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   43233   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7153   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.

    F.5 Plans for treatment or care after the subject has ended the participation in the trial (if it is different from the expected normal treatment of that condition)
    Subjects will not receive any additional treatment from GSK after completion of the study because other treatment options are available and for subjects in remission,the value of belimumab maintenance therapy is unclear.Equally for pt. who have not achieved remission with belimumab by 2 years, the value of extending therapy beyond 2 years is unclear. The investigator is responsible for ensuring that consideration has been given to the poststudy care of the patient’s medical condition.
    GSK non fornirà alcun trattamento dopo il completamento dello studio in quanto esistono altre opzioni terapeutiche e per i soggetti in remissione non è chiaro il ruolo della terapia di mantenimento con belimumab. Analogamente per i soggetti che non hanno avuto la remissione dopo 2 anni di terapia, non è chiaro il beneficio di un’estensione della stessa. Sarà cura del PI assicurare una corretta terapia dopo il completamento dello studio.
