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   43851   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7283   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.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of EXSCEL will be to evaluate the effect of exenatide once weekly (EQW), used in addition to the current usual care for glycemic control, on major macrovascular events when administered to patients with type 2 diabetes.
    Основната цел на проучването EXSCEL е да оцени ефекта на Екзенатид веднъж седмично (ЕВС), прилаган в допълнение към текущата обичайна терапия за гликемичен контрол, върху големите макроваскуларни усложнения при пациенти с диабет тип 2.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary objectives of EXSCEL are to evaluate the effect of EQW treatment used in addition to the current usual care for glycemic control on:
    (1) All cause mortality
    (2) Each of the components of the primary composite CV endpoint
    (3) Hospitalization for acute coronary syndrome (ACS)
    (4) Hospitalization for congestive heart failure (CHF)
    Вторичните цели са да се оцени ефекта на лечението с ЕВС прилагано в допълнение към текущата обичайна терапия за гликемичен контрол върху:
    (1) Смъртността поради каквато и да била причина.
    (2) Всеки един от компонентите на първичната съставна сърдечносъдова крайна точка.
    (3) Хоспитализация поради остър коронарен синдром (ОКС).
    (4) Хоспитализация поради застойна сърдечна недостатъчност (ЗСН).
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Yes
    E.2.3.1Full title, date and version of each sub-study and their related objectives
    Patients enrolled in the trial will have the option to consent separately to provide a whole blood sample for future pharmacogenomic analyses. The objective of collecting blood samples from which genetic analyses can be performed is to investigate the relationships between genetic make-up and clinical events. These samples will be drawn at baseline, or at any point in the trial at which consent is obtained from the patient.
    Patients enrolled in the trial will be asked to consent separately to provide two blood and one urine samples for future biomarker analyses. These specimens (preferably fasting) will be obtained at baseline (prior to drug exposure), annually and trial/early termination.
    Пациентите, включени в това изпитване, ще имат право на избор дали да се съгласят отделно да дадат кръвна проба за бъдещи фармакогеномни анализи. Целта да се събират кръвни проби, на които да могат да се правят генетични анализи, е да се изследват връзките между генетичния профил и клиничните събития. Тези проби ще се вземат на изходна визита или на друг етап от проучването, когато пациентът се съгласи.
    Пациентите в проучването ще бъдат помолени отделно да се съгласят да дадат две проби кръв и една проба урина за бъдещи биомаркерни анализи. Тези проби (за предпочитане взети на гладно) ще бъдат взети на изходна визита (преди приемане на лекарството по проучването), веднъж годишно и при приключване на проучването / преждевременно приключване на участието.
