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   43936   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7310   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
    Is a multimodal intervention for cancer cacheixa feasible?

    Specific indiviudal treatments such as exercise, nutritional advice, dietary supplements and anti-inflammatory medications have been shown to be beneficial in isolation in the treatment of cancer cachexia. It is hypothesized that combining all of these as a "multimodal intervention" may be beneficial. Before a definitive study is conducted to assess this, it is important that the feasibility of delivering such an intervention is assessed - which is the purpose of the proposed study.

    The feasibility will be assessed by:
    •Enrolment rate
    •Compliance with study intervention, study procedures and data collection
    •Contamination-rate in the control group with respect to any of the interventions in the intervention group
    •Provide an estimate of the sample size required in futures studies in cachexia
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    •Can the intervention stabilise or improve skeletal muscle mass?
    •Can the intervention improve or stabilize physical function?
    •Can the intervention improve or stabilize nutrition?
    •Can the intervention reduce fatigue?
    •Does the intervention improve overall survival?
