Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43974   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7312   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 on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    The co-primary efficacy endpoints are the proportion of subjects achieving a grade of none or mild on the investigator’s and on the subject’s assessment of the severity of CFL at maximum smile, based on the FWS.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    day 30 of the first treatment cycle
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The Secondary efficacy endpoints are:

    1. The proportion of responders of the investigator’s FWS in CFL at rest at day 30, among subjects who were rated as at least mild at baseline, where a responder is defined as achieving a 1-grade improvement on the investigator-rated FWS at rest in CFL.

    2. The proportion of responders of the investigator’s FWS in CFL at maximum smile at day 30, where a responder is defined as achieving a 1-grade improvement on the investigator-rated FWS at maximum smile in CFL.

    3. The proportion of responders of the investigator’s FWS in CFL at maximum smile at day 30, where a responder is defined as achieving a rating of none or mild on the investigator-rated FWS at maximum smile in CFL (for US FDA only).

    4. Values at day 30 for the subject’s Global Assessment of Change in CFL (using a 7-point scale) will be analyzed using analysis of variance (ANOVA) with treatment, as the main effect.

    5. The proportion of subjects with a ≥ 2 point improvement over baseline for FLO item #2 at day 30: When I look in the mirror, my facial lines make me look older than I want to look.

    6. The proportion of subjects with a ≥ 2 point improvement over baseline for FLO item #5 at day 30: My facial lines make me look less attractive.

    7. The proportion of subjects with a ≥ 3 point improvement over baseline for FLO item #8 at day 30: My facial lines make me look tired.

    8. Analysis will be performed on the proportion of subjects at day 30, who rate themselves in a younger SPA category than at baseline (ie, from “look my current age” at baseline to “look younger” or from “look older” at baseline to “look my current age/younger”). Only subjects who rated themselves as looking their current age or older at baseline will be included in the denominator of this analysis.
