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   38003   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
    • To compare the pharmacodynamic response of single oral doses of PSN821 following a
    MMTT (based on the area under the glucose concentration-time curve from 1-6 hours
    post-dose, i.e. from 0-5 hours after a MMTT)
    • To establish the dose response relationship for the glucose lowering effect of PSN821
    using reactive glucose area under the curve (AUC)
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To compare other pharmacodynamic properties (based on glucose, insulin and C-peptide
    measurements) of single oral doses of PSN821 before and following a MMTT
    • To compare the pharmacokinetic (PK) exposure and properties of each single oral dose
    for 12h post-dosing
