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   37736   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6184   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.

    End point title
    Percentage Change from Baseline in Serum N-Terminal Propeptides of Type I Collagen (s-P1NP) at Month 24
    End point description
    Serum samples were collected to evaluated biochemical markers for s-P1NP, which were measured at Baseline and at Months 3, 6, 12, 18, and 24. This endpoint was based on the Per-Protocol (PP) population, which excluded participants due to important deviations from the protocol that may have substantially affected the results.

    Statistical analysis description
    A cLDA method was used for this statistical analysis. The cLDA model includes the log-transformed baseline and log-transformed post-baseline measurements up to Month 24 in the response vector, with fixed effects for treatment, time, geographic region, treatment-by-time interaction and geographic region-by-time interaction.
