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   41198   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6743   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) .
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

Acceptable forms of contraception are defined as those with a failure rate < 1% when properly applied and include: a combination oral pill, some intra-uterine devices, and a sterilized partner in a stable relationship. Female patients must not be actively breast-feeding through the entire study period.
    6. Able to comprehend the full nature and purpose of the study, including possible risks and side effects, and also able to comply with all requirements of the study. Must be able to understand and voluntarily sign a written informed consent prior to any study procedures.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Patients who meet any of the following criteria at Screening are to be excluded from study participation:
    1. Patients with limited distal proctitis (from anal verge up to 15 cm above the pectineal line).

    9. Patients with active tuberculosis or any other active systemic or local bacterial, fungal, or viral infection.
    10. Patients with liver cirrhosis, evident hepatic or renal disease or insufficiency, or significant impairment of the biohumoral parameters (≥ 2.5 x upper limit of normal [ULN] for ALT, AST, GGT, or ≥ 2 x ULN for creatinine). Elevations in bilirubin due to benign conditions such as Gilbert’s syndrome are not exclusionary.
    11. Patients with severe diseases in other organs or systems.
    12. Patients with local or systemic complications or other pathological states requiring therapy with corticosteroids and/or immunosuppressive agents.

    18. Prior treatment with budesonide MMX.
    19. Use of oral corticosteroids including other budesonide formulations within the last 4 weeks prior to randomization.
    20. Use of any rectal 5-ASA or corticosteroid formulations within the last 2 weeks prior to randomization.
