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   30403   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   4694   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).
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    Alcohol dependence
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary goal of the present study is to examine the efficacy of high dose baclofen for the treatment of patients with AD in a double-blind, randomized, placebo controlled study.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Furthermore, as a secondary study objective, factors, which may predict the treatment response of baclofen are investigated. In order to assess which patients benefit the most of the treatment with baclofen, it is proposed to examine the role of:
    - anxiety
    - motives to drink
    - personality
    - family history and age of onset of AD
    - genetic endowments

    - Participants who have had more than seven days of inpatient treatment for substance use disorder in the 30 days prior to the start of the study
    - Participants who have used baclofen in the last 30 days
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Based on earlier literature it is expected that 70 % of patients treated with baclofen will achieve and maintain abstinence throughout the experimental period, compared to 20 % of the patients in the placebo condition.
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    after 18 weeks
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    It is expected that there will be a decrease of anxiety, caused by baclofen. Furthermore, a greater number of participants with coping motives will maintain abstinence compared to patients with enhancement motives. Furthermore, it is expected that particular genes predict treatment response.
