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
    To investigate whether sustained trough levels of IFX can be achieved using IFX trough level measurements and adjustment of dosing based upon these levels by means of two different standardized algorythms in comparison with ‘standard of care’ IFX treatment and its effects on clinical and endoscopic outcomes
    Het doel van het onderzoek is het vergelijken van de effectiviteit van de behandeling met infliximab, bij patiënten die behandeld worden volgens de standaard versus patiënten die behandeld worden op geleide van de bloedspiegels.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • Clinical remission (CDAI <150) at each visit and the whole study period
