplen con los criterios de respuesta para terapias biológicas (ASASBIO) (14) a la semana 4.
    Un paciente se considerará respondedor al criterio ASASBIO si muestra un 50 % de
    cambio (disminución) relativo o un cambio (disminución) absoluto de 2 (escala 0-10) en el
    BASDAI y en opinión del experto.
    El ASASBIO se calculará a la semana 2 y 4, y a la semana 12 y 24 en aquellos pacientes con respuesta positiva en la semana 4 que hayan continuado con el tratamiento.
