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   37199   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6122   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).

    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    The purpose of this early access program was to provide telaprevir for participants with genotype 1 chronic hepatitis C with severe fibrosis or compensated cirrhosis who resided in countries in which telaprevir was not commercially available at the time of protocol writing and who were not eligible for enrollment into an ongoing clinical study of telaprevir, and to collect additional safety and tolerability data on telaprevir treatment in combination with pegylated interferon alpha (Peg-IFN-alfa) and ribavirin (RBV).
    Protection of trial subjects
    Assessment of safety and tolerability was based on reported adverse events (AEs), clinical laboratory tests, vital sign measurements, electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring, and physical examinations.
