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   38002   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6235   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.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    This is an exploratory trial :
    1. To measure the pharmacodynamic (PD) effect on parameters derived from 24-h pH/impedance (MII) monitoring,
    2. To explore the effect on symptoms,
    3. To evaluate the safety and tolerability

    of treatment with 0.5 mg M0003 (on top of PPI treatment), t.i.d. for 4 weeks, in subjects with GERD and with persistent symptoms despite taking a stable dose of proton pump inhibitors
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No

    contraceptives for at least 1 month or using implanted, transdermal or injected
    contraceptive hormones, an intra-uterine device, or continuous abstinence from
    heterosexual sexual contact), or a combination of a barrier method and a spermicidal agent (i.e., cervical cap and spermicidal agent, condom and spermicidal agent, or diaphragm and spermicidal agent), until 30 days after the end of treatment, or until the onset of menses (last day of menses to be documented at screening, baseline visit and visit 6).

    15. Impaired renal function, i.e., serum creatinine concentration >2 mg/dl (>180 μmol/l).
    16. Use of prohibited co-medication less than 7 days before the start of the 2-week runin period (baseline symptom assessment).
    17. Any condition that, in the opinion of the Investigator(s), would complicate or
    compromise the trial (e.g., human immunodeficiency virus [HIV] infection,
    gastroduodenal ulcer) or the well-being of the subject, or evidence of any clinically
    relevant pathology that could interfere with trial results or put subject safety at risk.
    18. Participation in an investigational drug trial in 30 days prior to enrolment.
    19. Breast-feeding subjects.
