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   42336   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6971   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 in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    We would like to evaluate the beneficial effects of fibrate treatment on muscle mitochondrial and cardiac function in patients with NLSDM.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary objectives are to improve hepatic and skeletal muscle insulin sensitivity,
    thereby reducing morbidities and mortality in NLSDM patients.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Patients need to have NLSDM; as there are only 6 patients in the world and 2 of them in the Netherlands, we aim to include both patients.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    This is more a case study, therefore we don't have any exclusion criteria.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Main study parameters are the changes in mitochondrial function, cardiac, hepatic and
    muscle lipid accumulation and cardiac function after treatment.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    These endpoints will be evaluated after 12 weeks.
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    As secondary endpoints changes in insulin sensitivity is considered.
