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' permesso l’uso di inibitori della DPP-4. -Saranno ritenuti validi solo i valori di HbA1c esaminati entro i tre mesi precedenti alla randomizzazione. Qualora in quei tre mesi fossero stati effettuati piu' esami e quindi siano disponibili piu' valori di HbA1c allora si terra' in considerazione il valore piu' recente. Per un/una paziente la cui HbA1c sia &gt;10,0% sara' possibile, a discrezione dello sperimentatore, procedere all’aggiustamento della terapia orale a base di AHA e sottoporre nuovamente il/la paziente a screening per l’idoneita' alla randomizzazione relativamente alla HbA1c (7,0% e 10,0%) dopo un periodo di 3 mesi a dosi stabili di AHA. -Possono essere arruolati i pazienti con qualsiasi livello di rischio CV e che soddisfano tutti gli altri criteri di inclusione. L’arruolamento sara' controllato in modo tale da ottenere approssimativamente un 40% di pazienti non interessati da precedenti eventi CV e un 60% di pazienti interessati da un precedente evento CV definito come almeno uno dei seguenti: storia di manifestazione clinica maggiore di coronaropatia, ovvero infarto del miocardio, procedura chirurgica o percutanea (palloncino e/o stent) di rivascolarizzazione coronarica o angiografia coronarica che evidenzi almeno una stenosi 50% in un’arteria epicardica maggiore o in una diramazione vascolare; -malattia cerebrovascolare ischemica, tra cui: storia di ictus ischemico. Gli ictus non emorragici saranno accettati in questo criterio; storia di arteriopatia carotidea documentata da stenosi 50% rilevata tramite ecocardiografia della carotide, risonanza magnetica (RM) o angiografia, con o senza sintomi di deficit neurologico; arteriopatia periferica aterosclerotica documentata da evidenza obiettiva come amputazione dovuta a vasculopatia, sintomi correnti di claudicazione intermittente confermata da un indice pressorio caviglia-braccio o alluce-braccio inferiore a 0,9 o storia di procedura chirurgica o di rivascolarizzazione percutanea. Le pazienti di sesso femminile non devono essere in stato di allattamento e devono acconsentire ad utilizzare un metodo di contraccezione efficace o diversamente non devono essere a rischio di sviluppare una gravidanza. Il/la paziente comprende le procedure dello studio, i trattamenti alternativi disponibili, i rischi correlati allo studio e acconsente volontariamente a partecipare fornendo il suo consenso informato scritto. Il/la paziente acconsente a fornire l’autorizzazione a ottenere tutte le cartelle cliniche necessarie per un completo accertamento dei dati durante il periodo di follow-up, nonche' alla comunicazione tra il centro di studio e il medico curante per facilitare la terapia di routine. Il/la paziente e' maggiorenne all’arruolamento.
