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   42330   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6971   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. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    ‘Emergence delirium’ (ED) is described as a mental disorder during recovery from general anaesthesia. After the introduction of new inhalation anaesthetics such as sevoflurane, this phenomenon again gained prominence. The specific cause is unknown. Objective of the research
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary research inquiry being raised concerns anaesthesia related causes:
    Is it possible that adapting an amount of sevoflurane, from 1 MAC (minimum alveolar concentration) (2,5 vol%) to ½ MAC (1,25 vol%) in an MRI scan can reduce the frequency and gravity of ‘emergence delirium’?
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary research inquiry being raised concerns patient related causes:
    Are parents’ and children’s anxiety at induction, as well as their behaviour, a predictive value for the appearance of ‘ED’?
    In case a significant ‘ED’ appears, can this lead to an increase of behavioural disorders at 1 day, 1 week and 2 weeks after intervention?
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    b. Inclusion criteria
    1. age between 1,5-6 years old
    2. written permission (informed consent)
    3. no premedication
    4. children who have to undergo a diagnostic MRI scan
    5. ASA status 1-2
    6. parents who speak Dutch
    7. parent present at induction
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. cognitive or emotional development disorder (with exception of ’attention deficit hyperactivity disorder’ (ADHD))
    2. use of active ingredients (AI) which influence the central nervous system (anticonvulsants)
    3. those who run the risk of developing malignant hyperthermia
    4. hypersensitivity to the inhalation anaesthetic sevoflurane and to propofol
    5. need for premedication
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Main study parameters/endpoints: The primary endpoints are the maximum scores on the ‘Pediatric Anesthesia Emergence Delirium Scale’ (PAED) until 1 hour after having stopped the administration of the anaesthetic. We consider a score of >10 on the PAED scale as cut-off for the presence or absence of ED. The secondary endpoints are the time between terminating the administration and the removal of the laryngeal mask airway and the time of reaction (‘responsiveness’) to light or gentle tactile stimulation.

    Group B sevoflurane 0,5 MAC (1,25 vol.%) (14, 27-28)
