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   43801   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7272   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 study objective is to assess the efficacy of a single dose of Dysport (750 U) compared to placebo for the improvement in the daily incontinence episode frequency (IEF) for each administration mode (15 or 30 injection sites).
    L'obiettivo primario dello studio è di valutare l'efficacia di una singola dose di Dysport (750 U) rispetto al placebo per il miglioramento della frequenza degli episodi di incontinenza (FEI) giornaliera per ciascuna modalità di somministrazione (15 o 30 siti di iniezione).
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The secondary study objective is to assess the change over time in urodynamic parameters (manocystometric measurements according to the 'Good Urodynamic Practice' of the ICS) quality of life, catheterisations and the response to treatment following treatment with a single dose of Dysport (750 U) compared to placebo for each administration mode (15 or 30 injection sites), as well as the pain induced by the injection procedure.
    L'obiettivo secondario dello studio è valutare le variazioni nel tempo dei parametri urodinamici (misurazioni cistomanometriche secondo la ''Good Urodynamic Practice'' della International Continence Society (ICS)), la qualità della vita, il cateterismo e la risposta al trattamento con una singola dose di Dysport (750 U) rispetto al placebo per ciascuna modalità di somministrazione (15 o 30 siti di iniezione), e il dolore conseguente alla procedura iniettiva.

    All patients suffering from neurogenic detrusor overactivity due to spinal cord injury or multiple sclerosis are treated as standard of care by anticholinergics depending on the personal tolerance to these medications of each patient. This treatment will be continued after the study following the investigator recommendations.
    I pazienti affetti da iperattività del detrusore di origine neurognea dovuta a lesione del midollo spinale o a slerosi multipla sono trattati secondo il trattamento di riferimento anticolinergico se ben tollerato individualmente. Questo trattamento sarà continuato dopo la fine dello studio su raccomandazione del medico.
